My Dad with Parkinson's

My name is Antonio Gonzalez, 

I was born and raised in  Venezuela. 

The situation is so bad in our country of birth that i had to bring my parents from their country they love so much. 
My dad was diagnosed with parkingson's dicease six years ago, he went to the Navy in venezuela when he was 18 and has not stopped working. 

Now that he lives in the U.S his treatment is very expensive and we do not have insurance. 

We have been trying different medication to make his life better also he needs physical therapy and we simple cannot afford it. 

the money we raise will be for his medication (azilect),physical therapy and to buy a "marvelous bed" that's how my dad calls a massage bed that he used in Venezuela from Seragen (http://www.ecrater.com/p/23315838/fir-far-infrared-jade-therapy?gps=1&id=115931379379

Right now my dad has only one pill left of azilect that the doctor gave him as a sample and we simply do not have the $600 that the medicine cost per month. 

My Dad is only 66 years old and his life has changed dramatically in the last 8 months, Leaving his family and friends for a better quality of life. 

It kills me to see a man that had worked so hard to give us the best opportunities in life, have such a rough time with this deteriorating and frustrating disease. 

Please help my back bone in life have a better end to his journey. 

Thank you so much for your help.
