Husband and diagnoses

Hello, my husband has been diagnosed with cancer. On December 14 they are going to perform surgery to remove a few tumors to determine if it is Hodgkins or non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I'm so terrified for him. Our daughter is only 2 years old.. He's terrified to tell his parents and alternates between sleeping alot or not sleeping at all.. And on top of all of the (not so normal) stress that comes with this, the doctor visits over the past month have added to 200 dollars which is hurting us with money and him not being able to work when he has to get to an appointment. I completely understand, now, how people can end up losing their houses and cars when they have health problems. i'm so scared.

I'm sorry.  It must be very scary in your shoes right now.  I suggest telling your family so you can get some much needed emotional support.  Best of luck and please update us on the 14th!
