Dad would have laughed at me posting this photo. He was always acting ridiculous, making hilarious faces and just being insane! He especially liked acting nuts in department stores and when we were shopping in general. There were many times that I fell into racks of clothes because he had me laughing so hard, not only when I was a child, but up until the last time I saw him in "fine form". I had a magical childhood due to this man ~ thank you Dad!
***Only 3 out of 100 people die each year from prostate cancer. My Dad was one of those three and he was only 65 years old. He was on medication for three years for an enlarged prostate and his doctor did not think that it was necessary to remove his prostate. He was wrong. My Dad fought a very quick, courageous battle with the utmost dignity and grace. Please be vigilant about your loved ones health care. Force them to go to the doctor and get tested no matter how much they complain and don't want to do it. Be aggressive with doctors, do not allow them to put you off for months to get a biopsy and to start treatment if cancer is found. I have no doubt in my mind that my Dad would be alive today if he would have lived in the United States instead of Canada. The healthcare system in this country is incredible, in my opinion. Please use it to you and your loves ones full advantage! Precious lives can be saved!
