Save my Parents home

To whomever reads this, please do so with an open heart and mind. My name isTinamarie wendell and I'm trying to save my parents Debbie and Robin wendell's home from being taken away from them by foreclosure. My father is disabled and unable to work. Still they have never paid their mortgage late in over 20 years. They have a second mortgage and a new company has purchased the loan and wants it all in full or they are going to foreclose on their home. They are basically giving them no time to do so. The past years have been nothing but tragic for them. It started 15 years ago with my father being diagnosed with CROHNS disease and stage 2 severe DIABETES and FIBROMYALGIA . All which are debilitating. That was just the beginning of my fathers health deteriorating. June of 2016 he had trouble walking. In and out of the hospital several times before doctors found an abscess in his leg that ate his tissue from the inside out( see the pictures below). It was over 8"long and 7" wide. They had to take out the tissue to his muscle. once released a nurse had to come to the house twice a week to make sure his bandages were changed correctly so he didn't get an infection. However, his pain, along with incredibly high fever, increased heart rate, disorientation and nausea became worse. He had lost over 70 lbs in just a short few months. In the hospital, admitted, once again. They found he had CDIFF( a symptomatic infection due to spore forming bacterium). He had to be quarantined because he was sepsis and anyone that was to come in contact with him needed to be in fully covered in gloves, a gown and face mask. We almost lost him. By the grace of god he became a bit stronger and was able to come home. That lasted all of three weeks. He was unresponsive and had to be taken by ambulance to the ER. We were told the CDIFF wouldn't return, but within weeks it did and he was on life support yet again. This time it was worse. He started responding to medication and after months in the hospital, was transferred to a nursing home. He needed around the clock care. My mother, who is a paraprofessional at a school, went from work to the hospital and back to work. She was doing everything she could to keep things afloat. Now with the new loan company demanding the second mortgage due in full( and they won't work with them on it) they're going to lose their home also! The money will be used to pay the second mortgage loan that the company is DEMANDING or they'll be forclosed upon. They've  been punished enough. My parents have ALWAYS provided and helped any way they could for their 4 children and after 38 years of marriage, they need some help. Please, I beg of you, find it in your heart to help these 2 amazing people not lose their home.
