Hi everyone,

my name is Ben. Last week my 32 year old wife had a fall and broke her femur. The doctors had a lot of concerns about how easily the bone broke and did a CT scan. They found a mass in her breast and also confirmed cancer in her hip/leg.

I’m just really scared and sad right now. I love my wife so much and hate to see her in pain (broken femur was really difficult). We have a one year old at home and I’m just really struggling. I joined up to try and find some supper amongst people going through similar things.
