Dads Emergency Fund

Hello family and friends. Today I am asking for a helping hand on behalf of my mother Maria Martinez.
On tuesday night my dad, Louie Villagran, was having stomach pains and emitted to the E.R. On Thanksgiving day he was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. His one wish was to pass peacefully at home with his family, thankfully for hospice services we were able to bring him home sunday night where he passed away surrounded by his family 8 hours after arriving home.

My dad was a very loving husband, father and grandfather who loved to make people laugh and have a good time. All of us are heartbroken, especially my mother. She lost the love of her life.

Within this last year, my mother was unable to work due to her disability case (still in progress). He was her sole provider. On top of the heartbreak and grief, we are also worried about how she will be able to make it these next few months, as her case is pending.

If anyone can help, we would be forever grateful. Some of the costs we are accounting for are: cremation services, food, bills and mortgage for at least the next few months until we can figure out the next steps.
