Default So much for a 'Happy New Year'...

Just found out Dad has cancer...the extent of which remains to be seen, he needs further investigation/testing first, then we should know more about what we're dealing with. Trying not to freak out yet...he doesn't know that I know, either...

Dad is who got me into the cars/Corvettes/racing hobby at a young age...I remember seeing a bell housing for the first time, along with various other Corvette parts, scattered on the floor of the garage, which he had custom built specifically for the '67 frame off resto he did

Attached is a pic of our cars together at a beach show last July...hoping this isn't our last one

This is the part of getting older that sux out loud...when your parents get older also, sick, or worse

So ironic that I just posted this a day ago in JRD77VET's thread about his BIL...

So sad to read of this. My prayers are out for you, your Dad and the rest of the family.
Praying for a favourable outcome if he goes through treatment and strength
and endurance for him and family.

Cancer truly sucks, but can be beat. Hoping for a full recovery for your dad.

That's terrible, prayers for the entire family

From your VB friends

Hope it's caught early and turns out to be "only a scare".
