Since his daughter, Emma, was in second grade, Garth Callaghan has written inspirational notes on the napkins he packs with her lunch each day. He's promised her she'll get one every day until she graduates high school. Callaghan will keep that promise, even though doctors—who have diagnosed him with cancer three times in two years—give him just an eight percent chance of living another five years.

Since he's likely dying, and soon, he's started writing his lunch notes in advance. He needs 826 total; he's currently at 740. Just 86 more to go.
