Help fight Michael’s Parkinson’s

My Dad Michael has a very aggressive form of atypical Parkinson’s. The disease progression is very fast and akin to ALS in many ways. He’s currently mostly bed bound, has a feeding tube, and is unable to communicate effectively 99% of the time. My mother is needs help taking care of him. She has difficulties getting him in/out of the car due to his in ability to move his appendages and not being able to lift him. She has to work during the day and has people come out to watch my Dad during the day, but she is having difficulty affording the help. My mother is in need of need of financial assistance to pay for the care givers and to purchase a lift apparatus which helps to lift him up and  maneuver him. The lift itself can cost around $6000 and care givers cost $25 per hour. Anything helps!
