Fighting Brain Cancer

Hello, this is my dad and at the beginning of this year, he was diagnosed with brain cancer after having a stroke. That night was super hard for me as his daughter seeing him like that made me really sad. It started a Tuesday, November 27, 2019, at 1 am he started with a headache,  and later on, we realized he also couldn't really get up we then worried so-called the paramedics and they then took him to the hospital while we were at the hospital, the doctors said that a vein had burst in his brain and that there was a 70 percent chance that he'd live from the moment he was at the hospital he went into a coma. I had no words at that moment I felt so sad. The next day my mom signed a paper giving her permission and allowing for them to operate his head and clean the vein that was still bleeding. But, as the days went by the doctors, said they had found something else ... A tumor called Sarcoma that was cancerous. Since then, he has not been able to return to work due to his health condition. These past few months have been extremely difficult for him our family. My dad is a father of 3 girls me ( Carol ) and my two twin sisters who are 4 years old. He is constantly worrying because he barely has enough money to feed his family. He comes from Guatemala and has a humble family who is in need of your support.  We do not know if he will ever be able to return to work after his diagnosis but prior to this, he was a hard-working family man. My mom works but it isn't enough to support our family. She has been very supportive and we are thankful for her. He is asking for donations so that he is able to persevere through this fight against cancer which is not only a physical battle for him but also an emotional one.  It has been super hard for us because from one day to the next it all changed. Any donations help, thank you all. 

May God bless you!

Hola este es mi padre y al principio del año fue diagnosticado con cancer de cerebro despues de tener un derrame cerebral. Esa noche fue muy dura para mi como su hija viendo lo a el asi me iso muy triste. Todo empezo un Martes, Noviembre 27 del 2019 a las 1am el empezo con un dolor de cabeza. Despues nos dimos cuenta que el no se podia levantar y nos preocpamos entonces llamamos a los paramedicos y se lo llevaron al hospital. En lo que estabamos en el hospital los doctores dijieron que una vena se le avia reventado en su cerebro y que solo tenia 70 por ciento de que iva vivir en ese momento el entro en coma.  Ese momento yo me sentia tan triste ni tenia palabras. El proximo dia mi mama firmo un papel dando su concetimiento para que lo operara de la cabeza y le limpien la vena que todavia estaba sangrado. Pero ase los dias pasaban los doctors nos dijieron que avian encontrado algo mas.. Un tumor llamado Sarcoma que ere canceroso. Desde entonces no ha podido volver a trabajar debido a su estado de salud. Estos ultimos meses han sido extremadamente dificiles para mi papa y mi familia. Mi papa es un padre de tres ninas yo ( Carol ) y Gabriela y Daniela mis hermanas gemelas de 4 años. Mi papa se perocupa constantemenete porque apenas tiene dinero para alimentar a nuestra familia. Viene de Guatemala y tenemos una familia humilde que necesitamos de su apoyo. No sabemos si alguna vez podrá mi papa volver a trabajar después de su diagnóstico, pero antes de esto, era un hombre de familia trabajador. Mi mama trabaja pero no es suficiente para mantener a nuestra familia. Mi mama ha sido un gran apoyo y estamos agradecidos por ella. Pide mi papa donaciones para poder perseverar en esta lucha contra el cáncer que no solo es una batalla física para él, sino también emocional. Ha sido muy duro para nosotros porque de un día para otro todo cambió. Cualquier donación ayuda, gracias a todos.
