When I felt powerless was when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. My father is very important to my family. I don’t know what I would have don if it was any more serious. Throughout that week my parents were very quite. I was noticing that there was something wrong they are never this quiet. I tried going to basketball practice, but just couldn’t do it on the court or in the classroom, my mind was only on my father. My father wasn’t looking too good. One day my mother said that she wanted to talk to my sister and me. I had a bad feeling in my stomach. I knew what it was about.
So I went to the gym to try and escape the meeting hoping that it wasn’t what I thought it was. When I arrived at home that night I saw my sister crying. My mother came up to me and told me that my father has cancer. I didn’t say anything I just sat there. I didn’t cry or show any emotions or pain because that’s the way my father taught me.
Knowing that my father was weak. I had to be the strong one. I felt that if I revealed my pain my family would to, and this wasn’t the time for that we had to get stronger. Through out the weeks and months I saw how weak my dad was becoming. He couldn’t go to word or do normal things around the house. I tried to do as much word as I could around the house. Looking out for my mother and sister.
Inside I was still holding in my pain and anger. How could something happen to my father? He is always the first one to help someone out. I prayed every night. The pain slowly went away, but the anger was still there. The people that my father helped when they need something, was nowhere to be found, and that angered me the most. In my heart I knew my dad would be cured.

About 3 months after my father had been diagnosed. I came home from school. My mother called the house and told me that the doctors were able to get all of the cancer out of my father’s body. It was the proudest day of my life.
Since then we have become closer. Every day I feel for the people who have lost their parents. I also remember my friends when I was younger losing their families in gang warfare don’t know how or where I would be without my parent or parents. This situation has only made me stronger knowing how precious life is, and that anything’s possible.
