My dad lost his battle with Cancer

Update:
Dad lost his his battle with cancer and my mama needs help with after life expenses. He has no life insurance and my mama took care of him through his cancer treatments.  She has absolutely NO money coming in. Money is very tight and she needs help with bills and food etc through this difficult time.  Please help if you can.  Anything helps and is so greatly appreciated.  We are heartbroken.  I dont want my mom to be stressed about this on top pf losing the love of her life.  Thank you so much.  <3 

My mom and dad really need help.  We just found out that my dad has cancer in his stomach, esophogus, and they have found a spot on his lung. One of his kidneys may be failing as well. He has been in the hospital for 5 five days now and they are going to tell us today what the next step is for treatment.  My dad is the only one working because my mom is unable to work at this time. He cannot go back to his job now. He has already recieved his last paycheck.  She is going to need to stay with him daily to help him during his treatments.  They are going to need help with medical expenses as well as living expenses. They are not going to be able to pay their mortgage and they cannot lose their home during this devastating, and challenging time! Due to the economy in Las Vegas my dad lost a great job in the resession and things have not really recovered there. It has been a struggle and they unfortunately are without medical insurance because of it. My dad is an auto mechanic and has always helped people that were going through their own hardships by donating his time, experience, and hard work. So I am hoping that the good karma he has spent a lifetime building comes back to him in his time of need. They do not have much right now, and any help will be wonderful and so very appreciated. They do not have any savings. We are very worried and shocked and my dad has a rough road ahead of him. I know he is worried about finances and I hope that this can ease his mind some.  Our hearts are hurting. We will not lose faith!  My dad is a fighter!  If you can help with anything it would mean so much to them.  If you can't we understand but can you PLEASE continue to pray for him?  I also ask if you can SHARE this and please ask your family and friends to share too?!  I will be updating here for everyone to see his treatments and progress.  PLEASE PRAY! Thank you all.
