Sierra & Chris need help with cancer treatment for his dad!

From Gino Sabato

I am trying to raise money to help Sierra and Chris as they assist Vinny, Chris's father, with transport and expenses related to his chemo and radiation for cancer.

Just two years ago, our son-in-law lost his mother to cancer. She left behind two grown sons, grandchildren, and an incredibly broken-hearted husband of almost 50 years. Our daughter and son-in-law have since been helping his father to learn to navigate life on his own, assisting him with the funds, transportation, and support to do just that. THEN - he got hit with stage 4 cancer as well, and no one saw that coming. These two kids are just trying to start their lives together & learn independence after a few very rough starts. They are doing everything right. They go to work without fail, and have even managed to excel and climb the ladder in their positions amidst all of this. Chris spends his days waking up early to take his father to chemo and other appointments, then rushing to pick up needed groceries and medications before taking himself & Sierra to work - not getting home until midnight, then checking on his dad and helping there - hopefully getting a little bit of sleep before doing it all again. He is putting most of his paycheck into the gas tank to get to all of these appointments, which are not close to home. But still - these kids go to work, pay the bills, and help his father to get HIS bills paid and keep food on the table. They can only do so much. The car keeps breaking down, gas prices and food prices keep going up, and the treatment to keep Vinny alive continues to become more demanding on everyone involved. It's emotionally, physically, and financially crippling. We've been through providing care for a terminally ill parent. We know how challenging this is, and how much it hurts that you can't even take the time to process, grieve, and love your loved one... all the while hoping everyone can maintain their home and basic existence. Please help. They can't do this alone.
