Stage 4 cancer ..... The words i will never forget
by Joanna Owle
Hi, my name is Joanna, i am 21 years old. My father was diagnosed with cancer (stage 4) in July of 2013, he passed on on October 15, 2013. I will never forget that day just as i will never forget my father and the love he had for me. He was my best friend, and showed me what it is to be strong , not physically but mentally. His passing, or ot being there is still a new concept for me ( It has only been a few weeks after all). He was an extremely caring, honest , loving, God fearing individual who would never give up because of me. I was his only child. There is no words to describe how i feel. I have to remind myself on a daily basis that he is okay, he is cancer free now and out of pain , and this helps me to cope. I can remember my father looking me in the eyes, with tears in his, saying " Joanna, i am so tired of hurting." I never knew what to say. I just hugged him and cried with him. He is my angel, and will always be . I look forward to the day when i can hug my father agin and tell him face to face " Daddy, i love you."
