"You need to wash your hair" Stacey would say, she would look at Jack and throw insults at him, Jack was younger than Stacey and took a lot of the abuse of her, eventually after seeing each other more and more, Stacey stopped yelling abuse at Jack and befriended him.
  On a weekend they would get drunk together with them and there friends, which always led to a kiss before they fell asleep, this happend serveral times before Stacey asked Jack via a text if she could sleep at his house.
  After that Jack and Stacey were inseparable. Jack and his mother spent Christmas at Staceys mum house, they fell deep for each other. They made plans to get their own place and then have children, but before children they wanted to travel parts of the world together.
Then Jack fell Ill, he lost his vision and he was having major headaches, Stacey had moved in with Jack and his mother by the point and had been living with him for 2 years, they never even argued properly.
  Jack was taken to hospital and had to have an MRI because they couldnt find they key problem, the next day Stacey was told that her amazing boyfriend has 2 tumours in his brain and that he would need an emergency operation to de-bulk the tumor.
  Stacey was disraught, she couldn't spend the night with him while he stayed in after his operation, but it's all she wanted to do, they was testing to see if it was cancer, she thought she was going to loose him so she didnt want to spend any night apart from him.
  Stacey was told that the tumours in his brain is cancer and that he would need further treatment but that she could stay with him while he had to under go his chemotherapy, Stacey stayed with Jack and watched him, loose his hair, be constantly sick, loose his appeiete, have blood transfusions, she held his hand through it all.
After all his chemotherapy treatment it wasn't finished there, he had to have another operation to de-bulk the tumour again as the chemothreapy killed the cancer but not one of the tumours which was the biggest, after his operation Jack fell started to have a life threating seizure were vomit was drainging into his lungs, Stacey was told that he also could be blind.
Stacey went home that night leaving Jack in hospital for the 2 time on his 2nd big operation, she cried herself to sleep. She just felt bad that when Jack wakes up hes going to have no vision, he loves his bikes and all things electrical, this would kill him.
Jack woke up, he wasn't blind just partially sighted, but atleast he still could see a little they all thought, Jack got really agressive after this operation due to a bad reaction to the new seizure pills he was put on, for 2 week Stacey had to take abuse and agressive behaviour off him, but he soon changed after they changed the medication.
  Stacey went to all his appointments with him and went to the 6 weeks radiothreapy, were they would travel to the hospital everyday Mon-Friday for 6 weeks to receive his treatment.
  Jack is still on the mend and Stacey is still supporting Jack, they don't recieve the results until November for the next results of his treatment, they have to wait for the swelling to go down.
