Personal message

Today I come as a loving wife for my 

Husband 
 
About just under 2 months ago 
 
My husband Lourens was diagnosed with
Bladder cancer
 
He is only 37 years old, a very fun happy person to be around. Can make anyone laugh and have a good time
 
Its been a very stressful experience 
 
Firstly I stay in a small town and we have to travel far to the urologist 
 
Its about 2.5 hours drive there, and then 
2.5 hours back home again
 
If my husband have to stay over in hospital 
I have to book a place to sleep
 
They give him a catheter each time they cut 
And burn the affected area. Then he has to wait till the medication has gone through till
The morning, then we can leave
 
Being off work so much,has affected 
his salary alot
 
He is the main bread winner
 
We have 3 daughters 9, 16 and 18. This has made it financially hard to make sure
They also are ok. School. Food. Providing 
For them
 
The stress of the cancer and treatment is 
Enough
 
Having stress of money, petrol, hotal costs
Toll fees, is really taking its toll
 
If I can take that stress away. It will make the recovery more bearable
 
The treatment is 9 months course. Will have to go once a week for 6 weeks to the doctor. Then go for the camera again to see if it is working 
 
If it is working. Then another 6 weeks treatment and 6 weeks off. Till 9 months is over
 
If not. Then a part of his bladder will have to be removed, worse case scenario 
 
Given through a catether
 
Side affects is flu like symptoms and fever
 
If he gets a fever, he has to be admitted to
Hospital again, for days to break it
 
Stress is driving myself crazy. And mentally ,I cant focus. This has affected me emotionally and physically 
 
This would be a huge blessing if i can at 
Least reach 50% of my target
