Help the Fagaly family

Hi everyone, my name is Matt Fagaly. I’m 29 year old, mixed Filipinx, and I come from a family of 6. My dad (Bruce Fagaly), mom, and brother Jacob live in Escondido, CA together, while my brother Tim lives in San Diego, and my sister Sarah lives elsewhere in Escondido. On Friday night around 8pm, my 69 year old dad got into a terrible car accident. He had likely fallen asleep at the wheel due to most likely a heart attack, and rammed into another car, which hit another car in front. My dad’s heart had stopped for 25 seconds and they had to perform CPR to revive him. He barely made it that night after waiting hours to be admitted into the emergency room at Palomar Hospital. Since then, he’s had a pacemaker implanted, and today underwent a surgery to get 2 stents put in, but the surgery lasted hours longer because the doctors discovered he needed 3 more stents than they originally thought (which brought it to a total of 5). With our family car wrecked, ambulance bills, two surgeries, and an extended stay at the hospital (my dad is still in the hospital and won’t be discharged til tomorrow at earliest), we’re going to have a lot to pay. At this point I’d say $25,000 is a rough estimate. My dad is the sole income provider for my mom and my brother Jacob, and they rely on him for financial sustenance. He won’t be able to work for some time, if ever, so me and my siblings are doing my best to make sure he’s properly cared for, along with our mom and brother Jacob. We’re not a family with affluence or a large collective income at all (one sibling has been unemployed for a year, one brother works in retail, and my sister just recently obtained a decent job), so any and all help would be appreciated. Please donate what you can, and if you can’t, please share with your networks.
