Medical Expenses for my sick father

Hello Everyone my name is Samantha and I am raising money for my father who needs help with his medical care.

It is with a heavy heart to announce that my father has been diagnosed with lung cancer. We are not sure of the stage yet but from the doctors words the photos and polyps removal it does not look good. I have decided to start a go fund me account for his girlfriend Nicole who is doing so much to take care of him. Sometime throughout this year my father has suffered 3 strokes unknowingly and it has caused permanent damage to his brain. He can no longer care for himself and do his activities of daily living. The strokes have also caused memory issues. He will not only need a caregiver throughout each week while Nicole is working full time to pay rent and bills for them but she needs help with transportation as well. They live in Harvey, ILL so she doesn’t drive and takes Ubers to all of his appointments back and fourth. He has medical insurance from the state but it is not very good and it won’t cover numerous things he will need. 

My father is such a caring, goofy and loving person. He is so good with children and is very hardworking and always willing to help people in need. He loves his family, especially his grandchildren. 

This means so much to me and my family that my father gets the help he needs because we are not sure how long he has. I am his only child but I reside in Washington and am not able to be there for him right now. We all can’t do everything but we can all do something :) 

I pray give whatever you can and we will forever be grateful. Nicole will get all the proceeds sent directly to her to continue caring for my father. We thank you for taking the time to read this. We also ask for lots of prayers as we go through this difficult time. We are keeping the faith and staying positive through it all.
