A woman recently asked for some advice after her father sold a ring that her mother left her. Here’s what happened.

A woman’s mother died of cancer. Despite being only eight years old at the time, she remembered her mother and missed her very much.

When the woman was 12, her father remarried. The new wife had her own little girl, who was three at the time.

She Was Diagnosed with Cancer

Just one year later, the woman’s stepsister was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The woman said, “She underwent chemo and radiation, but the treatment didn’t work.”

There Was Another Option

Although traditional cancer treatments hadn’t worked, there was another option that might work.

It Wasn’t Available

The problem was that the alternative treatment wasn’t available at any local hospitals; the girl would have to travel. The treatment would take at least three months, and one of her parents would have to go with her.

The Girl’s Father Couldn’t Help

The woman’s father and stepmother didn’t have a lot of money, so they reached out to the little girl’s biological father, but he wasn’t interested.

The woman said, “There was only one thing that was easily sold and would make enough money to get started on the journey, and that was my mom’s engagement ring.”

That ring was very special. The woman’s mother had left it to her in her will, and it had been passed down through the generations. It was also worth a decent amount of money.

Her Father Wanted to Sell the Ring

The woman’s father said that they had to sell the ring to pay for his stepdaughter’s cancer treatment.

Because of how important the ring was to her, the woman refused. She said, “I told my father I would never forgive him if he sold the ring and that he was stealing from me because it was mine.”

The woman’s father chose to sell the ring anyway. He said it would be selfish to keep the ring when it could save the little girl’s life.

She Stopped Speaking to Him

The woman stopped speaking to her father once the ring was sold. She just couldn’t forgive him. She even said she wished he’d died instead of her mom.

The Cancer Returned

Sadly, the little girl’s cancer came back, and now they need more money to try again. This time, the woman’s father wants to use money he’s put aside for her.

The woman put her foot down, and because she was now 18, there was nothing anyone could do to take the money.

Was She Wrong?

Was the woman wrong not to let her father use the money he’d saved for her to pay for his stepdaughter’s cancer treatment, or should she keep it after he sold her special ring?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “I bet you could still file a civil suit against your father and win. He stole the family heirloom from you.”

Another said, “If there were no ring and no money, what would they have done? Whatever the answer to that is, that’s what they should have done to get the money!”
