DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - 'In sickness and in health' is put into action when a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer.
We're asking husbands what they've learned while supporting their wives as they battle the disease.
"She's my best friend and the thought never even crosses that she's not going to be here, that thought never even comes to my mind."
Robert and Robbin Jones have been married for 13 years, but have known each other since grade school.
Just a few weeks ago, Robbin's breast cancer came back after 14 years.
Robert says his role is to act as a second set of ears during doctor's appointments and keep the mood up and a calm environment for Robbin to heal.
"No matter what the situation is, discussion is or what the prognosis or diagnosis is, I keep everything positive and try to keep the noise level down, so we don't get too crazy about it," said Robert Jones.
"it's just like, we're just doing what we have to do and going forward, side by side," said Robbin Jones.
Amy McKenna is a breast cancer coordinator at Miami Valley Hospital and helps couples cope with a diagnosis.
Robbin and Robert are doing exactly what she advises; keep open lines of communication and recognize that your partner may handle stress differently than you.
She says men are fixers and want so badly to make their wives better.
"The most important thing they need to know, and something I don't think they always think about, is that they themselves need support as well, because they're so focused on being the caregiver and what can I do to help the women who is going through treatment, that they also need to take care of themselves and make sure they're surrounded by people who can be there for them, support them and be a sounding board," said Amy McKenna, Miami Valley Hospital.
She encourages men to keep doing the things that help them de-stress - like basketball or golf.
Robert will be right by Robbin's side during her two remaining rounds of chemotherapy.
