Please help me get my dad to cancer treatment!

From Vihtori Strider

My dad desperately needs treatment for likely multiple myeloma, but treatment is 1200miles away and he's completely bedbound so we need an air ambulance to get him there! We've exhausted all charity options, please help!

More Info

For years, my dad's health has been rapidly declining, leaving him debilitated, bedbound, unable to sit up, and in constant pain. No doctors have been able to figure out what was going on, and it has been up to the two of us to try everything we could to get him help. We haven't had anybody to help us, and I myself am severely chronically ill, so it's been a real struggle to get anywhere in these past four years since he got sick.

We finally found experts who reviewed his records and have agreed to see him for investigation and treatment of what they believe to be multiple myeloma or some other blood cancer, but they're two states away. We just got scheduled for an appointment in mid-August - unfortunately, due to my dad's level of illness, the only way to safely get there is by air ambulance, which costs on average 20 to 30 thousand dollars.

We've just barely managed to get out of homelessness a year ago after he lost his job due to his illness, and are on state support for food and housing. Our only income is his SSDI, so there's absolutely no way we can afford this on our own... all charity options require you to be able to sit up and be generally stable in health, and insurance won't cover anything until we're already established with the doctors. We have to schedule the air ambulance a week in advance, so the only way to get down there is to raise this money this week! Please help, this is our only hope to get medical care and save his life!

If you have any connections who would be willing to do this flight for free/cheap as a charitable act, please message me and let me know!! My email is vihtori.strider@gmail.com. Thank you so, so much.
