Ricks journey to conquer cancer

My Dad is my rock,The first man I loved and will always love! My Dad is one of those guys who if you need help ,even if he didn’t know you he would take that moment and help even if he just wanted his time to himself. He’s that guy that everyone falls in love with the second they meet him. You want jokes or a good laugh, that’s my dad for  sure. My Dad is a very lovable, outgoing, most down to earth man you will ever meet. He loves everything in life and  would never tell you he regrets his life or anything in it. This man, my Dad and my rock is everything to me. He has taught me everything I need to know about love and life. I learned a lot from this man especially love and respect. I never thought that the day we heard my Dad had stage 4 glioma would just break me and our family. In my Dad’s eyes we all know he just wants us to be strong, positive and know that this was going to be OK. We are all scared! But when the doctor told us for how healthy, young, and strong my Dad is he can fight this. We will all fight this as our TEAM GREY!!I love you dad❤️my rock!  always and forever ~ Katherine 

 My Dad‘s first reply after hearing the Doctors tell him that the  cancerous tumor that he has is caused by the unknown and is just a case of...… “bad luck” was ......”Well, we can’t have good luck if we don’t have bad luck “......  If you know my Dad you know he said that with a smile on his face.  It was then that I realized how strong he was, these last few weeks have caused the most gut wrenching emotions I have ever faced in my life.  I’ve never prayed so hard and the financial burden shouldn’t be a factor in his positive fight going into this ❤️  He has been healthy his whole life, I’m holding onto that ...... My Dad, My Hero ....... I love you ~ Brittany 

 My Dad is the best father in the world! He would give you the coat off his back in an instant. He’s always willing to help anyone at any given minute. He cares so much for us kids and his grandkids ...  he’s my Dad and our HERO!...  we love him very much........Unfortunate events came about and now we need some help,  he was diagnosed with grade 4  glioblastoma cancer and can’t make ends meet as he's unable to work..... He’s the only income for his household and with the treatments of radiation and chemo therapy the medical and regular households bills are piling up quickly with no income to support him and my mom.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Love you Dad ~ Christopher
