Help Alfredo Tovar's Funeral Costs

On September 27th, 2017 my father, who was battling Stage 4 stomach cancer, unfortunately lost his battle with the illness. He was diagnosed on June 20th, and from the very beginning, doctors were not very hopeful of the situation. They gave him months to live before succumbing to the disease, but we were determined to put up a fight. Through various natural remedies and special treatments, we worked at battling his cancer. The cancer, however, was spreading to other parts of his body, including his lungs, eventually making him unable to breathe properly. Many different procedures were done to try to correct his breathing, but it came to the point where he had to consistently breathe with a pressurized mask forcing oxygen into him. Doctors gave us a grim outcome of the situation once they saw that his liver was starting to fail, indicating that the end was near. With just one day in the hospice, he passed away peacefully in the early morning the next day.

My father has been a fighter his whole life. Through every hardship he's faced, he took it with his head held high with more determination than anyone I've ever known. Even that his body was weak, he fought with everything he had to beat his cancer, but unfortunately this was one battle he couldn't win. Now I speak on behalf of the family in wanting to give this fighter a proper burial, and that is why I need your help. Between the mortuary, the wake, and the burial, the cost for all these services can get very expensive. We are asking for your help in covering the costs for these services to give him the burial he deserves, anything given will be more than enough and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
