Prayers for my step father
My stepfather has been sick for the past couple months. He wasn't getting a lot of answers, but an MRI on Friday picked up a large growth in the back of his throat. His doctors are fairly certain it's cancer, either throat cancer or lymphoma. He goes for a biopsy as well as a tonsillectomy the day after Christmas. He's not that old, only 48. He's active, he doesn't smoke or drink, he works hard and takes care of his family.

The thing is, he might be my "step" father, but this man is Dad to me. My biological father was abusive. My step dad chose to be there for us and is an amazing person. My mom married him when I was only 2, so he's been here my whole life. They say you marry a man like your father, and they couldn't be more right. My husband is just like my stepdad.

I'm trying so hard not to be angry about this and to just stay positive for good news, but I can't help but feel like this is happening to the wrong person, like it should be happening to my biological dad. I know, a terrible thing to think but he did terrible things and got away with it. Why do bad things happen to good people, but bad people seem to skirt through life? Please, thoughts and prayers for my Dad. :cry:

I'll keep you all in my prayers. It's so hard but please message me if you want to talk. I have a thread in off topic discussion about my Dad's oral cancer over the past 7 will find that a lot of people are here and more than willing to help you though this ordeal.
