Happy Father’s day and happy birthday.
A few weeks ago when you were visiting Adelaide you asked if JJ and I were coming over for your birthday and father’s day. You don’t normally make a point of celebrating your birthday and/or father’s day so I asked you why this one was so different. You didn’t tell me.
Then a couple of weeks later you and mum were in Adelaide again and when I asked you around for dinner mum was really evasive which I thought a bit strange at the time. I knew that I wasn’t being told the truth.
Then shortly after that I got a phone call from mum telling me that you had been over here to have a biopsy which came back positive for prostate cancer. She said that you insisted on a PSA test from your doctor which obviously picked up the cancer early.
This news knocked me for six as bad news quite often does. I didn’t immediately panic as I didn’t know how bad it was.
You’ve since found out it’s localised and has not spread anywhere else which is great news.
You have decided on your course of treatment and I am confident that you will be cured of this.
My thoughts are with you.
