My name is Nick and I am from Dublin Ireland but now living in Chicago
Illinois. In October 2014 I got the dreaded phone call from my mother that
my dad had cancer on one of his lungs. For 14 years since I left home to
pursue my dreams of playing soccer it was always the one thing that scared
me. I am very close to my parents and they made many sacrifices for me to
take this journey and by doing so have missed out on a lot being so far
away.

I could not get home until Christmas just gone and spent 3 weeks in Dublin.
Two of those weeks dad spent in hospital due to having pneumonia and
Christmas Day was spent there. Dad was beating himself up as he could not be
home with me and I had to leave before he got out.

He is doing better and home now building his body up to start the radium
asap.

I would love any help from you guys as my dad goes through this treatment to
be able to get home to help my mother.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
