A man suffering from an aggressive form of cancer is writing life advice for his daughter on napkins in case he never gets to see her grow up.
Garth Callaghan, 44, has been diagnosed with cancer three times in the past two years and has just an eight per cent chance of surviving the next five years.
If he isnt around when his daughter Emma is older, the devoted dad has taken to leaving life advice for her in the form of inspiring quotes written on napkins.
The idea is something of a tradition in the Callaghan family. When Emma was younger, Garth worked in a busy sales job and didnt see her very often, so he would write notes to her on napkins and put them in her lunchbox for school.
Now that shes older, hes using the words of people like Eleanor Roosevelt, Gandhi and Audrey Hepburn to make sure Emma has some guidance if he doesnt win his fight against cancer.
Garth said: Today, I am NED No Evidence of Disease. I still likely have cancer, but we cant see it. Thats the irony. I am actually okay, and I feel well.
He also includes short passages from the Bible and has pledged to write over 800 notes for Emma, so that she has one every day in her lunchbox until she graduates from high school.
