Dad is gone, help us out.

18th of November 2017, 12:37. He woke up, made the kids breakfast, worked out, took a shower, made breakfast for my mom, took it to their bedroom, kissed my mother good morning, and his heart stopped. Twice 50m freestyle swimming champion of USSR, the best husband and a father of 4 kids passed away so unexpectedly. It was so obvious for me that he will live up to 100 years, yet he didn't live up to 50. 49 is way too young, and I hope the little kids will remember him the way he always was; smiling, laughing, full of positivity, jokes and songs. The medics reacted immediately and said that with their effort, and my mom's immediate reaction, he had a 70% of survival, the highest in this scenario Yet we just weren't lucky. I was wise enough to enjoy every moment I spent with him and now I have the responsibility for looking out for my family. I will do everything I can to support my mom and my brother and sisters. This is why I am doing this, I've never asked for money before in my life, but this is my first step to helping my mother out through this tragedy. Ignore the goal, I just marked it because I had to. Any donations will be much appreciated. I wrote more about him on my facebook wall. Thank you for everyone who suported us already,

Thank you so much.
Anton Pershin.
