Lighten Carl's Load

My dad is the best dad in the world!  He's funny and caring and loving.  He's kind to everyone.  He has always worked hard and been there for me.  He hasn't had an easy life.  His father was murdered  when he was only 16yrs old.  My sister, his other daughter, died when she was 33.  Him and my mom have been raising her children for the past 10yrs.  There are so many more hardships I could tell you about.  It makes me sad, he's amazing and has never had it easy.
We just found out that he has bladder cancer and it is bad.  They said it is not curable.  He is only 68.   He is still raising my neice and nephew.  They are going to try chemo to slow the spread of the cancer.  I am heartbroken.  I know his medical bills are ALREADY piling up. I know that he is already so worried about my mom, neice and nephew.   I don't want him to have to worry about this too.  He already feels terrible and I would LOVE to just have this weight lifted off his shoulders.  If you could donate to his medical fund I would be forever grateful.  Just one thing I can do for him after everything he has done for me.
