A woman in Chicago with terminal cancer published an essay in The New York Times this weeknd in hopes of finding her spouse a new partner after she passes. In her essay, Amy Krouse Rosenthal writes, “I have never been on Tinder, Bumble or eHarmony, but I’m going to create a general profile for Jason right here, based on my experience of coexisting in the same house with him for, like, 9,490 days.” Rosenthal goes on to describe her hubby as “a sharp dresser,” “uncannily handy” and “a wonderful father” who “loves listening to live music." She adds, “If you’re looking for a dreamy, let’s-go-for-it travel companion, Jason is your man.” Rosenthal was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September 2015.
What incredible strength she has on so many levels. It made me think about what I would want for my partner and what I would look for in a partner for him. Tough to think about.
