Back in November, I wrote about my wife’s battle with breast cancer and the beginning of her chemotherapy treatment. A post that received so many positive and absolutely lovely messages that both of us were genuinely taken aback. Responses that we are both incredibly grateful for, as they gave us a huge lift during what was an immensely difficult time.
Needless to say things are still very difficult, and despite her incredible bravery and stoicism, there’s still a good way to go. But, seven months down the line, the chemotherapy is finally over. It hasn’t been easy. Not in the slightest. Nothing to do with this dreadful disease is. Yet that said, it does feel like she has taken a big step forward. Progress the doctors are pleased with too. So instead of a sense of dread at the well documented horrors to come, we can at last look towards the future with a tentative sense of hope.
