Help My Father Pay For Chemotherapy

As if losing his wife after 26 years of marriage, suffering a heart attack, and being stuck for over a decade in an unsatisfying, low paying job wasn't enough for him to go through, my father was recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. And we are terrified. We have been told that we will be lucky if he lives for another two years. 
Besides this, we are also afraid of how we will pay for this. If my father does make it out of the hopsital, there is a chance that he will not be able to return to work, and even if he does he will have to pay for four more rounds of chemotherapy. We have little means of doing this. Even with me no longer in college (I have decided not to return next year because of this), there is little possiblity that we will be able to both pay medical bills and daily expenses. 
Having cancer is stressful enough. Going into debt because of that cancer is even worse. I feel horrible writing this, as if I were asking for an undeserved handout. But we need help, and can only hope for it from you.
