Robert Strzalka's funeral expenses

Hello, I'm Skylar and the daughter of Robert. Robert was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2021. My family moved up here while he was having a partial lobectomy so that he could get help around the house when he came home. He had gone through one round of immunotherapy but unfortunately couldn't do it again due to issues with his liver. The cancer had spread to his brain. Continuing to fight, he decided to go through 2 gamma knife treatments. He was determined to get through it to spend time with his grand babies and other loved ones. In December of 2022, he contracted pneumonia, this led to a 17 day hospital stay. He then went in to a rehab facility for a short time before returning to the hospital on January 23rd. This time the pneumonia was back and really bad along with other infections. He was almost immediately put on a ventilator. Early on January 26th, he was not getting enough oxygen and they made the decision to induce a coma and put him in 100% vent. Within 3 hours Robert passed peacefully. He is loved by so many. Unfortunately he didn't have a retirement or life insurance to help pay for funeral expenses. This now falls on my brother and I. Any donation is very much appreciated. My brother and I would like to thank you for all of the love and support that we have already received from so many!
