Help Joe Shakar strike out Cancer

Please help our Father, our Friend, your colleague and your friend battle Stage 4 Squamous Cell Carcinoma (Throat Cancer).  A tumor was found on my dad's tonsil and lymph nodes. He will be going through many treatments in the next few weeks and bills are starting to become overwhelming for him and his family.   He first needs to have surgery on his neck to move his salivary gland so its not damaged during radiation, at the same time he will have a Chemo port and Feeding tube placed in his stomach. After this surgery, He must heal than start Radiation and Chemo for 7 weeks.   Anything  you can help with is much appreciated.  Funds are needed very soon as to not become delinquent.
If anyone knows my dad, you know he has the biggest heart and loves to please everyone he meets. God Bless you and have Faith....
As strong as he is I thought I would never see something take his strength. PLEASE,PLEASE, GIVE WHAT YOU CAN... Alex Shakar and Ariel Shakar
