Medication and illness expenses

35636628_1545656447805585_r.jpegAt age 14 I was exposed the some of the worst words any child should have to hear. My dad was diagnosed in August of 2016 with Motor Neurone disease (MND) at age 41 and was told he had 2 years at most. 

We are now 2 and a half years on. Dad went from a normal, functioning person to someone who now can’t eat, can’t walk, can’t drink, can’t speak and can hardly smile. He is in the care of his parents and they have sacrificed SO much, have lost so much and have watched their son change before their eyes. 

With christmas and New Years coming up, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take a load off of dad and his parents, by gifting them with not only the things they’ll unwrap but gift them with the funds to continue paying for him medical expenses so he has the ability to continue life for as long as possible being as comfortable as possible. 

He has told me that I am the reason he is alive, I am the reason that he has kept fighting and not given up! He wants to see his 16 year old daughter grow into a woman.

As his little girl, his princess, his daughter, I wish to be able to give him the gift of watching me grow.
