Firstly, thank you for already coming this far to help my father, before anything my whole family wants you to know how much this means to us. I, for one wish for many blessings to you and your own family and for God to give you all a million years to be together. Thank You once again.
You might want to know who the man you're going to help out is...and truth is, this man is actually just an ordinary man to the world; in a banquet hall he will be the man who is dressed in a plain crew neck t shirt, over washed slacks, and sandals--he probably won't be smiling much because he's probably concentrated on giving a helping hand to put a smile on some one else. He wouldn't look like he fits in but would seem completely comfortable...and this man is Va Cheng Vang, he is a son, a father, a best friend, a soldier, and above all a Hero.
How can this plain and very ordinary man be a hero? Not just because he is a soldier, but because he is the hero of his children's hearts. My father grew up in Laos, he not only fought in the Vietnam war, but survived it with pride! Although my father grew up poor, he always had things, ideas, and love to offer and share endlessly, especially to his family and children. The reason my father dresses only in t shirts and old pants is because with every dime he makes, it is spent to put a roof over his children, put new clothes on our backs, and so that we do not starve. He spends very little to nothing at all for himself, thus making my father appear as a man that does not deserve respect, when truly he is the Hero and savior to all lives he's ever touched and especially his family. We can go on forever about what a great man our father is, but it'll require a trilogy of books...but what hurts the most is that he survived a war, fought enemies off, protected his children from all harm...but in the end, he must suffer with multiple strokes, heart attacks, and now being threaten by becoming brain dead, having more stokes, and even death. What hurts even more is that as his children, the sole purpose of his hard work and selflessness, we can't even come up with the sum to even get my father a proper meal. Times are hard...but it's no excuse, and I can't think of anything else during these hard times but to reach out to you all to help by donating anything you can to ease the pain not for us (the children)...but to ease the pain of our Father...our Hero. He will be going through more surgeries on his brain, where he recently just recovered from a heart operation, my father has to co pay EVERY SINGLE visit to the hospital, minor or major, our family has been doing our best to hold up and help with his visits and medications, but with time, things are getting harder and harder...We will have nothing in return of your help, aside from our blessings....We just want our father to be able to visit his doctors with ease, and be able to know that he can get his medicine on time.....PLEASE HELP WITH ANYTHING YOU CAN....every penny counts....
