Please pray for my wife

My beautiful wife of 28 years is lying next to me right now at Stanford medical center dying of Adrenal cancer. She is only 53 years old with four beautiful children. We joined DVC about 5 years ago because we love Disney so much and would make 3-5 trips a year to Disneyland. It was like our second home away from home. Now I don't now what to do because it will never be the same without my beloved Gayle. I've learned what a hidious disease Cancer can be and I pray for all you and your families that are dealing with it.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

I am so sorry. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Is there nothing the doctors can do? Can they remove the adrenal glands? Chemo? Cryoablation?

My DH had adrenocortical carcinoma 5 years ago, but the doctors thought it was kidney cancer. They went in and removed his kidney and adrenal gland.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

After we lost our mother to ovarian cancer , we continued to return to places we had gone with her and remembered how much fun she/we had then. Hoping in future you will be able to do the same if your wife Gayle cannot be with you.

I am so sorry that you and your wife (and children) are going through this. I lost my husband of 34 years to pancreatic cancer four years ago, so I really do understand what you are going through. Cancer is pure evil. I hate it.

I will keep you all in my prayers at this difficult time.
