@lynalexa, how distressing that the cancer has returned, I am so sorry that this difficult part of the journey continues.
Sending positive thoughts of strength and support.

In the meantime could you share a few more details about your husband? When was he diagnosed? Moving forward, what are his treatment options?
I sincerely wish you and your husband all success, and hope to hear from you soon.
