Hip replacement

My name is Elys Herrera, I am trying to raise this money to help my dad with his medical condition. A few years ago he was diagnosed with a bilateral coxalgia which is a disease of the hip joint causing pain, very painful pain which interferes with his regular activities such as simple as walking, sitting down or standing up. In his last visit to the doctor he recommended surgery as the last resource for him to get better as he is not getting any results with physiotherapy or other treatments which he already tried and tried several times. Unfortunately this kind of surgery is not affordable for us anymore, the expenses are way to high for my family to afford and he really needs our help. He is a very good father to us and a very good man to everybody, I hope we can help him so he can have a better quality of life. The sooner we operate the better as his condition is worsening and it is getting harder and harder for him to walk.
We hope to get the funds within 2 months. The budget we have from the clinics change every three days as they fluctuate daily and the cost of the surgery usually goes up, so the more we wait the most expensive it gets. 
We'd really appreciate all the help you can give, big or small, it doesn't matter as long we can contribute to his health.
Thank you for your help!!!
