A father's age! I was expecting to read about Fathers who were at least 50 plus! I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer which is now in my lymph nodes and there are some suspicious dots on my lungs. It is a very aggressive cancer. My Dad was 54 when I was born. Maybe you should study that!

my father was forty when I was born - so far I am a healthy woman of 65 - I hope I will not be a statistic unless it is a positive one. 

My husband died of colon cancer - however he was healthy most of his life -

I think there is too much emphasis on statistics ---
