    We can’t control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we react to it. 

    My dad brought that old cliché to life for our family in a most unusual way, and we’ll never be the same. 

    During an emergency family meeting, my father told us that he had cancer while dressed as a…bee. (My mom was wearing a bee keeper costume.) The pair had worn the costumes at a Halloween party the night before, and decided to wear them again to “help take the sting out of the news.”

    True story.

    I made this art for my dad shortly thereafter. He asked me to make it into a pin that he could wear every day. I did, and he does. Now, my cancer-free father gives them to people all the time, people who’ve been impacted by cancer. It’s like he’s a volunteer at a marathon handing out water to the runners.

    Because he is.

    Fighting cancer is a hard race. Faith and hope is the water you need to keep going. When my dad hands out the Bee pins, he’s handing out hope. 

    And a reminder that we all need to hear.
