Hi, My name is Carole. My boyfriend and I have 3 sons between us. Our eldest son was 17 when he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and was given 5 years to live. He has proven them wrong and is still alive at age 38 and has two young sons. Our second oldest is doing well for himself and is recently engaged. Our youngest son was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer about 2 1/2 years ago and has been given less than a year to live. He and his wife have 3 young children and he is the main income provider so this is scary for all of us. There is no blood relationship between our oldest and youngest sons which makes it even more cruel that this disease has hit us twice. My mother is a survivor of breast cancer, kidney cancer and unfortunately has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This terrible disease is destroying not only my family but my hopes and dreams for my sons and their families. I love all of my sons and my grandchildren and I find it hard to not be able to be of financial assistance to them or even help minding the children for my youngest son and his wife since they live on the other side of the country from me.
