help my girls go to college

It is with deep sadness that I am writing this for our beloved father Joe Marton. On December 1, 2014 he tragically passed away after a long battle with cancer at the young age of 52. If you had the privledge of knowing Joey, you know that he was the type of man that fought with everything he had until the very end. Unfortunately some battles just cannot be won and all of our love and prayers could not save him in the end. Being the doting father that he was, his priorities still lied with his children. His health started rapidly declining and his major concern was his ability or lack there of to help my two younger sisters pay for college. Education was so important to Joey and the thought that he may not be there to contribute to Stephanie and Lily's weighed so very heavy on his heart. This college fund is a cause that was so dear to him and we would like to ensure that his last wish is fulfilled. Please help our dad.

"This is not for me. I have lung and brain cancer. All my money went to this illness. I receive 500 dollars à month to live on and 15 dollars a month for food. All I want is for my two girls to have money for college. Please help me."-Joey
