Hi everyone my name is Clayton.I was married for 23 years got divorced and then met my new partner.After 12 months into the relationship she found a lump on her right breast.Then with 5 surgeries, numerous radition treatments and heaps of chemo she passed away in Jan of this year.With 4 years of being a full time carer I understand the strain that it puts on family and friends.What I am trying to do now is start up a support group for men with wives or partners that are going down the cancer road.If anyone can give me some advice or help on this would be greatly appreicated.
Sorry I have been a little absorbed lately and haven't been back to do my bit. To all those who have had the courage to contribute I acknowledge you! Your stories are rich in emotion and I can hear the pain that this terrible disease has inflicted not just on those you love but on you also.
I do feel much like samoua but my wife has been a low profile cancer sufferer and she came from gynocological cancer to skin, breast and bone so quite a few years have have spent as a carer. I think people underestimate the role of carers and indeed we cases even alienated. To me cancers are cancers no matter where they first started they bad news and affect everyone in a family situation cancers change your life and I was surprised of this when someone told me a few years back that she was surprised we continue together and not divorced.
