When Chad received his terminal diagnosis on June 29, 2010, we made the decision – together – to share everything about the next several months.
Would it be hard?
But we both agreed that either we share everything, or we share nothing.
There was no “safe” area – everything was available to everyone, in hopes that we would help someone going through a similar situation.
And we are helping others. I have had many emails in the last few weeks from strangers across the world who have stumbled across our journey while searching for details on brain cancer.
I am glad Chad’s story is helping.
Yet, I am sorry for each of you find us because you are facing similar difficulties.
Chad wanted me to share the most recent MRI images shortly after we received them.
But I just couldn’t.
We were busy with the Ultimate Summer.
We were having too much fun for me to stare at a bunch of black and white images, deciphering notes I had hastily written on the back of a postcard torn out of a magazine from the hospital clinic’s waiting room.
I put it off for as long as possible.
But now. I am ready.
I have added a page to the top of the blog – appropriately titled “IT“.
I want people to see it, if they wish.
But I didn’t want anyone to feel as if I was pushing it on them — so, you have to click.
And if you don’t want to, please don’t.
Thank you all, for your support and words of encouragement.
