My sister (Ashley) and I (Victoria) are trying to raise money for my dad who was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Bone Cancer, which is very aggressive at this time and his tumor is about a foot big. He cannot walk on his own. During the time of his diagnosis, he was already out of work due to an accident that had happened on January 1, where he tore his rotator cuff. He has had no income since. He has to do 3 rounds of chemotherapy (2 are completed), and he has radiation 5 days a week for several weeks at a time before the doctors figure out a game plan for surgery. He does have medical/basic needs, which we all know cost money.
My mom, Rhonda, and stepdad, Steve, have been more than helpful and supportive during this hard time, financially helping my dad and us out. However, my stepdad had lost his job at this time. It has been/is going to be very hard to stay afloat with both parents/family members out of a full-time job. Pretty soon we will have no insurance or coverage for anything. That is why my sister, Ashley, and I are asking for anything that anyone can spare. I work part-time with going to school, and may not be able to continue school at this time because my tuition has also gone up, and I believe that we need that money right now for my dad and family.
This money will go towards all of the medical care for my dad, and my family to get our basic needs met/bills paid. My sister and I are trying to help out with the bills as much as possible, as much as my part-time job will allow.
This page was sort of a "last resort" because we are not ones to ask for any financial help, and we understand that everyone has their own bills to pay and are trying to make ends meet, but during this time if anyone has $1 to spare, we would be more than grateful and appreciative.
We never expect this to happen to us or our family, but "you never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice".
Thank you, ALL!
