It’s so important to make the most of the time we have while alive, as one just never knows when your time is up.
After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Chris Rosati wanted his last few months to be memorable for his young girls.
In 2012 Chris was diagnosed with ALS otherwise known as Lou Gerhig’s disease.
Chris had been career driven all his life, but once he discovered his illness he wanted to put all his effort into raising his daughters and spending quality time with them.
Firstly he borrowed a donut truck form the company Krispy Kreme which came with 1,000 donuts.
They drove the truck around his homeplace of Durham in North Carolina stopping off to deliver them at city parks and hospital wards.
His values have taken a different perspective since he was diagnosed and now his full focus is on his daughters.
“I can’t teach them every lesson. I won’t have enough time – but I can be a good person and they can see that,” he explains.
Chris now feels that fathers who pay more attention or importance to their careers matter have no idea of the real important things.
Logan the oldest daughter said her dad hopes for her to have the best life. “I wouldn’t trade him for a million dollars.”
Logan was asked what she will remember most about her dad she replied, “He tried to make friends with the world. I think it’s hard to do. I’m proud of him.”
In 2017 Chris lost his battle aged 46 years old but he will always be remembered for teaching his daughters to make the most of life with wonderful acts of kindness.
