My father, Francisco, has a limited time left in his life(a few months). We had only learned very recently that the cancer(stage 4) had spread to many parts of his body, and there are no treatment options, as this will take his life soon. While he has a spirit that is relentless, full of passion and energy, unfortunately his body is failing. My father has worked incredibly hard all his life, roofing for over 40 yrs. He was even working in his fragile condition up until mid-December to provide for his family.
He taught his children and grandchildren what hard work looks like and that family is the most important thing. It is painful to see him, once full of humor, sarcasm and vibrancy become so weak, and frail. As I type this, I am weeping and leaving my comfort zone in asking for help. However, at this time my dad and mom need to not worry about the medical bills, the funeral costs, or the expenses left behind for my mom. The money raised will be used to help ease the financial burden, and let us focus on just loving each other while we are all still together.
