She's been diagnosed with breast cancer. I didn't even think this could happen to her. I saw her in pain and all I could think of was stress and PMS -what an idiot.
They say it's early enough to get it all out, but she's scared and I'm a man, I don't know how I would feel if they had to remove a body part that makes me feel like a man. What can I say to make her feel better?
I told her she'll be beautiful no matter what, that I'll shave my head too, leave the hiking and biking. But she's so sad and scared and I have to be the man, right? I have to stand up and be there for her, so how can I admit I'm terrified too?
I don't know how we'll get through this. Her aunt died of cancer and her mom past away real young. She didn't even know her that much.
I was going to propose on her 30th birthday, now ...I just don't know what to do.
All I can think of, is we really need to make this matter to men too. I wish I had felt up a signal, I could've done something, I don't know.
