Only weeks after Amanda revealed amazing news that she is pregnant with baby number three, her husband U.
S. Marine Jason Shipmon was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
It was in 2004 when Jason met Amanda. They tied the knot six weeks after their engagement as Jason would have to leave for his deployment with the Marines.
For the next ten years, they had to live apart. Jason survived his battles in Afghanistan and Iraq, but unfortunately, he lost against cancer.
When he was diagnosed with the condition, all of them were shattered. But the bad news didn’t stop them from fighting for his life.
Jason went through rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, and he managed to live past his prognosis.
During an interview with Casper Star Tribune, Amanda shared their hopes increased when they passed that 5-year mark. They hoped that the tumor won’t return. “But we always knew that the odds of it coming back were very high.”
Unfortunately, Jason’s brain tumor came back and it was a battle he knew he wouldn’t win.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. – 2 Timothy 4:7.”
Amanda shared this Bible verse with the heartbreaking news of her husband’s death.
“Last night my sweet husband, the love of my life left this earth to go home. He fought so hard for so long for me and our precious boys… My heart is broken, I feel lost,” she wrote.
“I look in the faces of our boys and my heart breaks even more, but I feel a little less lost. They are my why. They will give me a strength to carry on…”
Jason was only 37 when he passed away. Amanda added: “A true love story never ends. Truer words could not be spoken. We wrote a beautiful love story.
“He made me happier than I even knew I could be and the gift of his love is the greatest gift I have ever known. It will continue to comfort me and carry me on. My boys will always have the gift of waking each morning having called this man “daddy” and knowing their dad was a hero in so many ways but especially to us…”
