About my dad

June 18, 2013

I met my dad when I was around 3 or 4 and moved in with him, with my mom, shortly after my 4th birthday and although he wasn’t biologically my father, he’s always been my dad. I remember soon after I moved in sitting with him on the couch, he was wearing a super cool Jaws tshirt and him yelling to my mom “hey Melissa get me a coke” so I yelled “yeah Melissa, get me one too!” Buddies.

When my parents split up, even though he didn’t have to, he just kept me right along with my 2 little brothers. No question in his mind, I was just one of his 3 kids and he always treated me that way. 

Kids always think their dads are the strongest men in the world. They always have the answers, they can always fix your broken shit, and they can always pick up that heavy thing you need moved. Kids also think their dads are immortal because the alternative is simply unthinkable. 

One week ago I was suddenly faced with the reality that dads are regular people. Out of nowhere my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. He’s worked hard labor jobs most of his life and doesn’t have health insurance. He would give his last dollar to someone who needed it and has done just that hundreds of times. He’s a super proud guy and would never ask anyone for help (probably like most dads). I’d give him anything and do anything to help him so I’m turning to my friends, family, and even strangers who might be reading this. I need help helping him. 

Here is the link that if you wanted to you can donate something, anything helps! (Just one of his medicines is $200 A DAY!!)
