Help for Angie & Ed

For those of you that don't know... In February my dad, Ed Budzynski, was diagnosed with inoperable stage 4 non small cell lung carcinoma. Unfortunately, this is not the first time it family had dealt with cancer. My mom is a 10 year beat cancer survivor. My dad has fought a good fight thus far. While undergoing chemo therapy and then following that, radiation of the brain all while going to work day in and day out. After 7 months of undergoing treatment, on October 12th, we were told that the tumor had grown. Four days later on the 16th we found out that the cancer has spread further into the liver and that it was also now in his bones. On that day the doctor told my Dad that he could no longer work or drive. The doctor told him he needs to focus on relaxing and staying as healthy as possible. As of today, November 3rd, my mom took a leave of absence from her job in order to care for my dad full time. Unfortunately, disability simply doesn't cut it.... Being that it is less than half of his income from working. We don't know how long my dad has left here with us and as of right now we still have a few will before we will know what the next step will be in his progress & treatment. In order for him to be as comfortable as possible he needs my mom home with him. With all of this comes great financial hardship and money is the last thing my parents need to be worrying about. I'm asking whoever has the means to help. Whatever you have to give. And if you can't give money please share this post with your friends. My parents are 55 and 57. They shouldn't have to live this nightmare. My dad has always been the provider and played the "manly" role that we all needed. He raised myself, my brother Cole, and Lil Eddie with love and good morals. And I couldn't have asked for a better Pop Pop got my son, David. He absolutely adores his Pop Pop. My little brother is only 17 and has seen both his parents suffer from cancer already. I can only pray that my dad will be able to watch Eddie walk across stage. My parents are good people and don't deserve the game they've been dealt, but they try to make the best of it. All money donated will be used for bills and any upcoming medical and/or funeral expenses.
