Hero Story: My Husband
By Barbara Chastain
In October, 2009, my husband (the love of my life, my inspiration, my best friend for fifteen years) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was a big man and was a fighter and fought till the end. As I read your book about your husband, it was like reading about my husband. Unfortunately, Jim's was in stage 4 and had already gone to his liver. He went through two different rounds of chemo, but it had progress to far. So he lost the battle on May 16, 2010. But I can't really said he lost, I think we both won, because we got to spend every day for fifteen years together and God was good to us. The last few months we got to say everything we needed to say and got to realize how precious life is. God gave him to me for those years and I feel so blessed. Every day is a struggle and some days I don't know what to do without him, but I can hear him saying "you need to get on with it".
