I second that, Bob! And thank you to all of our Dads and Fathers who have been our wonderful supportive caregivers during this adventure. My 83 year-old dad came up to Stanford every week throughout radiation to take me to lunch and give me love and support. And my husband has been there lovingly with me through every minute of this experience. Happy Father's Day!
Love,
Karen

Ditto from me - my dad came half way across the country to look after me. He tried so hard not to cry when he saw me in ICU, to be brave for me.

He is an amazing man, and there are no words to express how fortunate I am that he is my dad!
