Hi my name is Ruthie I am here asking for help, on July 12th my day started off like any other day , I always call my dad who lives in new york to see how he was doing, conversation wa going great until he broke the news to me … My father sadly told me on top of having heart problems he had found out he had kidney failure, and his kidneys were in bad shape , he said his doctors have offered dialysis but he bluntly said he will not go through that he is tired of hospital doctors and he prefers not to go through all of the suffering, at that moment my heart dropped , he explained to me he is 80 years old and unfortunately he is tired and does not have the fight in him anymore and for me to understand that his day is coming very soon and he just wanted to prepare me. So as his daughter I promised to understand his actions and decisions. I next day called doctors ,hospital hes been in and got confirmation of what’s going on I was informed of he refuses dialysis his life expectancy is shortened by alot with this said they said I go ahead and start thinking of the future and what it might hold. The issues I’m having are as follows this is something that has came.up unexpectedly and my father has noone no family no friends nothing that can help him I live 3000 miles away and all I am trying to do is raise money to pay ahead for his cremation arrangements so when my dad passes away everything is good to go even me being here I’m Oregon and I am sure i will get my dad when the day god calls him. My father was refugee here about 60 years ago given a green card a social security and an identification card , and now that my dad is seeking help seeking his retirement they refuse to give it to him because they claim he is ILLEGALLY here which is NOt the case he has paid taxes for so many years and they have ko way of helping him now. , and because of this we have no financial ways to pay for any of the expenses that are arising, I am a mother of 5 and now have to find a way to come up with this money and I refuse to give up I cannot and don’t want my dad to die and be put anywhere I will live to have him here with me . Please if you find it in your heart to help me get some funds together so I can pay for my dads cremation arrangements it would mean more then anyone cam and will ever know and only God knows how much this will help make sure my dad is taken cared of they day he is called home, since the last time my dad has been in and out the hospital more then 4 times not doing well I just want to be able to take this one burden off his shoulder.
