Help raise money for Ted and Patricia Grossman as they recover from life saving medical treatment!

In November 2011 my Father Ted was diagnosed with Esophageal cancer. He went through very aggressive treatment of chemo and radiation through the month of December. He was very ill from the treatment and hasn't been able to work since November.

My Mother Pat was the sole caretaker of my Father until January. At this time I came home for a weekend visit and ended up admitting my Mother to the hospital for congestive heart failure. She had open heart surgery to replace and repair 3 heart valves.

In February my Father had surgery to remove the section of esophagus and lymph nodes that were affected by cancer.

Both of my parents surgeries were successful and we are working towards full recovery. However, this situation has taken its toll on my parents emtionally, physically and financially. They have not been able to work since November 2011 and the medical bills are still coming in. The money raised will go towards medical bills from both of my parents surgery and to cover expenses while they fully recover. Thank you for all your help!
