Memorial fund for Jim Hartman

My heart is breaking as I post this. 

Please help our family as we need much support and help for memorial and creamation services and other expenses during this difficult tragic time.

My dad was diagnosed with liver and lung cancer, he had a scheduled VATS procedure that turned into a lobectomy to remove the lung cancer Dec 6th. Due to the unequipped surgeons and staff at the facility where the procedure was performed he suffered a hematoma and developed an infection that caused him swelling, shortness of breath, pain and turmoil.

as a result he ended back up in the hospital for a total of 53 days. On Dec 19th he had a second procedure that went seemingly well until he wound up on life support hours later, and in and out of ICU for the duration of his stay.

He was then transported a 3rd time to an awful place called Kindred hospital where he was sent to recover and receieve the needed therapy and again due to the carelessness of the ill equipped staff his condition worsened and as a result he suffered from anxiety, everyday was a battle for air.  Just when he seemed to be getting better he was back on life support and even then still fighting so hard to breathe. On Feburary 3rd his body began shutting down and that evening his suffering had finally come to an end as he went home to be with the Lord after going into cardiac arrest twice. 

As a result of his tragic endurance that took him from us way too soon we are now faced with many expenses that we alone cannot pay. PLEASE help us as we lay our beloved father,husband,grandpa, brother and best friend to rest. Anything helps and everything is appreciated.
