I am organizing this gofundme to help support my grandparents who are really struggling. They helped my mom raise both me (22) and my sister (7) while running small businesses and dedicating their life to working to support us all. They do not know I'm hosting this as they would try to convince me not to, and I really want to help them as much as I possibly can. Any donations or shares are extremely appreciated.

My grandmother (Deb) and my grandfather (John) own and work at a restaurant in Pennsylvania that had to close due to Covid-19. It has impacted their business so much that they can't afford to stay open for delivery/takeout. My grandfather has been self employed working in construction as another form of income, but he is in his 60's and it is really taking a toll on his health. My grandmother is a tax accountant for H&R Block and can only take on so many clients per tax season once it starts, and is unable to waitress anymore at their restaurant since they are closed.
My grandfather has been battling with throat/neck cancer for over a year now, and almost died due to cancer removal surgery last year. He recently went in for scans again after having to wait months because of Covid-19, and his cancer has come back in a new area on his neck. Since they lost almost all of their income this year I'm really worried for how they'll be able to afford any treatments for my grandfather. I'm not completely sure on what treatments are even options at this point but I will keep everyone updated as I find out more information. I just want to make sure they can be taken care of as they always tried to do for us.
Again, thank you so much for supporting my family. Things are tough for everyone so do not feel forced to donate at all please.
