Pink Ribbon

They said time would ease the pain
Every day I still feel the same
I wake every morning reaching for you
My pillow soaked with my tears like the morning dew

We were so sure this was something we could beat
Knowing it would be no small feat
The ribbons of pink now mean much more
Just never thought this would come knocking on our door

We fought for more time together
Thinking every day you were getting better
Every day rain or shine seemed to be lined with gold
We still talked of our future plans of growing old

We heard of so many that had survived this
I still remember our last kiss
We thought we could win for sure
Now for others I can only hope for a cure.

Hi, my wife was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer on 06/24/2014. That also happens to be our birthday, we were born the same day, same year, We met at age 15. She passed away on 07/15/2015. We had just turned 44 years old. I'm lost without her. We have twin boys that are 24 years old and a 16 year old son. I guess we were naive when we thought she was getting better, but then it spread to her brain. 3 months later she was gone. I love you and miss you Maribeth.

I lost my beautiful wife Mary to ovarian cancer July 7th. After waiting our whole lives to find the right person we met late in life. The day before I planned to propose, Mary's 41st birthday, we got the diagnosis. Surgery, chemo and we were married 10 months after the diagnosis. However 2 more battles with cancer- more surgeries with radiation and chemo, and after only 4 1/2 years of marriage I'm left with only memories, and an empty void, and sadness because I know Mary kept fighting on because she loved me as much as I loved her.

February 1, 2014 my beautiful wife had just turned 36 years old. We went out to celebrate and had a wonderful time the next morning she wasn't feeling very well. We thought it was from the night before or she got a stomach bug the pain was so intense and after a couple of weeks we seek help. February the 28th my darling wife was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer. We got her to what we thought was the best Cancer Hospital in the world MD Anderson on Friday March 14th I kiss my wife told her I love her as they were wheeling her into surgery she smiled and said I'll see you in 2 hours but that was not meant to be. She died Monday March 17th 2014 due to complications from the surgery. Leaving behind me and our 8 year old son after 13 years together I'm totally lost with out you sweetheart and I miss and love you so very much.
Your broken hearted husband Chuck

Last summer, my wife Heather started having stomach problems. We thought that she might have a gluten intolerance, but we found out that it was being caused by a fibroma. During surgery, they discovered uterine cancer.
We took her to the best cancer hospitals in the world - M.D. Anderson and Sloan Kettering - but she died eight months later. She was 31 years old.
I have been lost since she left. We were together for 14 years, and we have a beautiful six-year old son.
I would give every earthly possession I own and work the rest of my days in a coal mine to see her again for an hour.
Honey I will take care of our boy and love you until the end.

I lost my fiancé June 2011 to breast cancer, she was only 40. Even after two and a half years there's not a minute that goes by that she's not on my mind or in my thoughts. She was and always will be the love of my life and my best friend, we only had 1 year 10 months and 13 days together but what an honor it was to be in love with her. I miss you so much M.J. Thanks Kevin

Life is Devastating.
Thank you for your words Kevin. They help more than I can say.
