Mel's loving dad has lung cancer

My loving, big hearted father in law has been recently diagnosed with lung cancer. I want nothing more than to bring his daughter (my wife-Melanie Mayes) to be with her dad when it counts the most. Melanie's dad lives in Australia and Melanie lives in San Antonio, Texas. It costs about $3000 to travel back to Australia to be with her dad. We are up to our necks in debt and Melanie won't get paid for FMLA. I will have to solely pay for our mortgage and bills. My dad unexpectedly passed away 2 years ago and I wasn't able to be by his side. I don't want my wife to feel the guilt and regret that I feel everyday. Love, family and faith will beat this ugly cancer. Please help Melanie travel back to Australia to be with her dad and family during his cancer treatment. Any donated amount is greatly appreciated and prayers always welcome. Thank you all for taking the time for reading their story, prayers and for any donated amount that came from the kindness of your heart. God bless you all!
