Ricks Battle - Medical Bill Relief

On August 20th, my father was sent for an x-ray of his chest for possible pneumonia. The news we received wasn't what we expected.. A possible mass on his left lung. The following Wednesday, he was sent for a CAT scan. Thursday morning (August 23rd) we got the phone call that changed our lives, it was cancer. Biopsy surgery was performed on September 6th which revealed it was stage 2 lung cancer. A PET scan was done on September 11th, which showed the cancer had not spread anywhere else.  Unfortunately the tumor rests between the two lobes in the left lung. The route being taken is a total lung removal (pneumonectomy). Surgery is scheduled for October 24th at Roswell.
The recovery process is prolonged and an estimated time of returning to work is unknown. 
Our father is the main provider in the household, and as medical bills roll in, the stress level rises.
Were putting together a GoFundMe to help with the bills that he has already received and is going to receive once the procedure is complete. 
Thank you in advance for all the help we receive! Our family is grateful.
