Sept 11, 2010: Fuck Cancer

68 years of marriage doesn't make it any easier to watch your partner deteriorate from cancer and it's treatment. Fuck Cancer!



Here's a lot more pictures, including their wedding photo.

Very touching Bruce.
Mum has her one year X-Ray on the 15th.
Her FC day is on the 17th.
If we're not still talking by then I'll send her a card telling her my love goes into the X-Ray room with her. Because I can't help worrying and I do still care.

Good thoughts from Dwellars would help too.
But only if you're up late on the 14th - her appointment is 09.00 GMT (BST)

Nice picture-story.

Gene seems exceptionally spry for 90,
but at 90 and 89 yrs it is evidence they both chose their parents wisely.

At a Scrap yard I go to (to work on their scales) , there is this Older lady that sits in the window ,dealing with the customers , figuring out Scrap grades , handing out the money , etc ,,,,,,,,
I havent seen her there in a while ,

I saw her the other day , All slumped down on her self , Most of her hair was gone , And she was dressed All in Pink , and you could tell she didnt feel that well
I asked what was up , She Just looked at me , CANCER she said .
we talked , things dont look good , but they cought it Early

I told her about my Mom , her last Fly fishing trip , the good stuff .
She has a son in Italy , some Nice coastal town with Killer Views , Shes All ways wanted to go and just live there for a while , her Son is for it , she just cant go , to much family stuff in Arkansas .
I told her go for it !!!! if Not now WHEN ???!!! if you can Arrange things Right you can be Sick there as well as here .
She Looked up at me with this Glimmer in her eye ,
I Looked around ( this a CHURCH LADY if there ever was one, the higher the hair the closer to god type ) and said ( Quietly ) Fuck cancer !!
She Looked up at me , grinned and said Yeah Fuck cancer !!!!!

Zip, with that mug of yours, you could say fuck cancer to the Queen of England, and she'd give you a high five.
Thanks for making an old lady's day, you done good.

The link says husband was WW1 Bomber Pilot. I don't think so. Even if WWl pilots had been bombers--do the math.

Also, might be a good idea if couples contemplating marrriage got that story and pictures as part of prenuptial counseling--but then you'd have a lot more one parent families, I guess.

Obviously WWI should have been WWII, but it's a wonderful story.

All marriages should be as durable as theirs has proven to be.

Sure they did, The pilot would just reach out and drop it like a hand grenade. Sometimes they dropped bricks, too

Really? I should think that the possibility of 68 happy years, and even the obvious love and companionship when the end appears near, would encourage more marriages. Unless you mean more would be convinced to go for it, only to find out this story isn't common?

Yes, he wasn't born until after WW I.

I just buried one of my best friends this morning, dead at age 52, one week to the day after walking into the ER under his own power with some abdominal distress. It was an inoperable liver tumor.

Fuck cancer.

Can I get a bigger font, here, please?
