Help with Medical

My father Alphonso "Big Al" Ballina, was diagnosed with Cancer that unfortunately metastasized to other parts of his body. He is stage 4 and had undergone treatment related to his carcinoma. He went in for a standard outpatient procedure due to complications from treatment. The next day he went into cardiac arrest. He was recuscitated but has sustained injuries related to CPR and his condition.

He is currently in the ICU fighting for his life.

He has a long road of recovery ahead of him, and we are forced to prepare for any eventuality, which may be long term healthcare, or a funeral unfortunately.

Please remember him smiling, laughing, and joking, this was how he coped with lifes hardships. He is an amazing father, grandfather, and person, who has helped countless people without asking anything in return.

Hes brought people into his home, supported others endeavors, and tried to be a pillar of strength to those around him. He is a role model in every sense of the word.

Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated by him and our family.
