Walter Albayero



My wife was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and we have 5 children. We started to get treatment at St. Joseph and we felt that there were just medicating her and not really paying too much attention to her.

She’s 30 years old she’s really young. So we moved to Uci and hoping that she will get the best treatment for her. We’ve been married for 14 years now. And just to think that my wife is going through this and I cant help her it tears me up; I have to stay strong for her and our 5 children that depend on us.

Its just tough trying to be the strong one here. Nobody has asked me, “Hey, Walter how are you dealing with this?” and I have to continue to work and pay the bills and try to enjoy my day. There’s not a moment that I don’t worry about my wife. The main reason that I keep going is my relationship with GOD; I put my trust in him and I know that he will help my wife.

Sometime its really hard to get my wife motivated and being positive. Her cancer is hormone based and the new doctor told her that the medication that St. Joseph gave her can help her survive for about 9 months. They are going to do a PET scan and I’m hoping that it helped her. Based on the new doctor he recommended a stronger medication that will help her live about 2 years. I am just confused how can you give out a time frame!!!

Please pray for my wife Claudia Moreno Albayero. I don’t want to lose my friend , my wife, my everything. We’ve been through a lot and I don’t want to lose my wife. Thank you for reading this. It is the first time that I was able to express myself about how I feel.
