Written by Scott DeCanto

Two weeks to the moment since we lost our MaryAnne DiCanto. The pain remains agonizing and fresh, as if it just happened. I wish I had a better answer to the question of how I’m doing. I wish I could soldier-up and suck it up. I can with all other pain, this pain can’t be ignored or worked around. Literally half the married world has or will lose their loved one and the surviving spouse manages to deal with it somehow. I’m struggling and can’t see a world without my wife. Time, I’m told, will help. I want to believe that and I also know that time takes time. In the interim, I just breathe.

About Scott & MaryAnne: MaryAnne was originally diagnosed with Stage 2 B in July 2003 at the age of 46. She was later diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer in January 2013. MaryAnne always said that the hardest part about her was the effect of her impending death on husband Scott and her daughter. Scott and their family lost MaryAnne in May 2017. Since then, he has been sharing his love for MaryAnne and the effect her loss has had on him on Facebook. We are honored to share in their life and story in this tribute page, Life Beyond Breast Cancer.
