My father, Mark Phillips, was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma in January. He had never been in the hospital before, always has worked very hard as a pipe welder to provide for his family, and has helped countless people throughout his life without recognition. Being in construction, he failed to retain insurance as many of the jobs he has done have laid off before the date he was eligible... I have been feverishly trying to build and sell as many items as I can from home just to give him a little bit each week to pay bills as he has no income coming in and the red tape is horrendous for getting help through our wonderful "system". I am asking for funding to help costs of a BBQ benefit which I have set for March 14th, 2015 and any help to aid me in helping with the bills he has stacking up. Anyone who knows me, knows I have a hard time asking for help, but I have realized I can not do this alone. Any amount is appreciated as he would never ask anyone for anything. Thank you for anything you can help with or leave him a kind word. He has no idea that I am doing this, but I want to show him how much people care.
