Your support for your dad through this ordeal has greatly improved his chances of being cancer free. I know this because one of my daughters has been with me (along with my wife) through my battle with prostate and lung cancer. She was there during both surgeries and we have become much closer because of this experience.
I can only imagine what you ladies go through having a father or husband in this situation. Considering how you react and the support you give, you all are truly angels.
