My parents lived in fort mcmurray for many years and due to my dad being diagnosed with cancer they were forced to retire early to move to Edmonton for his treatment. They hated living in the city so they moved an hour our side of edmonton when they found out my dad was terminal. He was doing well for a while but the last couple of months have been really bad. They have been going back and forth to Edmonton for appointments more and more. Their vehicle is a piece of garbage, to say the least. It isn't reliable especially on the highway. With all my dad's medical bills and medication bills they don't have enough to afford car payments or to buy a used vehicle. I know my dad doesn't want to have to move back to the city, he LOVES being in the country and was miserable when they lived in town. I would like for them to be able to stay but without a new vehicle they will soon be forced to move back into the city. I'm hoping to raise enough money to buy them a road worthy, four wheel drive vehicle that would be good for the highway or to put enough on a new one to get the payments low enough where they could afford to pay them.
But SHHH, it's a surprise! When we reach the goal I will post a video of the family telling them :)
