Hi, my name is Lilly and I am 13. In the beginning of August, I was told that my dad had a tumour in his brain that was effecting the movement on his left side. They sent him to Edmonton for tests. About a week after they discovered it was a tumour, they did surgery on his brain. The surgery went well, however, soon after that we were notified that it was cancerous and was in stage 4. We all are optimistic but unfortunately his cancer is terminal and he only has a short time left. They sent him to Victoria for treatments. I went from seeing my father every other week to not seeing him at all. I call him whenever I get the chance but it isn’t often. I miss him and want to see him. On average, I used to hug him every day. But I haven’t hugged him since he left for Victoria which was just over a month ago. I would be extremely grateful if I could go and see him for a week this thanksgiving and stock up on hugs:) Thank you so much for letting us see our dad for thanksgiving.
