I'm not trying to make the a sad story or shit, but here it goes, all true* This past year I thought it was going to be my year, i got a new HD camera, new skis, and all this stuff, I was so excited to ski that year. As the season was right around the corner, my dad got a fatal cancer cell in his pancreas, one of the most fatal caners, he was given 2 months to live. My family was in shock, and it was the hardest time as a family we have ever been through, the problem was that my dad is 68 still working at a carwash he owns but doesnt make nearly as much money as he needs to. My mom had to work 65 hours a week, my sister flew back from New Zealand where she lived and had to find a job as quick as she could just to help with money issues, as a 15 year old boy getting a job was hard so i was left to sell my new hd camera that i worked so hard to buy, my ski equipment, and my skis... I'm not begging for these skis, I just would like to put out my story of need, My dad as we speak is still in the hospital and god love him, hes holding strong, but not sure how much longer he can last, i dont want to take skis just cause my dad is in crucial condition, but you wanted me to give a reason, and i feel this is the best reason i have to offer, and I absolute swear to god this is a true story/statement and to any of you who don t believe me fuck you.
