Helping the Hitchcock's

I know first hand know the pain of losing a loved family member and it is one of the worst things to experience in life. About a month ago, I unfortunately heard the news of one of my best friends fathers being diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. He went from Normal to dying in just weeks before my dear friends Nursing school graduation. That's an incredible amount of stress to bare. At this point they told her he has about six months to live and within two weeks after that he was put on hospice from his rapid sickness and pain level. I hate knowing her dad is suffering and that she has to watch it every single day. My heart is very heavy and broken for this amazing family who has always treated me like I was part of it. Her family being extremely small and to her not working a lot due to intense school that she just finished up, and her loving, strong, single mother who keeps her house running there isn't much left to spend in a month for anything then what they're able to spend. Chuck Hitchcock is a wonderful man and a great father to my friend and her sister and he makes me laugh anytime I see him. I hate that this family has to face this and the time period of his life is sadly coming to an end. They don't have the money to give him a service or a burial. I don't want them to add anymore stress onto there incredibly full plate. Any donation big or small will help. Please help me raise money to help this amazing family in desperate need. Thank you and god bless. ❤️
