Please consider helping my dad, one of the bravest men I know.

My name is Brandi Bucher. My father, Randy Bucher is the most amazing man I know. All of my life he has been a devoted father and husband to my mother. He has always been there for my mom, sister, and I for all of our needs. My father is also a faithful servant of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. My dad has always gone above and beyond to help someone in need on top of his family duties. He has even stopped in the dark of the night to pick up a young stranger in distress, that is just the type of man he is. He has always been my hero and i look to him for guidance and support. In June 2011 he began turning yellow with Jaundice. After a week of symptoms and tests, he went in to the emergency room. Shortly after this,my dad was diagnosed with Ampullary cancer (cancer of your bile duct). This type of cancer unfortunatly, requires him to have an extremly difficult surgery called the Whipple surgery. We live in Chattanooga, TN and in this area there is only one Dr. who performs these surgeries. Another downfall, however, is that this surgeon practices at a hospital where my fathers expenses are only covered 60%. The absolute best place for all of us to go is in Birminham Alabama to U.A.B. My mother, sister, and I long to be by his side while this life-threatning surgery is performed. This surgery requires at leat 2 weeks of hospital time so during which period we will need to be away from home to be with him. As everyone knows, times are truly tough and my dad is worried terribly about how he will cover all of his hospital bills and accomidations for the three of us. Anyone who meets my dad is instantly friends. He has done so much for others and still has so much to do for both the Lord and everyone else on this earth he meets.
