Help For Angelo

My father Angelo Santiago is a great man, a wondeful Father, a loving Husband to my mother and a great grandpa. Growing up he was a star Baseball player, even played in minor league baseball. But everything changed in 2012 when he started having back problems. He continued to work for two more years as a bouncer with the pain getting worse and worse. It was not intill 2014 that  he let go of his fear of surgey because he couldnt take the pain anymore. On December 1st 2014 he went in to surgery. He had 2 rods ,6 screws put in and 3 disk taken out. Everything was fine for a little while. In the beginning of january he went back to the hospital because he face was droppring and his eyes were twitching, he was immediately flown to Cooper Hospital. Were he was diagnosed with GBS or Guillain-Barré Syndrome which is a rare disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages their nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis and he was also diagnosed with bell's palsy. Because of these events he has been in and out of the hospital 3 or 4 times with a total of about 20 days in the last 3 months. My mother has been taken off work alot to help me look after him and to also take him to doctors and other apoinments as he is no longer able to drive. On top of this i also have my 3 year old niece  to watch. The family does what ever they can to help but times are hard. Because my mom has been taking off work, the bills have been pilling up,our electic bill is up to 3000 alone, and we have also lost one of our cars. I am doing all i can to help around the house and i am looking for a job. It's hard to see him when he has a tube down his throat sometimes. I am just trying to help my family get back on there feet. This was an ideal by me and my cousin Ariel.
