Support my dad, Wayne Benfant

Hi, my name is Cody Benfant and recently my family found out that my father, Wayne Benfant, has cancer. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), which is an aggressive type of bone cancer. I'm starting this gofundme to help out my father and mother with the bills to come cause my dad is the main income into our household and now he can't work.

Recently, we just finished paying all the hospital bills (totaling over $100,000) for my biological mother who passed away in 2006, when I was 8, so we don't have any savings. She died from breast cancer that spread to her bones. (The lady in the picture above is my step-mother.) I would go find a job to help out, but someone needs to stay home to take care of my dad cause it's really early into the treatment and he is already fairly weak.

My father means everything to me and I don't want to lose another parent. His being stressed about money and what we're going to do isn't helping him to get well. 100% of donations will go to his treatments, the medicine that he needs to live, and the regular bills so that we don't lose our home. So no matter the size, any donation means so much. I not going to beg and I'm not trying to make you feel sorry for me, but all the help right now means the world to me and my family. He's always been there for me and my brother and my little sister, so it's time we are there for him. If you donate thank you so much! Please share this, too, in case someone else would consider donating. God bless my family and God bless yours.
