Justin's dad funeral expense

My name is Kelly Thai and I have a dear friend named Justin Do whose dad (Wilson Chan) has passed away on March 5th, 2016 from stage 3 lung cancer. Wilson chan was a great father to two,  and also one of the most caring father's I have ever met. My dear friend Justin has worked hard and served in the military for five years and was shipped out to Afghanistan but due to the long distance Justin made the decision to return back home and help his family through their financial hardships. Justin's dad was laid off and they were going through a tough time financially for nearly two years.

In late January, Justin's dad started to experience a lot of chest pain and painful dry coughs. Growing up with Justin I knew Mr. Chan personally and he was a very strong and independant man. Mr. Chan put up a great fight and he never wanted to worry his family. Due to his financial hardships Mr. Chan stopped paying for his life insurance because he could not afford it and he did not tell his family until he was diagnosed with the lung cancer. Once Justin found out about his dad's lung cancer he tried everything in his power to be by his dad's side and to get his dad the treatment he needed. Unfortunately, Justin's dad experienced insurance issues due and due to the delay of his medi-cal Justin's dad never was able to receive any chemotherapy.

 More bad news occurred that Mr. Chan also had a tumor blocking his airway and he was sick with pneumonia. In just a short span of time family members and friends lost a great man who has done nothing but work hard to provide for his family. My dear friend Justin is staying strong for his mother and sister and this money would be a great help through this tough time. If in anyway i could help I know this would be great load off of their shoulders.

 I just want to thank my friend Justin for serving in the miliatary and being a hero not only for our country but  a strong and caring person that anyone can depend on. This would mean so much to be able to give back to him and his family. The funeral will be held on March 24th.,2016 If we could raise the money as soon as possible it would truly be appreciated.
