This is the first in a series of Cancer Q&A’s we are doing at Resolute. We’d like to sincerely thank Will for sharing his experience with us.Will sadly lost his wife Caroline to Cancer but has bravely given us a very honest account of his experience of having a loved one with Cancer.
It was an emotional read for me as someone who knows Will and I’m sure it will be a humbling and perspective-shifting read for anyone with a partner they can’t imagine life without.
Q: WHEN AND HOW DID CANCER FIRST BECOME A PART OF YOUR LIFE?
A: In January 2015 my girlfriend Caroline (now wife) was diagnosed with cervical cancer.
Q: WHAT TREATMENT DID YOUR LOVED ONE HAVE?
A: Caroline went through a large operation to remove a mass in February 2015 , then had a recurrence a few months later. She then went through two cycles of chemotherapy which were unsuccessful, then the maximum amount of radiotherapy which also wasn’t majorly effective. She then had a second operation to remove the mass in October 2015 which sadly was also unsuccessful. She passed away in December 2015.
Q: WHAT WOULD YOUR ADVICE BE TO SOMEONE WITH A LOVED ONE THAT HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER?
A: The best advice I could give to someone with a loved one that has been diagnosed with cancer would be…just be there. Be there whenever possible. The hospital meetings, the treatment, the tears and the pain. As in between those difficult moments there is life. There are memories, laughter, joy and these are the most important moments. My proudest achievement in my life has been the fact that I was with Caroline from the very beginning, to her very last breath, and in those 11 months we shared more than a lifetime of love.
