Medical Bills and Living Expense

Hello my name is Josh and I’m hoping you guys can help my father out. On May 03, 2014 me and my roommate (DAD) were grilling chicken and having a great time when all of a sudden disaster struck. I rushed my father to the hospital to find out his Aorta artery split in two. The condition is called a Aortic Dissection and if that wasn’t enough to go through he also had his lungs collapses and kidneys fail.....Then 4 strokes came along and changed everything. Now his health care is telling us (me) that because he's in the hospital for such a long time he will not receive his living expenses pay! He needs to be moved to a LTAC hospital (long term care). Quite simply I can’t afford the hospital bill. Will you please help me keep my father alive?! He is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and fought in the Vietnam War, he's a father of 3 (1 son and 2 daughters). He's way too young to go through this and I do believe he will pull through it all but with disabilities since the strokes affected his vision and motor skills. Please help us... any little bit will help.
