Wife diagnosed with cancer on day her husband dies

(PIONEER PRESS) — Before John Sylvester lost his battle to ALS, his young sons used to ask, “Why can’t the doctors help daddy?”

Now, as Sylvester’s wife prepares to sit down with her 5- and 6-year-old sons, and tell them she was just diagnosed with cancer, she wants to say to them, “I am sick, but the doctors can help. They couldn’t help daddy, but they can help me.”

Tessie Sylvester, 36, hopes that message gives her sons some comfort.

It was June 16, the day that 44-year-old John Sylvester died, that Tessie found out about her diagnosis.
