"Honor your Mother and Father"

The Bible tells us to "Honor your mother and Father"...and this is where my heart is at.  My name is John Henneman and I need your help!

30 plus years ago my mom (Cindy) was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (an inherited connective tissue disorder)...needless to say she has spent the last 30 years in pain and discomfort, having had around 50 surgeries.  Mom and Dad (Rodney) have embraced this trial and have done so without complaint! 
Recently mom was diagnosed with Renal Cell Kidney Cancer. It has spread rapidly into her liver and is incureable.    The weight of this new diagnosis and having to see mom go through this is taking its toll on dad and I would love to be able to help him take care of mom.   My family and I (family of 7 in the picture...Me-John, Wife-Brook, kids: Boston, Trinity, Asher, Harper, and Genesis) live 10 hours away, and are financially not in a place where we can help out...but we are feeling called to be with mom and dad during this time. We are looking for funding not only to help with the growing medical costs and funeral expenses, but also support for my family so that we can be with mom and dad at this time.  We know this amount seems impossible....but thats where you come in.  The goal amount would fund the medical costs incurred, funeral costs, and the cost of my family  moving to be with and help take care of mom .  Please help us be able to be with Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Rod. Thank-you for any financial gift and especially prayers you give during this time!
