Thank you for your reply. Of course it’s quite frustrating and I know I need to accept that. I am sure something did cause that rare cancer that lowered the immune system.
Perhaps a frustration with retirement was a factor as he was renowned in his professional work.He would never show negativity; always took the high road.
Hopefully one day there’ll be a cure.
So sorry to hear about your husband's experience. He did, indeed, have a rare type of cancer and one that is not usually found in the bladder.
Many cancers happen when a cell just goes "haywire." It most likely had nothing to do with his lifestyle or diet. Just like an older car will have things fail, as our bodies age there are more and more things that just don't work right any more. While there are things that have been indicated as a cause of cancer (smoking being one) there are many many (in fact most) cancers where a cause/effect has never been found.

My husband was diagnosed with a rare
He was treated at MDA however we were told it was terminal. I thought
We’d beat it after all he never smoked
Nor ate red meat and exercised daily
Well exactly a year later he passed away. It’s not been a year and it’s just awful . I’ve been trying to understand how he got this. I only know the prognosis is poor.
If anyone has information on this very rare cancer,I’d be quite interested.
