Nancy: My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Doug was always an inspiration to my and my husband Tom. Please come back to this site as it will help you heal and you can continue to advise others that continue to fight this terrible cancer. I know that one day I too will be in your position when Tom’s body can no longer go on and I have no idea on how it will impact me but I know that it will be awful.
Hugs to you and yours. Doug is now at peace and up there with all the others who fought this battle – they are now looking after him.
On Wednesday September 14, 2011 I lost the love of my life and best friend. Doug passed away peacefully and painlessly at home with myself and his 3 children at his side. We had just finished some family time with my son Devin playing guitar and my daughters, Shannon and Tamia plus myself lying in bed with him singing and reminiscing. If a death could be perfect it was. My heart breaks, and my children’s hearts break but we will get through. When Doug first got diagnosed in Ocober 2010 I told him I would love him better. He is better. No more pain and suffering, he is free once again.
Today has been a whirlwind and my mind is spinning but I will return to the board soon and will continue the fight against cholangiocarcinoma until we all win. Thank you all for your support over the last number of months. Keep on fighting. We are winning small victories and we will eventually win the war. Hugs. Nancy
