Experience & Education

Caretaker

Feb 2015 - Dec 2016
Self Employed
Full time caretaker for my husband of 23 years. He already had Lupus and severe COPD when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer that metastasized to the brain. He chose to fight with the strongest treatments available. This led to months of serious care. The treatment collapsed his windpipe and I faced many obstacles keeping his oxygen number up. I carried him on breathing machines, by car to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and to Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. We were on our way to the Mayo Clinic in Michigan when Cleveland Clinic said they could fix him, and they did. Many more months of round the clock care before the cancer took over with a vengeance. He went to be with Jesus Christmas Day 2016.
