This Father's Day, I am reminded of the father I lost in January. He is also the father I found in the last decade as we grew closer. Dad passed away days short of his 68th birthday. He was first diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, or nose cancer, 26 years ago. His last battle during 26 days of hospitalisation, traversing Christmas and New Year's Day, was not with cancer but with pneumonia, possibly resulting from aspiration due to dysphagia, a side effect of neck radiation for cancer.
