Help our dad really live again!! Sober, Happy, and Free of addiction!

This may not be a common reason to have a fundraiser page but, you gotta do what you gotta do for the life of someone you love......My father is very sick, he is a great man with a heart of gold. He just has an addiction to alcohol.
It has gotten very bad to the point where he cannot function without it, he has been in and out of the hospital for the reason of trying to stop drinking on his own. The DT's (delirium tremens) that he is suffering are too severe so he can not recover without professional help, therefore me and my sister have made an effort to get him just that, help. With a lot of love and diligence from his girls he has chosen to check himself into a detox, where he is right now. We have arranged for him a rehab called Odyssey House A non-profit organization in Salt Lake City Utah.
Everything is going well in detox, he has been there for 2 days now, and the plan is to check him into Odyssey House on Tuesday July 10th. Although it is more affordable of a rehab then most, it still is not cheap, $95.00 a day for 90 days, and possibly longer if he feels the need. He doesn't have any medical insurance or work, so my sister and I are reaching out in every way possible to get financial help for him. I want my dad to life a happy healthy life.....We are so happy he has agreed to do this and help himself. We feared that if he kept going down the path that he has, we would lose him. :-( My sister and I are trying our best to pay for his help, but Every little bit I am asking if you feel you are able and wanting to donate.....even $10 will make a difference! LOVE LOVE!!
