How to Fight Cancer as a Family – with Gene Villeneuve

This post may contain affiliate links or links from our sponsors where I earn a commission, direct payment or products. Opinions shared are for entertainment purposes only and should not be considered as professional advice.

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1 million people in the United States get cancer each year.  Globally, that number rises to around 15 million people.

As sad as those statistics are, they are just that … only statistics.  Until cancer affects you, your family or someone close to you, you don’t realize the seriousness of the disease.  At least that was the case with me.

One of our close family members was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  She is a young mother of four, a wife, a daughter, an aunt, a cousin and a friend to so many.  Because she is a light in so many people’s lives, her struggle to fight this disease has become her family’s struggle.

She continues to make huge progress every day.  We’re hopeful that her strength, determination and drive to rid herself of this disease will make her cancer-free very soon.

9 Things to Consider While Supporting Your Spouse Fighting Cancer

A short while ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to babysit this family member’s twin baby girls.  That very same night, I came across an article by Gene Villeneuve whose wife is currently fighting breast cancer as well.  The article is entitled “My Wife is My Hero!  9 Things to Consider While Supporting Your Spouse Fighting Cancer”.  

Coincidence?  Maybe. 

Either way, I enjoyed the article and Gene’s message given that our family member was experiencing the same difficult struggle with breast cancer.  

On the show today, Gene and I chat about his family’s current situation and how they are fighting cancer together.  

We review Gene’s “9 Things to Consider” article that has become quite popular online and is helping others cope with cancer in their family.
