I am lucky to have a dad like mine. I can't describe how tight our bond is. My friends often joke about how much I talk about him. I don't do it on purpose. He has been such a presence in my life that it's become natural. He has been my role model - the person I strive to be even half as awesome as.

We've been through some incredibly tough times together and we have come to accept that our future won't be as bright as we had hoped for, but knowing that we have each other's backs through all of this means the world to me. My dad has been a fighter and I intend to be the same.

Happy Father's Day to all the amazing fathers around the world <3
