Papa Leon's Loving Arms

This is for our dad, Leon, who recently went to the doctor for migraines. A tumor was found in his head and he was immediately sent to KU Med center where he had surgery to remove it. He was hospitalized for 6 days. Our dad is self-employed remodeling and maintaining rental houses, which he loves doing, however he now has a ten pound weight restriction and still has a lot of things not finished. Because he is self-employed his insurance is through our mother's employer. He will have several follow-up appointments in Kansas City along with chemo where our mom will have to take off of work to take him. The gas alone back and forth is costly. Our dad is a strong, healthy, selfless, Christian man who is always doing for others. Even while in the hospital he was asking how we were doing. He has 4 kids that will help as much as possible but any donation would be greatly appreciated, even if we could just cover traveling costs.
