I'm raising money for my dad’s medications, chemotherapy and doctor appointments. Any amount of money will help. The goal is $5000!

As most of you know, my dad was diagnosed a couple years ago with prostate cancer. Things have been pretty tough for the family these past few months. He was doing well with the medication he had been taking to control the growth of the cancer. He got a grant to be able to pay for the medicine he needed at first and also qualified for social security since he can’t work right now.

About a month or two ago he started to have a lot of pain in his legs and found out that the medicine he was taking had stopped working and the cancer cells got a little bigger. The doctor decided to try 6 sessions of low dose chemotherapy, which he’s doing right now. The pain has started to go away and he’s walking on his own again which is great!

Unfortunately the grant money was used for the first chemo meds and his social security doesn’t cover all the things that he needs. My mom has been working hard to help out and provide for everything but a teacher's salary doesn't cover it all.

The goal to raise is $5000. It would be nice to reach this much but honestly, anything will help. Thanks for everything you've all done for my family and myself. We appreciate the support and love that pours out to us every day!
