Jason and I met in the summer of 2010. Just by looking at him you would never believe that he was sick.Now,I would be lying if I said I never had secondthoughts about dating someone, especially when he told me that one doctor had given him just 3- 5 years left to live.I’ll never forget I was talking to a dear friend of ours asking her opinion. I’ll never forget what she said. She said “ Shannon you cant live your life being afraid, if you like him..go for it!” Well of course I did,“go for it”, and I’m so glad I did.
Our relationship for the first 8 months was VERY normal,Other than going to doctors appointments every few months . He still was very active with hunting, fishing, bicycling, walking running, football, etc. He had even gone back to work. I saw a different man when he went back to work. He was so happy..his spirit was lighter.
