As some of you may know my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago, and it has progressed to stage IV since then. He had a particularly strong dose of chemotherapy a few weeks ago, and his health has been in rapid decline since then. He has been in and out of the hospital a few times a month for multiple things, and his cognition is also declining. He cannot be alone, as he is unable to do things by himself and is at high risk for falling, so he requires full-time care.
We are hiring a private caretaker to come to our home and care for him as my mother is unable to stay home full-time for monetary reasons and I am a college student in PA, so we are unable to give him the proper care he needs. We are asking for donations to fund his private caretaker so that my mother can return to work to pay their mortgage in the meantime. Thank you for reading, and any size donations are appreciated.
