Help my Dad collect what was lost

24095856_1506100008.4063_funddescription.jpgAs most of you know my Dad, Ric Layman, has had a very rough couple of years. He was given a second chance at life when he finally received a liver transplant in Feb. 2016. He had to completely change his life and he was in and out of the hospital for more than two years. He lost his home during that time, too. He wasn't able to work and times were very hard.

Since changing his life and receiving his miracle liver, he has regained his health and was able to begin working. My Dad is an amazing finish carpenter. He has been working hard all summer. He ran into some bad luck when he was paid for his job and then immediately the money he was to use to pay his lumber bill was lost or stolen from his vehicle. He didn't have a chance to pay the lumber bill as the incident happened on his way to take care of it. The police haven't been able to recover the money and it doesn't seem to be that they ever will.

The bill at the lumber yard is due at the end of September. Dad is still working but won't be able to make up for this loss. His family and I are hoping to find some help to make up for this loss. Anything helps.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this and if you're able to help he would be so very appreciative.
