Leo Stockey Cancer Funds

Last year, my father was diagnosed with glioblastoma - an extremely malignant brain cancer.  Since then, he's been fighting this disease through chemo, radiation, brain surgeries, and all while still supporting  our family.  In August of this year, he suffered a stroke and underwent a third brain surgery, which left him unable to physically take care of himself.  So, it's my turn to take care of the man who raised me. Despite having insurance, the bills still continue to add up and it's terrifying to think what will happen if we can't keep up.  His life is more important to us than any number, so we're taking a chance and hoping this will help us have more time with our father.

These funds would go directly to paying his medical bills and ensuring he receives the professional care he needs (treatment, aides, equipment).  This disease is terminal and has left our family struggling with new expenses while having our income halved.

Leo is 59 years old, married to my mother, Michele, for 24 happy years, and the father of my brother, sister, me, and a Goldendoodle named Teddy.  He loves the Pittsburgh sports teams and never lets us miss a game.  He's spent his life working hard and asking for little in return for all he's done for us.

Any amount would mean the absolute world and ease a burden that none of us expected to experience so suddenly.  He is the heart of our family, and we want to give him the best chance possible.
