Family Support Of Paul

Fathers Day weekend I thought I had an earache. I was wrong and since then I was diagnosed with Squamous cell lung cancer stage 4.

I am the sole provider for my family of 5 with no benefits such as sick pay or short term disability. Social Security has a 7 month waiting period before they will help. I have to choose treatment or working to pay our living expenses. In choosing treatment to prolong my life to be there for them, I am unable to work.

With this fund, I am trying to keep the bills paid so I can focus staying healthy and making memories for my children to hold on to. This is roughly a monthly goal for monthly necessities such as utilities and food. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
