Courteney Cox Spoils Dying Dad

COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE is showering her dad with love as he fights a desperate battle against cancer. RICHARD COX says the disease has now spread to his liver and he doesn't know how long he can go on.

He explains, "I've had aggressive chemotherapy treatment for a year and a half. I'm doing the best I can. But how long can you keep this up?"

Cox, who recently went to spend a week in Malibu, California, with his beloved daughter, continues, "Courteney filled the house with beautiful flowers and everything you could ask for. "

A friend adds, "Courteney spent hours sitting with her father looking at his pictures, holding and kissing his hand and trying to hold back the tears. Her dad is her hero. It's very tough for her. " (MB/TG/RP
