Joe's Medical Expenses

My dad has just received some awful news. He has been diagnosed with Cystic Renal Cell Carcinoma. This means that he has a cancerous mass on his kidney. They have decided to treat it with a partial nephrectomy, which involves removing the affected part of his kidney.  Unfortunately, this means that he'll need to be off for at least 6 weeks. Due to the nature of his diagnosis, my parents have decided not to delay treatment and so they have had no time to plan financially for this. This combined with what we assume will be extensive medical bills would be financially devastating to my parents. I'd like to raise at least $4000 to cover their cost of living during the recovery time. Any donation would be very helpful in reducing their stress in this incredibly stressful time. If you can't help financially, your love and support would be just as appreciated.
