Married 31 years, Rich and Jean Wise have each had the experience of being both cancer patient and caregiver at home.
“Our marriage vows are, in sickness and in health, so we were there for each other, through it all,” says Jean. Reflecting on a marriage made stronger through experience with cancer they agree, “We just appreciate the little things we do for each other.”
The positive outcome Rich had from his prostate cancer treatment gave Jean optimism when she was first diagnosed with anal cancer and facing treatment. “I was confident about the treatment and the staff,” she says.
“We were very fortunate to be able to have our treatment here, close to home.”
