I know you were asking for advice from others who have been through this, and I’m sorry I don’t…

but I couldn’t go without telling you how sorry I am. I will keep you in my prayers and I truly hope your Fiance is able to recover without the more aggressive treatments.

sending hugs and love your way.

for the monetary part, it was suggested to us to get wedding insurance.. I haven’t really looked into this much because my fiance’s OH surgery got pushed up a lot sooner than we had expected and he should be recovered by then but it might be something worth looking into for you guys.  maybe someone else out there knows more than I do? 

as far as maybe having to cancel or postpone the wedding and dealing with people in that respect.. your priority is being there for your Fiance and making sure he has all the support that he needs to get through this difficult time and get on his way to being healthy.. if that means “disappointing” people, so be it.. most of the people around you will understand and will want to do anything in their power to help you guys through this.  

oh and btw, if people want to help you.. accept their help!  its so easy to get caught up and think that you need to be the strong one and do everything, take care of everything and be everything to everyone but you can’t and you’ll be well on your way to a nervous breakdown if you try. 

keeping my fingers crossed for you that everything goes well.

I will send up a prayer for you.  The good news is, they are only suggesting radiation.  That means the cancer is not too aggressive yet.  

My grandfather had radiation therapy for prostate cancer a couple years back and he did very well.  

My grandmother is currently undergoing chemo for bone cancer.  She was doing really bad for a while there and is beginning go gain weight and improve.  She was down to like 72 lbs at one point and is now at 92.  I am hoping she can be at our wedding.

My mother is a breast cancer survivor for 1 year this year and got diagnosed with a lymphoma recently.

Dealing with all of these things and trying to plan a wedding is SO difficult.  We set our date further away so that everyone could have extra time to get better and I could graduate.  I honestly just take life day by day.  It’s all you can do.

Praying for strength and health for both you and your FH!!! I am so sorry you are going through this right now, but what better time to make a life-long vow to each other than when you both need each other so much. Best wishes and keep us posted on how he’s doing!

I am really sorry you and your Fiance are going through this. I worked in Oncology and gave chemo for 4 years so really if there are any questions you have at any point please don’t hesitate to ask, or if you just need to talk:) Sending lots of hugs and prayers your way.
