Beverly from Alaska

Your flyer lifted my spirits when I opened and saw that November is for caregivers. For the past 2 years my husband has battled for his life with tongue cancer. He had never smoked or chewed tobacco products. Life is not fair but he is still with us after many ups and downs. This year I have had a stroke and I am still recovering when I am supposed to be the caregiver for my husband. He has to do nearly everything. He tries but it is too much for him. For friends, family, and people who care, we all work together to survive.
