On August 3, 2021, my dad, Mick McGinty, found out that he had developed lung cancer. Two days later, tests revealed that it was Stage IV and that it was inoperable. This news came as a shock to our entire family and to everyone who knows my dad. Calls, texts, and emails began flooding in to our family, and the love, care, and concern that we have all felt has been extraordinary and comforting. In an effort to keep everyone up to speed, we hope that by subscribing via text or email to this blog, we can continue the care, and most importantly the prayers, in order to help keep my parents' spirits high and filled with hope and faith.
