Fundraiser for Dad's Cancer Treatment

Hi I'm Ethan.  I'm 19 years old and attend Northern Michigan University.  Recently, my Dad was diagnosed with bladder cancer.  If you know my Dad, you know what a generous person he is.  He's always eager to lend a hand whenever he can.

I started this fundraiser not only to help pay for his treatment, but also so that he can have groceries and pay bills during this tough time. He's a carpenter by trade, but has been too ill to work, and is receiving no unemployment or federal aid. He's had some help from friends and family getting his fridge filled with fruits and vegetables and natural health supplements, but treatment alone is expected to cost $40-50,000.

This is something I could do to help. I know times are hard for everyone, but if you are able and willing, any donation would help immensely and we would truly appreciate it.
