Cancer is a bitch

Hello guys. So, I we have discovered to night what kind of cancer Holly was. It's cancer of the stomach. The doctor has said most likely after the summer, maybe sooner, she will be to weak to move. She I starting kemo but the doctor said their is no guarantee it will be successful.

I used to have a small drinking problem that turned into a huge drinking problem and I was headed for the grave and she saved my life. She put up with my music career and has supported me throughout it all. She even sat down and helped me write songs when I was struggling. I have learned some much from her. I look at everything we have been through. Not once have I ever fought with her. In the 14 years we have been together. Now, I feel lost because I can't save her :'(

I sit her on my bed and she is lying in a hospital bed. I am currently writing a song for her.
In case something happens sooner, can someone help me out with the two songs below.
They are “our” songs. When I used to go out on tour for a few months, she would send me Boston & St. Johns and I would turn the bus around and pick her up and bring her with me.

I met her at the radio station I worked at. She accidently came into the station and was lost and she was the sweetest person. She looked at me and said “Hi, I'm sorry to bother you.” Before I could say anything, she says “Omg, I love Great Big Sea.” and she said down with me and said “Oh, I'm sorry, I'm Holly.”
I was taken by her beauty and how sweet she was and my face turned red and I stuttered my name and “Boston & St. John's,” the song I was playing on the radio. I ended up sitting in the studio all day with her listening to music until 4 in the morning. A lot of coffee. It was one of the best days ever

These songs are layered with guitar and different instruments so if anyone can figure them out, I would love to play them for her.


This was when we met

I am deeply saddened by this news, but remember, where theres life, theres hope. Never give up hope.
I have all of this to look forward to, my dad, his sister and two of his brothers were taken by cancer and his remaining brother has been fighting it for about 15 years. One of my brothers had a brain tumour removed about 10 years ago but he's doing fine now. My dads dad had cancer, he had six brothers and i'm assuming cancer took them aswell, well, apart from Thomas that is, a German shell took him at Paschendaele in 1917!
So yes, cancer IS a bitch

Twiggy, my thoughts are with you and Holly during this difficult time. It sounds like you and Holly have enjoyed a wonderful relationship and that is kind of rare in today's day and age. Keep your chin up and remain strong for her.

Everything I try to write to reply comes across as so corny in these situations.

Words just clang emptily.

Best wishes to you and your lady.

Cancer killed lots of my friends and family.

Words genuinely cannot express how terrible I feel for Holly and you, Chris. Not even the best relationship I've had in my life compares to the one you've described. I'm truly envious, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.

Just be there for her, man. Have a smile on tap, a warm embrace locked and loaded, a tender kiss in your back pocket for when she needs it. Nothing's over until it's over. As Marko said, where there's life, there's hope.

And here's to hoping she kicks that fucking cancer's ass.
