Cora and Terry

Terry Kreachbaum

Name: Terry Kreachbaum
Age: 73

Cares for: Cora Kreachbaum, Wife.
Your Turn to Care Episode: "Heal"

His Story: Terry knew the first time he saw Cora that he would marry her and he's never regretted his choice. Terry, too, has been diagnosed with cancer. He has prostate cancer that's currently in check. Cora's decision to receive palliative care has helped him enormously as well. Cora is less anxious which means he worries less about her. Terry says that what gets him through each day is Cora. In spite of what they're going through, he wouldn't change a thing.

Reflections: "Even though it might be 30 or 60 days long, we're gonna make it all the way to the end. And that was the way we felt in front of the minister 45 years ago. Taking care of somebody you love, you don't look at it as a burden. You don't measure it that way. I don't. It's not a condition of love."
