A field guide for men who are supporting their wife or significant other in becoming free of cancer. Especially when they are hit by a stroke in mid-treatment. I outline the process and experiences, and offer tips and hints for others. My dear wife, Meagan, died from Stage 4 melanoma cancer.

Ironic that the good news is she can start the poison today. Her blood counts were normal. And typically, her first statement after Kaplan said she'd start chemo today was, "oh, my hair..". Yes, she will lose her hair.
She gets the Abraxane once a week for the next three weeks, then takes one week off. Will continue until further notice.
