Help for our father Hershall

As many may know by now our father, Mickey, was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which has spread to many other parts of his body like his liver, spine, and adrenal glands. He currently is at Vassar in Poughkeepsie bound to the bed due to not being able to walk. The tumors on his spine have made walking almost impossible. We’re hoping that in time he can regain the use of his mobility and maybe be able to leave the hospital and come home. In the mean time we are asking for help financially for his future funeral expenses. His prognosis doesn’t look promising at the money but he is a fighter! He also has many many relatives, such as his only brother, back in West Virginia which is where my dad is originally from and any donations would make it possible for him to go visit those relatives as well. My father also has plans to be buried in his hometown of Hinton, WV next to his parents, so if and when the time comes those expenses are expected as well. I know many of you know my father and a hand out is the last thing he would ask for but at times like this we all could use a little more support.
