Wow...what a week. Last week my sweet daddy had skin cancer biopsies..notice the red face after they burnt his face off to zap the cancer...
The day after that, he had a biopsy on his prostate after having a high PSA count...we were told to wait a week for the results...and this week we got the results...He has cancer. 
Prostate Cancer. I hate the C word. I am devastated! My parents are being so strong and I am trying to be. The tears are flowing as I type this. I am a daddy's girl. My dad means the world to me. We have so many memories together not even to count. From fishing on Kingsley lake as a child, to him painting my nails, teaching me to drive, walking me down the aisle,

and to the most recent introducing him to his first grandchild...

The good news is the doctor thinks we caught it early. They took 18 biopsies and only one had the cancer. Him and mom meet with the dr. next Thursday to discuss his options (radiation or surgery). I just want my daddy healthy. I know that prostate cancer is one of the most curable cancers and I rest in that. I know God is in control. 1 in 6 men get prostate cancer, scary! Please pray for my sweet daddy! I dont want him in pain, but more importantly I am not ready to lose him! Lord, please heal him quickly!


  1. Leighton- I am soo sorry to hear this!!! I will deft. pray for your dad! My family is battling cancer with my sweet grandfather right now. It's not fair that good people have to deal with this!

  2. My dad was diagnosed-- out of the blue-- with testicular cancer last January. I was devastated and so scared because it was fairly advanced. He had surgery the next week, followed by radiation for six weeks, and has been cancer free since then. Lots of prayers for you and your family!

  3. sending prayers and love your way!

  4. thanks so much for all the prayers! So sorry to hear about your families! Praying for you all!
