My Family Needs Help

Organized by: Ruby Smith

Hello guys! I need help because I found out my grandfather who is 50 has type 4 colon cancer. And I know when he passes my family is going to struggle because he is the soul breed winner. My grandma stopped working because of medical complications at 50. She doesn't receive retirement, I think it's because she retired early. I don't know how the whole thing works. My grandmother barley started receiving SSI for her disability of 400 a mouth. Although with a household to support with two children, the money goes quick. Last time I Spoke with them they said they had to pay 30 dollars a dot for his chemo. “That’s outrageous! And that's just for the upfront pay. I thought insurance would cover it all, but I guess not. For the actual treatment, I forgot the amount; I remember being stunned when I heard the price though. Not really sure how they’re paying those prices, they must be dipping in to his saving, he was always known as a frugal man. I remember him coming home so happy when He got a good deal at the supermarket. When he goes, or hopefully “if he goes,” my family won’t be able to support themselves, and I fear the worst. It wouldn’t be so bad if he had life insurance, but he never applied. Not sure why, stubborn, old fashioned, didn’t want to tempt fate; there could be a number of reasons, but all I know is he doesn’t have it and now my family will pay the price. The reason I’m telling you this is because I know there are good people out there, I just know it. Please help by donating to my family, they are really struggling.
Thank you guys for finding this page my family and I will appreciate your help. I just want to save them. It would break my heart if they became homeless. I want to save them from that. Thanks again guys, I hope you can afford to donate for my cause.
