My dad Needs a new space to call home..

Hello ! My name is Marcel ,Im raising funds for my dad Russell  . I currently live in Alberta and My dad lives in BC . My dad is a hard working , hermet styled 62 year old dude with a huge heart , he's always helping others the best he can .He was diagnosed with lung cancer in February of 2020 . After a successful 6 weeks of treatment he was released and allowed to go home . My dad has lived in a 1971 converted school bus for the past 17 years ... Unfortunately because he uses wood heat , after he had returned home ..the dampness in his bus from being away and smoke from the stove was to much for his  lungs and he had  caught pnumonia from it . Now he is in a recovery room in the hospital and doing better, but he cannot return to his bus due to having to use oxygen to be able to breath fully for the time being  . So he has to stay at the hospital untill suitable housing is available . His entire income right now is covering his hospital room at this moment , leaving him with no extra . 
I am raising funds to get a smaller trailer for him ( 22 TO 26 FT)  that is suitable for his healing needs . Specifically it has to be able to be electricly heated. As oxygen is very flammable ,and big enough to be comfortable . I have 3000 saved up to put towards something  but that's sadly not enough for a suitable trailer aswell as to cover costs to get it to him .
I appreciate that you took the time to read my story and hope we can help him through this difficult time, 
thank you to all that can donate , Big or small ,any little bit helps 

Cheers ! 
Marcel .
