A Mother's Secret

On June 4, 2013 our world as we know it began crashing around us... My husband of 35 years sprang upon me the disturbing news that he was leaving us for a 22 year old college student. No warnings - A surprise to everyone who knew us as a couple - as a family - as a team... And then - in an instant I became ill... stress - maybe.... shock - possibly.... heartbroken - most definitely...
Only to learn following numerous tests that these were not symptoms of abandonment... they were actual symptoms of an illness too grim to even begin to fathom... Last week marked a full year of diagnosis for me - my fate sealed - and I have not yet broken the news to my children... Now - I have begun selling belongings to pay for medical bills... and my children are beginning to ask questions...
The truth is - by not admitting any of this to them - it protects us from becoming real... If I keep it inside - some deep down, smoldering hope is praying that tomorrow I wake up from the perpetual nightmare I have been having... I am a very proud person... This request for prayers and financial aid is a desperate final resort...
I refuse to leave my children abandoned by their father - their mother taken from them - and drowning in medical debt in order to aimlessly stall a silent killer that ultimately would conquer in the end regardless... I am at your mercy to save me from leaving them in financial ruin.... God Bless you for your selfless gift of love....
