Help for Cubby

My father Christopher Cubbage is extremely down on his luck at the moment. The past three years have been the hardest years of his life. He has battled with injuries with his spine, and mental illness. He is a fighter and is trying his hardest to come out on the other side.
    As many people know my father is a tennis professional and absolutely loves his job. He keeps telling me he can’t wait to get back on the court and teach again. That’s where he is the happiest.
 My father is currently at the University Of Virginia Hospital being treated for some neurological issues he is having.
 Before entering the hospital he had been sleeping in his car. Which sadly he crashed and is now totaled. Again he says, this won’t stop him from getting back on the tennis court.
Being his daughter my heart is absolutely breaking for him. He is such a loving person, who would do anything to help someone in need. He is a little down on luck these days.  

I am currently 4 weeks away from giving birth in upstate New York. He told me today to please call him when I go into labor. My heart hurts that he might not be able to receive pictures of the newest little family member.
Friends, My father (Cubby) has been a ray of light in the life of so many, and now he needs a little of our sunshine on his face. He's fighting physical and mental health battles, all while shouldering the burden of the cost of medical care.  Can we raise a little money to carry some of his burden for him and help him get back on his feet and on the tennis court.

I personally would be forever grateful! A little goes a long way! If you would like to talk further please feel free to Facebook message me.

with lots of love
