What’s behind the mask of a Cancer Dad?

  • family

What’s behind the mask of a Cancer Dad? is a collection of short quotes from anonymous fathers who have a child with cancer. The quotes were collected by author Mark Meyers whose youngest daughter died of Ewing’s Sarcoma in 2015. 

Each quote begins with I think you should know that … Examples of quotes include:

  • I think you should know that on some level I feel like this is my fault.
  • I think you should know that I would have died for my baby but wasn’t given the option.
  • I think you should know that not only did I wonder “Why my child?” but I have actually wondered “Why not somebody else’s?” which made me hate myself for my own cruelty
