What my husband’s cancer taught me

It has been about a year since my husband was diagnosed with cancer. We are still in the deep battle and the doctor is running out of solutions.

What my husband’s cancer taught me

Cancer is the awakening point for everybody. And below are what my husband’s cancer taught me.

What my husband’s cancer taught me

1. Cancer is not just a deadly life crash, it is also an eye opening opportunity.

Don’t just focus on the sad process, think about the new changes it has brought to us, and to the people we love. Because my husband can’t eat any meat, it forces us to become vegetarian. I was surprised to notice that I am losing weight without trying. And our family members are eating more healthy too. Also, everybody is keeping up with regular checkups with their doctors.

2. Crying is not because you are too weak, it is because you have been brave too long.

My harsh childhood and tough early years made me a tough woman, which means I have trouble to cry. Because I believe crying is the sign of weakness. But now I know, every few weeks, I need to cry, sometimes even in public, to let the stress out so I can move on.

3. Share your story

I tried to keep this cancer news secret for a long time. Until 3 months ago I finally decided to let others outside the family know. My husband said it may help others who are in the same or similar situation. We were surprised to realize, it is not just for helping others, somehow it helped us too. It feels so much easier when everybody in our life knows what we are facing and how they can help.

4. Spend time together and life will still be there.

I finally made my mind to take a short term leave from my job so I can focus on taking care of my husband. And yes, if I am not sure if we will have a tomorrow, literally, I don’t want to miss every minute we can be together today. Job, career, dream, they all can wait and will be there in the future, but at this moment, nothing is more important than my man. So, as of this week, I decided to only post 2 times per week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. If I have to cut down on those later, I will do that too. But I will plan to keep Instagram going so make sure to follow me and catch up with what is happening. Thanks so much for all your constant support and understanding. It means so much to me and my family!

    1. You are very right! My school is the best place to work and I am very grateful with all the help and support that I got from them. Thank you so much for all the kind words and support from you constantly as well! Really appreciate it!

  1. Andrea

    Grace, you are an inspiration. You are a reminder that it is never too late to follow a dream and if you are willing to put in the hard work it can pay off. There have been many moments I find myself asking, “What would Grace wear?” I love seeing the outfits you put together. Even more impressive is the love that is evident between you and your husband. The compassion and support you provide each other is amazing. Spending time with him is exactly where your focus should be. Your followers and colleagues may miss your presence, but we understand.

    1. We are at the ER right now and your “What would grace wear” just made us both laugh. Thank you so much for letting me know and I miss you guys and my kids very much. But, just like you said, my man is the center of my world now and I am happy to spend time with him no matter where it is.

  2. Oh my gosh Grace, I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I can’t imagine how difficult going through something like this is. I have had many friends who have though and they say the same thing about the experience – they awoke. It puts everyting in perspective very quickly. I wish for your husband a speedy recover and he is very lucky to have you. Please take care of yourself.


  3. Oh honey … I wish I could reach through the computer and just give you a huge hug. You are so beautiful inside and out. Yes, spend every minute with your guy, but also don’t feel guilty if you need to sink into blogworld for an occasional escape. I started my blog during my mom’s tough battle with ovarian cancer. It felt like an amazing gift of distraction. Yesterday was the 3 year anniversary of her death. I always feel like my blog was somehow her parting gift to me.

My husband has told me many times to not giving up on blogging. He said he really enjoyed the journey of this blogging adventure and he hopes I can continue. Thanks again for sharing this with me and I really appreciate it!
