Topic: I Miss My Friend, I Miss My Wife

Nancy Jo St.Germain born December 19,1960 passed away on September 28, 2010. She was first diagnosed on April 1st 2010. She never fully accepted her prognosis. She did her best to fight this disease but it was very difficult as she could not eat or drink due to the nausea and vommiting caused by the cancer and chemo. The last three weeks Nancy was with San Diego Hospice and they did an outstanding job. This website was a godsend for Nancy & I. We drew on the information and compassion provided by all the members of this website and for this our family is truly apprecative. Nancy left us all with a broken heart that hopefully time will heal.
I Miss My Friend, I Miss My Wife

Thank you all for making a difficult journey a litlle easier.

I'm so sorry to hear about Nancy.  I remember your story from April and it was obvious how much loved she was.  Hold onto the great memories of your wonderful wife and friend.

My partner Ben was diagnosed in August 2010 with non-resectable stage IV intrahepatic CC with 6-18 months prognosis.   He was 51 at the time - and he is now 55. 

Don't give up!

Tom,

I am sorry for your loss of your wife.  Losing a loved one is never easy, and one that is so loved and so appreciated by her family (like you were of her) can be even harder.  BUT you do have that great love to remember and cherish the rest of your life.  Take comfort in knowing that you gave your all to Nancy and it showed is all that you said on this board.

Take care, and my prayers go with you.
