My Dad.My Hero Hope for my Dad...

My whole family has been affected ever since my dad was diagnosed with a Pituitary Brain Tumor in October 2006. This is a big trial in our family.

Back in October 2006, I accompanied my dad to the doctor. At that time, he thought it was just a cataract, but it turned out to be a brain tumor. I can't understand all of my feelings. I feel like sometimes I am screaming inside. I cried a lot, but tried to control it because I didn't want my dad see me crying. It was all very sad.

My dad is in the Philippines right now. His tumor affects his eyes and he gets really sad a lot. Sometimes, it really breaks my heart. My family and I give him so much emotional support and we show him so much love. We also tell him to be strong because he is our inspiration for being a good father.

Sometimes I ask myself, "Why did this happen to my father?" He is the very,very best father in the whole world. All he wanted was surgery, but we can't financially that. Instead, we offer him emotional support as something we can give. If only I can transfer the brain tumor from his head into my head. I would do that for my father because I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!
