For all of you that have become apart of my journey and my upcoming book I just wanted to give you an update:
As some of you know my husband Vince was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer on December 28, 2010.
Since, then he has undergone 2 major surgeries. We now have to travel back and forth to Saint John hospital every day, (2 hours commute return) where he has to undergo 28 treatments of radiation therapy daily. The type of cancer that he has is an aggressive type and I have been so amazed by his strength, he is a real trooper and he is staying as strong as possible. Fighting this fight is one of the toughest things that he has ever had to do but he always has a smile on his face no matter what. His courage, strength and his determination inspire me and he gives me strength as we fight this fight together. Vince started his radiation and chemotherapy treatments on April 5, 2011 and he will be done the first part of his journey on May 17, 2011. He will continue to fight this fight but not alone for family and friends have been right by his side. We want to thank you for all the love and prayers that you guys have been sending. His path is now in Gods hands and as we say here in the Comeau house. “NEVER GIVE UP!”
I also want to thank everyone for all your patience in the wait for my upcoming book. With the news of my husband being diagnosed with cancer, even though my book was nearing completion I put everything on PAUSE! My life’s priorities come first like family and I was taking care of my husband as he was undergoing his surgeries and now undergoing his treatments. Your continued patience and your understanding on this project that I have been working so hard to get ready and share with the world has been so amazing!!
In closing I would like to say a Big Thank You to my video team, Jillian Acreman, Matthew Carr, Buhthivy Nou, Jennifer Marie Chiasson and my publicist Jim Lavoie. You all have touched my life and my heart in a huge way! I am so thankful for having you become apart of my Journey and creating the videos on my you tube channel, amazing work everyone and I am truly honored and overwhelmed to be working with such an amazing and talented group. I feel like I am on top of the world with you guys!! You have not only touched my life but you have changed it.”
