Help for Brian's medical expenses

They say God will not give you more than you can handle...the past few days have been the ultimate test of this for my father and our family. Brian was diagnosed with CLL (a form of cancer) almost 7 years ago. He has been a fighter every step of the way. In the early hours of morning in Monday December 19th, he was rushed to the hospital in severe pain. Since then, his health has quickly declined. At this point his kidneys have begun to fail, he has two infections in his blood, his immune system is at 1% and there are many, many other complications. I am asking for your help. My parents have worked so unbelievably hard for so many years to stay afloat financially and this has put immense strain on their lives, their restaurant and their happiness. My Mother is preparing to lose her partner of 30 years. He is her world, he is mine and my sisters world too. While we are praying desperately for a miracle (because that is the only thing that will change this situation), we are also trying to figure out how to take care of everything financially. I don't know how to ask for help, I hate it, my family hates it and my Dad surely would put a stop to it if he knew I was doing this but I have to. I just have to. If you're reading this, if you have anything you can give to help me help my mother financially so that she doesn't have to worry about money at a time of extreme sadness, it would mean more to you than I could ever express. If you can donate, thank you. If you cannot, please, please pray for my father.
