He has started his treatment as of this last week and I went with him to one of his first procedures this past Monday. While at MD Anderson, I asked my Dad what him and my Stepmom would like for Christmas this year. His response was that I shouldn't worry about getting them anything because due to his upcoming Medical Bills they wouldn't be able to afford to get us kids much of anything. As if his illness alone wasn't enough to break my heart :/
I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what I could get him, as he will probably be in the hospital for treatment this Christmas Day, so of course I want to do it big. I was in the shower this morning and it came to me. I'd like to raise funds to help them pay at least one of their Medical Bills. I have no idea the amount of his Medical Bills and something tells me I don't want to find out, but I thought with the incredible support system I have, that raising $5,000 for them would be a reasonable amount.
I'm calling a huge favor on all dedicated family, friends & co-workers. I NEED your help. Surviving the debt of the Medical Bills with Cancer is half the battle. Please help me help my family in their time of need. Every single cent counts.
Side Note: If you are family on my Facebook, please do not mention this GoFundMe account to my father, as I would like any funds raised to be a surprise Christmas present for him and my Stepmother.
Thank you in advance for anyone who is able to make a donation. You have no idea how much it means to me or how much it will mean to my family on Christmas Day.
Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas!
