Donations for Stan Gates Medical

As many of you know, my dad has been diagnosed with some life changing medical conditions. When we arrived at the hospital, he was in pretty bad shape. His O2 was at 60, his heart was in a flutter/afib, his body was filled with fluid, his blood pressure was sky high and many other complications arose from this. He has been diagnosed with Chronic COPD, heart failure, has leaking valves, a blood clot in the leg and will need to be on oxygen and medications for the rest of his life. These are conditions that will never go away. All we can do is keep him comfortable and try and help change his lifestyle. With that being said, Stan (my dad) has NO INSURANCE to help cover all of his medical conditions, let alone the hospital bill for being in the hospital over 2 weeks. His prescriptions alone are over $500 a month. My goal is to help raise enough money for him just to simply help cover his monthly medications. Without them, he won't survive. Any kind of donation would be helpful and greatly appreciated at this time. We are believers in the power of prayer and all of of our prayers were answered by keeping dad with us. It was a tough battle, but dad has pushed through and has shown us how strong he is. He's not out of the woods yet, but these medications will hopefully help him to stabilize. Thank you for all of your prayers. Keep them coming!!
