This is my mommy and daddy<3

Here is the story of my dad. I am a 12 year old girl. My dad and mom had been married for twenty-five years. They have seven beautiful kids. Three boys and four girls.Ever since I was two my dad has been sick. He battled lung cancer for 7 years. The doctors told him he was cured. We were celebrating and had a party. My father, (Scott) started vomiting and feeling sick. So we took him into the hospital. They said his cancer has come back this time it was in his right lung instead of his left. They then found another tumor in his brain. He had surgery. They removed the tumor. We thought everything was going right. But they told us it was terminal which means it can come back anytime. The night of May 28th, my dad basically got paralyzed. He couldn't walk, speak, or eat. All of us seven kids said our good byes. We knew he could hear us even though he didn't respond. May 29th, was my oldest brother Jason's birthday. We knew he wasn't gonna live much longer. The last day I had with my daddy was May 30th 2011. me and half of the family went for a car ride to get out of the house. We got a call at 11:13 saying hurry home. We got home... Dad was gone. He was dead. He died 11:11 on Memorial Day of 2011. I miss my dad, he was the best thing that ever happened to me. Hes gone.Now my mom is battling lung cancer her self. She is tumor free right now. Lets keep our fingers crossed that she stays that way<3 R.I.P daddy.

Julie I am sorry for your loss of your Dad to lung cancer. What a difficult disease to detect. Lung cancer cannot be detected early. It is a silent killer. My husband died 6 months ago of lung cancer. He worked with asbestos and this is how he got his deadly cancer.
Life is difficult when you lose a loved one. A dad is a very significant person in his children's lives. WE just soldier on hoping and praying that we get through our grief and rise to see another day till it is our time to be called home.
