Financial assistance for parents

A few weeks ago, my dad unexpectedly broke his hip while attempting to bring a microwave upstairs, resulting in a shattered microwave and shattered hip (he was more upset about the microwave lol). Since then, he has had a successful surgery, and has been working on his recovery in rehab as quickly as he can. Although he is making progress, my mom worries that he will not be ready to return to work by the time his medical leave is up, or if he will even be able to return to work when all is said and done. This is causing them to really worry about finances and bills, as his job has been their primary income for about 30 years.  While they figure out what their next steps will be if he cannot return to work, I was hoping to alleviate some of the financial burden they are facing, and surprise them with it as a christmas gift, even just enough to cover one or two hospital bills, or so they can stock up on groceries. I know if they knew about this they would be upset with me, as they have always hated asking for help, but they deserve it. They have always been incredibly hard working people. For my birthday and Christmas, I am asking for anyone to donate or get the word out, as any little bit helps. Thank you so incredibly much❤
