Tim’s funeral cost

I am looking for some help to raise money for my family in these next few months to a year that are going to be a struggle for them. First let me give you a background of my dad for those who may not know him. He isn't just your typical guy who woke up went to work and came home. He is an amazing father to two children, an amazing husband and that neighbor who no matter what would always help everyone else before ever thinking about himself no matter how tired from work he may be. He is that dad who took time to round up all the kids and play outside with them. Until 2013 he was diagnosed with cancer called multiple myeloma which is cancer within the cells of the bone marrow. He fought long and hard doing treatment after treatment and was able to get a bone marrow transplant and go into remission. A year passed by and his cancer has returned and this time worse. It has been constant treatment after treatment and blood transfusions constantly just to keep him going. Time has passed by and we finally got the news that they found a donor and he qualifies for a second transplant . He is looking to go in for the transplant around the end of July. He has a new baby grandson that was just born and with this hopefully he can regain his strength again because he is the best grandpa a kid could ask for and deserves to feel like one. With all that being said my mom who has taken so much time off already from work will be missing 4 months and with her absence of leave will not be covered with insurance. They currently have been living only off of my moms income. My parents love always helping others but have a hard time asking for help themselves and that is why I am asking all of you to help my mom and dad get through these next few months so he can focus on his recover and my son can have his grandpa back. Any thing helps. Greatly appreciate all that everyone has done!! God bless
