Rick Cook's Cancer Expenses

Last year my dad was diagnosed with stage 2 esophogeal cancer. On tuesday May 30th, they were going to remove his esophogous to remove the cancer but found cancer on his liver so they were unable to do the surgery. Because the cancer has spread he is in stage 4 esophogeal cancer and doctors are giving him a few months to live. Medical bills including medicine expenses (and sadly down the road funeral expenses) keep piling up and my family is struggling to find the money to keep up. One medicine that my dad needs to help him eat is $400 alone and isn't covered by insurance and that is just a small portion of what he needs. We just want to keep him comfortable and pain free for the rest of the time he has left with us. Any amount would help my family especially my parents and would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Update: We just found out that the immuno therapy that my dad has been receiving is not giving us the results that we had all hoped. As of right now, the doctors are giving my dad two months to live and hospice is coming in now. Medical bills are still piling up and now the inevitable is happening sadly. Any amount of money would greatly help my family with medical bills and keeping my dad comfortable and pain free for whatever amount of time he has left with us. If you are unable to donate, I ask that you please share this and pray for my dad and family. Thank you
