My husband and his childhood best friend from a small town both had wives that in their 20s with small children had cancer. I don't believe this was coincidence. I believe God allowed these two a bond early on because of what they would face. Daniel and Casey have showed love, grace, perseverance like no other husband and fathers I have ever seen. They have taken on roles of mother and father, care takers etc. Casey's wife passed away at the age of 28 this past December. He is heartbroken. He started dating her at the age of 15. For the sake of their daughter, he has dusted himself off and through daily pain, he loves their daughter and gives unconditionally for her. My husband still has me here, but in some ways, I think it would be easier if he didn't. My chemothereapy damaged my nervous system and has left me with daily effects. He cares for me and our two small children with grace and love like I didn't know exsisted. I think a fathers/husbands love like these should be showcased. I think these two have so much to teach by example to a world where fatherhood is suffering. My husband has never once said one bad thing about having to bear this load. He says that he wouldn't want anyone else carrying for me. He says this is our load to carry and not just mine. I want to give him more than I have. I want to give other families the opportunity to flourish from the acts of love that pour from my husband and his friend.
