A Connecticut woman with advanced breast cancer married the love of her life at a Connecticut hospital right before Christmas, then passed away 18 hours later.

Can’t figure out why my iPad screen is so bleary all of a sudden...
I’m rigging the noose in the basement. JK
I Know this is a story of Courage and Remarkable Strength, yet it still seems so incredibly depressing.
I’ve known breast cancer patients who died and lung cancer patients who died.
It seems the lung cancer patients look so much smaller and weaker and more sick before death.
I don’t get it.
Why do many (terminal) lung cancer patients look much smaller and weaker near death compared to (terminal) breast cancer patients?
I’m only speculating, but my guess is breast cancer is a more localized condition, albeit a terminal one from time to time.
Lung cancer is automatically going to effect the entire body of that person. The circulation and temperature are not easily maintained throughout the patient’s body any longer.
This one change, lack of strong circulation of oxygen and blood cells will produce visible effects very quickly.
Many such patients cannot eat very well, thus lessening new fuel for the body. The cells may begin to cannibalize from the bone marrow in order to continue other functions.
That makes sense.
Terrible disease. BOTH are terrible diseases.
But it would explain why some of the women I know who passed from breast cancer did not look like they were near death! :(
The lung cancer folks I knew, mostly uncles, it was evident.
He must be an exceptionally fine man.
My wife fought breast cancerfor over 8 years. she lost over70 pounds in the last few months because the cancer movedto her brain.
A friend of mine, who I’ve known since I was about 9 lost his wife of 58 years to breast cancer last week. She had been fighting the battle for over 30 years.
In my eyes, she won. She beat the beast for three decades.
As a Christian, she certainly won
