I have had the worst day in the world today, so I'm turning to my good friends here on CA for some help. As some of you know, my Dad is dying from pulmonary hypertension, a fatal illness. He's 44 years old. Today I had my Mom crying on my shoulder (the first time I've ever seen her cry) because her boss at her job refuses to allow her to take time off to care for my Dad. This had gone on until she took intermittent leave. Even under this leave, she is more than likely going to lose her job (too much work, this caring between handling a high-stress job and caring for Dad), at the end of which is a dropped insurance policy that covers my Dad, not to mention being the only one to provide for the house. So I am thinking of ways to help, or to get help. I think I'm going to start up a foundation of some sort to help with research. If anyone has any ideas, wants to help or donate, just drop me a line here. I can say I am honestly at my wits end over this matter. I'm 19 feeling 49, and need what assistance I can get.
