    Samantha loved her husband but hated

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct. Could I use the word "commiseration" in this sentence?

    Samantha loved her husband but hated her in-laws because when she was diagnosed with breast cancer some years ago, they showed not a bit of commiseration.

    Re: Samantha loved her husband but hated

    It's not a word that is commonly used in connection with serious illness. I'd use "sympathy".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
