Please Help Save My Parent's Home

My father is 78 years old and has Alzheimer's.  The disease is advancing quickly, he can no longer take care of himself.  My mother and I are his primary caregivers and are doing our best to keep him home with family as it progresses.  Mom is on a fixed income.  I work full time and am also a full time college student, set to graduate this Spring, 2019.  I've left school many times over the years in order to help family, I am really pushing to finish now.  We have a hard time making the mortgage payment.  We're literally at risk of losing the house, at which point I have no idea what we would do. My dream here is to raise enough money to pay off the house for them and help cover the costs of his very expensive medications and other living needs. I would never dream of asking for money like this, but then I thought "we live in a world where a multi-millionaire can raise millions just so she can be a billionaire.  People set up, and succeed, in GoFundMe campaigns for boob jobs, dream cars, festival tickets, vacations etc. So I figured I would take a shot in the dark here and see if there is anything I can do to help save my father's home.  He is a Vietnam-Era veteran who worked his entire life, providing for his family.  Watching him fade away in front of us is so hard.  Thinking of having to put him in a residential home and losing his house is just too much.  I want him to be around family, who love him, until the end.  We take him to church every Sunday, make sure he has what he needs, treat him with patience and love.  So I'm making this campaign, and putting it out there and will see what happens. Blessings to all.
