Their doctors are optimistic
Despite the grim outlook for the couple, there is still hope for the both of them. Both Michael and Annette will be completing chemotherapy, after which doctors anticipate they will be in remission. In the face of such horrible cancer diagnoses, at least there was a silver lining in that there is hope for a successful cure. Michael and Annette cling to the hope that they can recover from this roadblock in their lives and live in happy matrimony ever after.
