Urban Family Parents

As many of you know, my dad was diagnosed with cancer in summer of 2017. As time has passed and other medical complications arose, he wasn't able to start chemo treatment until a month ago. When he initially began the chemo, the doctors had told him that there are no other treatments they could do and if the chemo didn't work, there were no other options.  After doctors visits on March 19th and 20th 2018, he received the news that the chemo wasn't working and was given 3 months to live. He has been taken off the chemo and is currently at a hospice center to regulate his pain medications. He will eventually come home to spend the remainder of his time there.

With all of this going on, my mom has taken an extended leave of absence from work, without pay, to be home and take care of my dad, as well as be with us kids.
With that being said, my brother and I wanted to start a Go Fund Me to help her with bills as well as any funeral costs we may encounter. While us kids plan to save money ourselves to help, there is no way we can fully pay for everything on our own, along with our own bills. Our hope and wish is that some miracle would happen and my dad would get better. Unfortunately, that is unrealistic. At this point, any amount will help, and if you are unable to donate monetarily, your prayers will be just as helpful.

Thank you for your continued love and support during this difficult time for my family, we all appreciate it more than you know!
