Doing Cancer with David. My husband and best friend was diagnosed with stage 4 mestatic lung cancer September 13,2016.
To watch a man who went to work whether or not he was sick. A man who tried his best to do his best and it would break his heart when he fell short. The day he received his diagnosis crushed him. He cried and continued to apologize. As a wife it was time to be his protector, his strength and his frontline. 
Dave's journey during this battle has brought him to the hospital for radiation for his hips and brain. Which took a toll on his short term memory. That frustrates him greatly. At times he forgets about appointments, or who he is seeing, and even a conversation.  This isn't all the time but it is more now than it was in September. Once radiation was finished Dave started chemotherapy and is currently still receiving treatments. 
In between hospital visits (depending on the week it can be up to 15 or more)I have been reaching out to local agencies for help. Depending on the agency was the answer. If you divorce him, leave him, you receive too much money on temporary disability. Then the day came when we received 19.00 a month for food. Now, his temporary disability has been exhausted. Through God's grace we have not gone hungry. It was hard to watch Dave witness this struggle.February came and I had to make a choice again. Do I leave my husband to return to work or do I continue to walk next to him through this journey. So I willingly stepped away in order to do God's will. 
We are now at a point were we are picking and choosing, do we pay rent and lose transportation? Do we pay electric or buy food.? Our struggle is real , what we are facing is real.

Today he was supposed to receive treatment, but he could not. His counts were down and he dropped 6 lbs., great we were served with a 5 day or quit. Heavy is the heart.

It's stress time. Landlord wasted no time. Got served to be in court next Friday.  A high risk place for a person with a compromised immune system. Totally sad that it's all about money. I  pray we get time to get in somewhere. My heart is breaking as he shouldn't have to worry about this.

We have encountered another bump in the road. He has been having mini strokes for a month or so and now we are being evicted. Not really sure what else to do. We can't afford to pay regular rents and low income rentals are at least a 2 year wait.
