Funeral Expenses for Vidar Haugland

It is with a heavy heart that i write to you for your help. My father, Vidar Haugland is days away from losing his battle with cancer. 7 years ago he was diagnosed with liver cancer, and had a liver transplant. In those 7 years that he gained from this transplant he was able to be an amazing grandfather to his grandson Ethan and was able to meet his granddaughter Ava. In August of this year he was admitted to the hospital with back and leg pain. The liver cancer had metastitized and the doctors told us that it was in his bones and there was nothing they could do to help. Since this diagnosis and prognosis was given it’s been a mix of disbelief, denial, sadness and attempting to make sure that a life time of thoughts and love was passed along both to and from “Pop-pop”. Along with the grief of losing my dad, i, along with my family are now faced with coming up with the thousands of dollars it costs to provide a proper and deserved service and burial for my dad.33698772_1539383551283557_r.jpeg 

Anyone who knew my dad my dad knows he is a great person with a kind heart and would help anyone who needed a hand. Please consider helping myself and my family in this time of need. 
Keeping with Norwegian Viking tradition:

“Lo there do I see my father; Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever.”
