Help for Ma & Pa Whelan

Friday July 14 we had to call 911 for Dad because he was having problems breathing.  While doing xrays they seen spots on his lungs.  He was sent home and told to schedule a biopsy.  The following Friday he had the procedure done.  The week after that we found out it was cancer.   A couple days after we were informed it was Stage 4 cancer that had spread throughout his body, with exception to the brain. He spent 5-6 days at St Lukes on the cancer floor and on Tuesday August 1st we had Dad moved to hospice care.

I am hoping to raise money to help cover medical bills, hospice care and/or funeral expenses.

At one point or another this man has had an affect on many lives.  Be it his humor, his temper, his love, his singing.  He has touched many people.
A friend told me a while ago that I need to learn to ask for help (i have heard his voice in my head many times over the last couple weeks).  This is not easy for me but i am asking.....Can you help?  I need help to make this process as easy as possible on Ma.  I don't want her to have to think about the financial aspect of everything that is happening.

Thank you for all the love, prayers and support during this difficult time.
