Cancer Isn't The Only Problem Here

As some of you may know, my father was diagnosed with cancer right about two months ago.

For me, it has been quite the rollercoaster these past several months. The same day my son was born was the day I got the news that my father was to begin chemo and radiation soon because of the tumor in his esophagus.

Prior to finding out he had cancer, he spent about two weeks at the hospital (white memorial). Getting tests done because he had not been able to eat well for about two months prior to going into the hospital. The pain in his throat became too unbearable and he finally decided to go to the emergencies and that is why they decided to admit him into the hospital to run all these expensive tests.. where sadly, they wasted precious time from his life and found out nothing.

Luckily, my dad's boss cared enough to send my dad to a good hospital called cedar Sinai where they did the diagnostic.. But as some of you may know.. that place is not cheap at all.. and I understand why now.. the sad way of this life.. is that if you want to have good health you must have money.. So I am asking for donations.. anything helps. It is already so unfair that my dad has to fight this monstrous cancer off but also have to worry about these rapidly increasing hospital bills. My dad has been in the hospital the last month and a half, but before that he has been admitted in and out and has stayed for a while too.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could donate anything. So much is up at stake, when it comes to things he owns in his life. Now, I believe life is more important than the materialistic things in life.. But it breaks my heart even more than what it is already broken, that he will lose what he has worked for his whole life.. the house, and many other things will come crashing down.

Obviously I am not God or a doctor so I cannot help him with his health...and there are no words to describe my uneasiness to that.. But at least I can't try and help with the financial issues..and you can too. So please, once again, anything helps.

My dad is still in the hospital and everyday the cost goes up. This is just a small portion of help.

I will keep all of you updated on his health state.

Thank you.
