As most of you know my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer late last year which resulted in to him have chemotherapy and radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Early this year we found out that the lung cancer had died but moved to his brain which caused him to have two tumours in the brain. They did radiation in April to try and kill the lesions. One shrunk, one grew. He had an operation on the 19th of June to remove the large Tumor. On Monday the 31st, we were told that unfortunately his tumors in the brain are very aggressive and there's nothing they can do. Ontop of that his lung cancer is growing again, as well he has cancer in the liver and kidney. The 2nd of august, we sadly found out he hasn't got long left to live. He is deteriorating fast. He may not make it to Christmas, and has between a couple of weeks - months, left of life.
I'm an 18 year old mother, who was looking after my dad until it got too much. On top I have a one year old. He will be going into a palliative care unit to get the 24/7 care he needs.
When the time comes, I will be struggling. I'm struggling now. With bills, food and soon, rent.
I will also struggle to pay for his funeral when the time comes. Donations will help pay for his funeral costs when the time comes also.
I have to go into emergency housing as we won't be able to stay where we are.
Please, any donation counts. I hate asking for help. But I'm in urgent need.
