Please Help out Mike Bigelow

Please help out my recently widowed father Mike Bigelow. The BILLS KEEP PILING UP!!!!!! My step mother Debbie Bigelow (Wife for 40 years, Mom, Elementary school teacher for 32 years, and all around nearly saintly woman with so many charities she donated time and money to) recently passed away on July 9,2017 losing her battle with cancer.  Seven years ago the battle started when Mom was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. She had a complete bilateral masectomy and then reconstruction surgery.. We thought that we had won... We beat it!...But, 2 years later the cancer returned. This time it was a tumor in her right hip. It was at that time she was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer. They started chemo and radiation once again...but 18 months later; we were told that it had metastasized to her brain. My father took her out of town to Charlottesville, Va. so that she could see a specialist for treatments. He unfortunately had to live out of a hotel for that time. It progressed so quickly...Three weeks later...They sent my parents home with a hospice nurse so my Mom could live out her final days at home saying they were sorry but there was nothing else they could do...My Mom died at home in my father's arms....and now...The bills don't stop coming despite the grief  he is dealing with...He's maxed out his credit cards (and says he'll be paying them off for the rest of his life) His house needs work and so does his old truck. I and my sister are sending him as much as we can which sadly is not much :(  Neither one of us live in the same state as our father  but he won't move because my grandmother (who will be 100 years old in October 2017) and his 2 siblings, neices and nephews as well as everyone in his church still live there...so that's where he lives.. He tells me he has no regrets except that he didn't have more time with her no matter how far into debt it would make him..It's My hope  that everyone my Mom or Dad have helped out along the way in life will return the favor...or that everyone that I have helped or entertained along the way will help out...Please Donate what you can to help out this very GOOD MAN. My Daddy Mike Bigelow. Thank you.
