My Dad Has Prostate Cancer
October 5, 2009 2:35pm CST
Hello, I'm asking for prayers for my dad. He has cancer on 3 places in his prostate. My dad and I have had a difficult relationship thru the years. He is a difficult person to talk to and to describe to you. He has lots of issues. But I still love him and I know he is very afraid right now. I had breast cancer a little over 5 years ago and he was good to me then. I know what it is like to be told you have cancer and it is frightening to say the least. My dad is not saved. He does not know the Lord Jesus Christ and this is what concerns me the most about him. I want him to be saved because I want him to be with me and my family in heaven. I pray for him everyday. I know that most prostate cancer is very treatable, but my dad is a very negative person and I'm sure my mom and the rest of my family will have our work cut out for us! Thank you guys for listening and for your prayers! God bless you and I love you all! ~Spring

Thanks wookieekyut and all you guys for your prayers and well wishes. My dad's tests show that the cancer is only in the prostate...it hasn't spread anywhere. This is great news! He will only need radiation and the Dr is very confident that this will take care of it! God is good..ALL the time and I know He is wanting my dad to live long enough to come to know Him and be saved. Still praying for that! May God bless! ~Spring

I'm so glad he got a clean bone scan! A beloved uncle of mine just got the same results and we were so relieved it hadn't spread. I'm very happy that you got to experience the same relief and I hope that his treatment is very quick and over with soon, and he has many, many healthy years ahead!

I am saddened to hear this and my best wishes to your dad for a speedy recovery, you and your family - I wish you strength to help your pater fight this illness. As a cancer survivor, a suggestion, my wife never shed a tear and my parents, more so my father kept my spirits up when I found that I had 4th stage pancreatic cancer in August 2002. Seven years later, post a surgery that almost took my life at that time, I still remember these aspects, this support from my family, this strength of my family and friends. Hence, if your father does not accept religion, please don't force it upon him at this stage in his life. If he has to accept it, he surely will, if he doesn't have to then no power on earth and beyond can make him accept religion. Be nice to him, even if he is rude or doesn't reciprocate, just show him that you care for him more than you care for your religious beliefs, hope for the best and I am sure that all of you will come out this crisis far stronger, far better bonded than ever before. Life's Lovely! Love & Live Life! Live & Let Live! No offense intended.

Hi springlady, I am sorry to hear that. But just like you said, most prostate cancer is very treatable. Surgery, radiotherapy and hormonetherapy may be helpful. So try some treatments is necessary. The following is my suggestion. Firstly, you and your family should cheer up your dad and persuade your father to receive some treatment. Secondly, take some advices from your primary health professional and go to hospital and visit oncologists. Thirdly, but not the least, take a hopeful and good mind to face cancer. Hope you dad can be cured soon. If you have any questions about cancer, you can send me privacy messages. Maybe i can give some help. Take care of you and your father!

May your dad find inner peace and the warmth of your love. Guide his journey through this horrible disease with your loving arm. May he be filled with hope and have all that his body needs to fight. Give yourself gentle, nurturing care as your creator wants for you. Draw in the strength of love and let this power carry you. You will be in our thoughts.
