Best friend, business partner & father just diagnosed

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I'm a 25 year old, single mother of a 3 year old, business owner whose father was just diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer last week. He's the closest person to me (besides my daughter) and so I've gone from being a seriously responsible, capable and driven person, to feeling physically and mentally unable; Almost like I've been hit by a two-by-four. I am now taking on what was always my dad's role as cornerstone of our friends, family and business ventures. Glad to have these sites so that I don't get dumped into the looney bin.
