Some Partners and Cancer Sufferers

What is wrong with some guys? I met with three women with cancer in the past two weeks, who were diagnosed with nasty cancer – and their partners have walked out on them (after diagnosis). This is when these women need the maximum amount of support. This is when their world is falling apart… more of it falls apart 🙁
Some of these stories are so sad, that it drives us to despair.
This is supposedly delinked from the medical world, but it is absolutely interlinked with our care. If a patient is falling to bits in her/his mind, how can they deal with everything else?
The nurses in the Unit are just amazing and have adopted these women as part of our larger family. All we can do is support them through this incredibly difficult time, the best we can.
