Medical Help Needed!

Hello everyone! My name is Kourtni, and I'm doing this for my dad. Let me give you a bit of background. I'm 17 years old, and my dad is on disability. He had prostate cancer, and coupled with arthritis, some days he was next to crippled. He would have to drive two hours away from home to Chicago to go to the VA hospital, and as you know, that's a lot of gas money.

Not only that, but now, his cancer has spread. Now it's in his bones, lungs, spine, and a few other places. Last week he wasn't eating or drinking, and he had to go to the hospital. We then found out he had tumors in his brain as well.

Now, as he's on disabilty and I don't yet have a job (as I'm trying to take care of him until absolutely needed, as I feel terrified to leave him alone like this), we have to do something. He just doesn't have the money to drive to the VA hospital, and even then, he really shouldn't due to his deteriorating mindset. 

This is where this pledge for help comes in. We really need help, and if we can make enough, we can even go to the doctor he used to like a lot without having to deal with the VA. Of course, we'll take what we can get, but that would be the best scenario. Though, since he doesn't have his insurance enough, I'm not sure we'll be able to. We're taking things one step at a time.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Even if you can't donate, I'd love if the word could be spread. I really want my dad to get the help he needs after so much suffering. I just want him to be able to be content again, so he can at least live comfortably. Thank you for your time.
