“What is a Dadicorn you might ask? My husband Mike is a Dadicorn.
When our middle daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 4 in September 2018, we quickly adopted the unicorn as our family mascot. And Mike, being the true Girl Dad that he is, took it one step further to become the Dadicorn!
Mike is a textbook introvert and doesn’t like to be the centre of attention, but for his little girls he happily dons that unicorn onesie. The girls giggle with joy as their daddy marches down the street, goes tobogganing, and attends parties as the Dadicorn. He proudly wore the onesie when he walked in the Light the Night walk in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
Our lives haven’t been the same since the day we heard the words ‘your daughter has cancer’ and I don’t know that as parents that we’ll ever truly get over it.
But we’re getting through it together as a family and I couldn’t be prouder of how our Dadicorn has gone above and beyond to make sure all three of our girls have a smile on their faces and know that their dad will do anything for them, unicorn onesie and all!”
