Planning for my Dad’s funeral

My father Casimiro Villavicencio was diagnosed last October of 2017 with an aggressive brain cancer grade 4  glioblastoma.
hes been fighting this cancer ever since.
this cancer has a prognosis of 12 to 15 months depending on the health of the patient,
even with the best treatment provided at Ucsd 
in La Jolla the cancer came back 2 months after surgery in December and would not go away 
bringing more tumors every time.
my father went into the emergency room early August due to leg weakness,only to find out the cancer had spread to his spine, even after a big surgery he lost the ability to walk something he enjoyed the most. 
3 weeks ago the social worker finally told us it was time for hospice care since the cancer has spread too much and there’s nothing more they  can do since his body was not responding to chemotherapy and even clinical trials and managing the pain was the only thing left to do before the day came.
my father has been in hospice ever since.
every day my father is dying little by little and we need the help from people to help us out with this upcoming funeral.
my father migrated to the U.S from Mexico at the age of 14 looking for work and a better life 
he’s been the reason why his 6 children have had a better life.
he’s been a hard working man who loved to work 7 days a week without ever complaining about it he’s probably one of the most humble and respectful guys I’ve known. he always took care of others before himself, he’s been a strong man great father, husband and grandfather.
My father has had a rough road with this cancer and deserves a good funeral due to all this going on with him and his father passing away last month also from a heart problem we are tied up on money to provide for his funeral
we need help and are asking the community and people around us for help 
thank you for reading my dads story and your help.
