Cut a long story short, I met the man of my dreams was having the best time together, so much fun, future plans then one day a lump appeared in his neck. We joked it was an allergy to chocolate coz he ate my Easter egg. After tests, x rays and CT scans, things weren't looking good. T-Cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Our dream we where living, ground to a halt. We got engaged, happiest day ever! But the Chemo didn't work, tried another one, that worked for a few months Before stem cell transplant. It was back, doctor said he needs a miracle. SCT happened was so poorly from it, But couldn't win in this awful battle against cancer. Things took a turn for the worse, we planned to get married but couldn't. Not enough time. Things got worse, I didn't let go of his hand for 4long days by his side then... 10 months after diagnosis, he passed away with me and his parents by his side. Why? I'll never know why this happened? One and a half years later, it's still raw, and I still wonder WHY? Too young too soon x
