My Dad's Recovery

My dad suffered a major stroke a few months ago at only 58 years old and it has done major permanent damage to his brain and will impact him the rest of his life. He has no health insurance and has hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of medical bills now, which he cannot pay. He is self-employed as a real estate agent and a general contractor, and instead of recovering from the stroke, he has had to continue working 10-12 hour days just to try and put food on the table and pay for his car and utilities. He has recently had to move out of our family home into something smaller and more affordable.

A little about the man who has loved me UNCONDITIONALLY my entire life (and believe me I have put him through a lot!)...My dad has spent his entire life taking care of his family and his 3 kids. He is the dad you dream about having, who will drop anything to help you at a moment's notice, who has worked multiple jobs, and long days almost his whole life just to make ends meet and make sure his children did not want for much. He has put me and my brothers (and a lot of other people in his life) before himself for as long as I can remember.

And even though I can never repay him for what he gave and taught me for the past 32 years, I am hoping that with your help, I can give him something back...peace of mind for a few months, a reason to take it easy and rest, money to go to the therapists and neurologists he needs to go to to heal the damage in his brain, and money to pay for basic living expenses, and some to apply towards his huge medical bills. I can never truly explain in words how much this man means to me or how destroyed I would be if I had to live in a world where he didn't exist. As some of you know, my wife and I are also trying to start a family and this would be his first grandchild. I need him to be around to meet him/her, and he needs to be around to see his youngest son get married. Any amount will help, and is truly appreciated. Thank you so much for helping my dad, my lifetime hero, my friend...
