There is nothing fancy about this card, but it is more of a special card than fancy one.
I found out Friday night that my dad has Level 2 Prostate Cancer (hope I got that right, the word used was either "level" or "stage", I can't remember.) My dad was very calm about it and I told myself to do the same, but as soon as I got off the phone, I cried so much it hurt. I love my Dad very much and I can't imagine this happening to him. He said he felt fine, but I still worry, after all, he's my Daddy! I am 39 years old (turning 40 in March) and I still call him Daddy.
I made this card for him and am going to send it out tomorrow morning. He is having a procedure done tomorrow.
Please remember him in your prayers. He is a wonderful man who has spent all the years since me and my brothers have grown up and moved away dedicating his time to the Shriners. He is a clown named Dr. Pickles. He has spent countless hours spending time at the hospitals clowning for the kids and taking them stuffed animals that he and my mom either bought or had them donated to take to the kids. He needs to come through this to continue doing good for the kids.
Sorry for the novel. If you've come this far, thanks for sharing in my moment with me. Pam

I am terribly sorry to hear about your father. I will keep him in my prayers. I will keep positive thoughts for him as well. I am sure that he will love the card that you made for him. You used such a calming blue. Everything about your card shows your Dad how much you love him. Be well and try to think positive.
There is a new robot laser surgery that the doctor operates by viewing TV screen that all the men in our community are getting. Be sure to ask your doctor about this procedure. He may have to go a distance for the surgery but from what I am hearing well worth the effort. Good luck. Great card.

I just prayed for both your father and you for I know what a stressful time this can be. You are so fortunate to have such a dear man for your Daddy and he equally blessed to have such a loving daughter. You will get through this tough time together by the love that you share. This is a beautiful card that you made him and I am sure he will cherish it. I wish the Lord's peace for you and healing for your father. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card and the lovely story of your Dad with us.

Prayers were just sent your way for you and your dad. I know just what you are going through right now as my father also had prostrate cancer a few years ago and had some new procedure at that time (planting radiation seeds) and did great. I will say that your card will also lift his spirits. Both my husband and myself were WOW'd by the beauty and softness of your card - will CASE for sure.
I'm so sorry that you had to make this card, but it sounds like they caught it fairly early. I know two men who had prostate surgery and they've both been doing fine for several years now. I lost a husband 24 years ago and a very dear friend 10 years ago to cancer, so I can understand your feelings about the scariness of the disease, but they have come such a long way in the treatments! I hope everything goes well for him!
