My dad's cancer medical funds

My Father Eliezer Maldonado was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 tongue cancer. He had a major surgery on April 13th to remove a large mass from the left side of his throat as well as a large portion of his tongue. Because he lost so much tongue he has to eat by a feeding tube that is in his stomach until he learns to swallow again. His treatments entail 6-8 weeks or chemo and radiation and his radiation has to be done everyday up at Smillow Cancer Center in Yale. As well speech therapy and swallow therapy. His medical bills are outrageous right now and that's just doctors visits and surgery, haven't even seen the bills for the chemo and radiation yet but we know it's going to be a lot. My Father can't work and my mom is only able to work part time because she brings him to all appointments making it that much harder to pay these bills! My parents have always been my rock and support system and have helped me all the time! Its my turn to help them out because watching them struggle like this is heartbreaking. It's going to be a very long road ahead of him still and the only thing I want them to worry about is my father beating this cancer and getting better! I don't ever ask for help but in this case I really need it for them! Please any donations would be greatly appreciated and any little bit will help out tremendously! Help me let them know they aren't alone and they have the love and support behind them especially for my Father!
