The journey I have had to take with my husband over the past few years has been incredibly instructive and formative. Together, we had to discover the different steps to take with specialists as we learned to deal with my husband’s disease. Our experiences and discoveries all led to the same conclusion: that prevention was key.
It’s prevention that saves and prolongs lives — that ‘s the most important lesson we’ve learned. The two of us also learned that we could get far more accomplished together than was possible for my husband on his own. You have to lend a hand, share what you learn, and enable others to benefit in order to create a stronger community better equipped to fight disease. We are all part of the same community, the human race, and we must help each other if we are to strengthen and prolong our lives.
Here’s wishing you all a good life!
