Bill Telle lost his wife to cancer about five years ago.

As a member of Gilda’s Club, Telle says he “can’t imagine what it would have been like without the help and support” that he and his wife had throughout her battle.

Since losing his wife, Telle has written a series of poems that help illustrate the journey that a patient and loved ones go through during the fight against cancer.
