Amy Krouse Rosenthal was hospitalized in 2015 with severe abdominal pain. The surprising diagnosis: ovarian cancer in the terminal stage. It soon became clear that the mother of three had only a few months left to live.

At this time, Amy was married to her husband Jason for 26 years. Her biggest fear was that her beloved husband could not or would not find another woman after her death. So the author began to talk about her shared love story for an article in The New York Times . But that was not all: She also created a heartbreaking dating profile for Jason. ” You may want to marry my husband, ” is the first sentence of Amy’s extraordinary contact ad.

“He is 1.78 meters tall, weighs 73 pounds, has gray mottled hair and hazel eyes. He dresses elegantly. Our adult sons, Justin and Miles, often borrow their clothes from him. Those who know him, or just accidentally look down the gap between suit and shoes, will find he has a thing for fancy socks (…)  Not only does he like listening to music, he loves to travel and surprised his partner happy. All these qualities make him the loveliest person on earth.

(…) I want more time with Jason. I want more time with my children. But that will not happen. I probably have only a few days left as a person on this planet. So why am I doing this? The most sincere and greatest gift I can hope for is that the right person will read this, find Jason and start a new love story. “

Amy’s story has been shared countless times. We wish the family and friends of this wonderful woman a lot of strength and love to survive this difficult time in the best possible way.
