About Garth

W. Garth Callaghan has been diagnosed with cancer four times since November 2011 and doctors recently gave him five years to live. So Garth set out with a mission: to write 826 napkin notes for his 14-year-old daughter, Emma; one for each day until she graduates from high school. When Emma was in kindergarten, Garth began packing the handwritten napkins with personal notes and famous quotes inside her lunchbox.

Garth compiled the notes in a self-published e-book, Napkin Notes. With a passionate social media fan base, he shares the daily napkin inspiration on his blog, Twitter and Facebook. His story has gained national attention and he and Emma have appeared on The Today Show and Fox & Friends.

Garth encourages parents to write their children notes to create deeper connections and relationships. “This isn’t a story about cancer, because any parent at any time could be hit by a car or have a heart attack. This is really about leaving a legacy so that she can understand some of my life philosophies and how much I love her.”

Garth currently resides in Virginia.
