Mrs. Ronin fought through it a few years back. My dad is currently engaged in his own battle on the front lines. A dear friend recently walked her mother through the battle zone as well, making particular use of the Gerson technique, which seemed to work miracles for her.

You, your lovely bride and all those around you will be in my thoughts and prayers. May you have the strength to hold her hand through it all, a smile on your face. May she always see in you the hope for a better tomorrow.

All my best to you and yours, brother.

P.S. Just watched the video you posted. Now, in addition to wanting to be there for you, I imagine the heart of every man who has looked at this thread is tied to your wife. Please thank her for sharing that bit of herself with us all.

Still trying to figure out how to embed this video properly. She hates me now for making her do that... But once I heard her singing in the next room to my trek music as I was blasting an opponent away with phasers, I vowed to record her singing this, hehe. After all these years finally got it!

Someone knows how to embed this so it shows as a pic instead of a link, fix it for me pls. thx! And thanks for the prayers.


What a lovely voice!  Truly, an amazing, brave, talented woman.  Well done getting her to marry you, sir! 

Has she had lessons or training, or is that just pure talent?

Sadly she hasnt done anything with it other than karaoke. Other than HS musical practice, thats raw talent. I'll see if I can get her to sing something else on camera. Mb this is a good way to get her on video for once...You got a request?

Edit: Finally figured out how to copy the url properly. So if you missed it from the 1st page, here it is again.

If she has a favorite, maybe she would grace us with it? When I heard her voice I immediately thought of...
 
ANDREA BOCELLI & KATHERINE JENKINS-I BELIEVE+LYRICS

... this song. With her lovely voice, I think she could handle the soprano part very well. Let's see if we can get Andrea Bocelli to swing by the house to practice with her.

Ronin what a great idea! I think I'm gonna work that. Brilliant idea! I had heard of how Katherine Jenkins was a good singer, but never knew just how good or how good looking. Checked her out on youtube and I'm impressed.

Ok, so update, Berte's chemo regimen starts Wed. Actually tomorrow, cuz she is gonna start taking anti side effect drugs b4 the chemo. Seems these holidays have been dragging along so slowly... we wanted to start chemo weeks ago...

Berte just lopped off all her hair in anticipation of it falling out. She's quite cute with short hair now. And I asked her about doing some more vids... she's open to the idea, so I got my fingers crossed I'll be able to upload another video tonight. ;) She loves the feedback btw., and all your posts. TY for your support. It means a lot.

Please pass the word to your lovely bride that my hair is now roughly 1/8th of an inch in length. Can't do much else, but I can sure paint my wagon the same color.

Warmest regards to you both...

Dang men, what is it with our women folk. I wonder if I should start a support group for men, who have wives with Cancer, as I know the time will come , you will want a place to vent.

Of course Prayers to you also Crim.  I can't believe how many of us have been touched by this Horrible disease.

I went ahead and started a Facebook page for anyone who needs support, or can offer advice having been through cancer.   https://www.facebook.com/groups/357355417614383/  It is a closed group for right now, as I know sometimes It can be difficult to discuss. Please let me know if you wish to be added either here, or you can email me at Stephen.sirgod@gmail.com

Sirgod, I am not sure whether I can be of any help, but I am willing to try. My wife had cancer, but she recovered and is doing fine.

I have never felt so useless and lost in my entire life. Raising three girls on my own scared the hell out of me! Thank God Karen is ok now.

I do have one observation to make. I realized something during that time that I should have known. There are  things you can fix and things you can't. If you lose your job, you can get another job. You can't fix cancer or replace your loved ones.  Remember what's important in life. Work has it place, but it is replaceable. Your family isn't!

Darn good point IndyShark. That is so true. So many things can be put on the back burner while you tackle the important stuff.
