Hello, on July 26, 2018 my father Silvano Delgado was diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer that began mestasizing to his liver. He proceeded to begin chemotherapy but unfortunately it weakened his immune system and he acquired an abdominal infection that led to sepsis which has caused his kidneys to fail. He is now improving from the sepsis and we are hoping once the sepsis is resolved that his kidneys will recover. However he still has a long road ahead as his treatment will be long and difficult as his cancer was found already mestasized to his liver. He will likely need to do chemotherapy and possibly surgery and radiation after. We are attempting to transfer him to the University of Chicago as soon as possible. Unforunately, my dad was the sole provider for his family when he got sick, as he has three daughters that live with him including me, Jenny. Right now however he has been unable to work for the past month and wont be able to for the foreseeable future while he recovers from sepsis and begins chemotherapy. We ask that his family, friends, acquiantances, etc., please donate as the copays, multiple hospital stays, medications that insurance doesn't cover, specialists that insurance doesn't cover, and living costs while he does not have employment are astronomical. My dad is very young and only 52 years old and we are determined to help him get remission! Please donate what you can and we appreciate all your prayers. There is a separate gofundme in Spanish, this one was created because people wanted to see one linked to his immediate family (wife and children) and so that English-speaking friends and family could have a page where they could understand any updates. Both the spanish gofundme and this gofundme are legitimate and are both contributing directly 100% to my dads cancer treatment. Thank you! Please pray for my family! 

"Then the King will say to those on his right: ‘Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world. 35  For I became hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you received me hospitably;+ 36  naked* and you clothed me.+ I fell sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you visited me.’+ 37  Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words: ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?+ 38  When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked and clothe you? 39  When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40  In reply the King will say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’+41  “Then he will say to those on his left: ‘Go away from me,+ you who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire+ prepared for the Devil and his angels.+ 42  For I became hungry, but you gave me nothing to eat; and I was thirsty, but you gave me nothing to drink.43  I was a stranger, but you did not receive me hospitably; naked, but you did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but you did not look after me.’ 44  Then they too will answer with the words: ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’ 45  Then he will answer them, saying: ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of these least ones, you did not do it to me.’"- Matthew 25:35-45 (NWT)
