So, I'm on my hitchhiking trip across the united States and last night. I get a text saying my dad has stomach cancer. It blew my mind like no other, I texted him and asked but he didn't answer, my sister said he didn't want me to come home just because i've been planning this trip all summer. It's just a big shock that the only parent that took care of me is really sick.

Very sorry to hear but really - you only have one set of parents, grandparents etc. My dad is long past and my mom just passed and my siblings are embittered bitey things predisposed to he said she said. So I'm off by myself. Talk to Dad and decide on your course. <3

Make sure to talk to him on the phone everyday. If it sounds like his health is going downhill get home and see him. I'm sure it will lift his spirits to hear from you everyday on your trip.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$55.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $55.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $55.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $55.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
