i am 15 years old and my dad has had brain cancer for 3 years. i have 2 brothers, younger (13) and older (17). i am the only girl in my family. both of my parents work, and my dad often comes home early because he is too sick to stay. i end up having to take care of things around the house. i know my dad is sick and probrably dying, and i feel cheated. none of my friends at school understand what i am going through. when he swears or acts strange, they think it is just im being funny. he is different now than he used to be, and when he feels sick he says hurtful things to me especially, since i am his only daughter. my mom tries to comfort me but it doesnt help. he cant help the way he is, and it hurts me when he says stuff like that. i am afraid that if my daddy dies, my family will go to ruins. i would like to know if anyone has advice for me.
