In brief: Possibly

Mutual support is essential in any treatment paradigm. Both partners can help each other and certainly have empathy towards each other during treatment.
Will it be difficult? Maybe. There are many variables that will determine the exact answer. But both should be evaluated by a qualified individual. Your primary care or family doctor can help or direct you. Let us know how you both do.
