Help Needed for Funeral Expenses

Hello! My name is Ricky Bloomer. I am in the NAVY and currently stationed in New Orleans under hardship to take care of my father who is a two time stroke victim and paralized on his right side also currently diagnosed with cancer. Since I transferred back home my Step-Grandfather was diagnosed with stage 4 Renal cancer. He is currently in hospice and doesn't have much time left. He took care of my grandmother for over 20 years.  She had perkinsons for 15 years before she passed. So even though he is not related to me he is still my grandfather! We have been fighting his cancer for over a year and now its taking him slowly but surely.  Four months ago my grandmother woke up feeling under the weather, so we brought her in to the hospital and that evening she passed away!  Apparently she had kidney and liver cancer, nobody knew at all. While we were trying to accept the inevideble with my grandfather her passing hit us by storm.  He is still hanging on but is ready to meet her in a better place! Since he has been in hospice I have had to start going through the motions of planning his services, although he is a Vietnam Vet his burial services are not paid for and his children have yet to be found and are not in his life for reasons he will not explain.  He has lived with me since he has been diagnosed and this is all on my shoulders!  He has no burial policy, no income. I take care of my mother, father and my 5 yr old daughter. My father was currently diagnosed with stage 1 bladder cancer a month ago and we are currently fighting that as well!  So I do not have the funds to pay for his services. I am not one to take hand outs but I am sincerely asking for assistance, anything will help!
