    Paulieg (and everyone else),

    I don't mean to sound calllous or uncaring, but if he has discontinued treatment because it is not working then giving money for more treatment is not the answer. As a person of faith, when God wants us home, we go no matter how hard we try to prevent it.

    Why don't you set up a trust fund for his daughter and let us make sure she will have what she needs. I am not a student nor a starving artist and helping people is what life is all about.

    May God bless and have mercy on them both.

    The money is for him to do with as he sees fit. Maybe medical bills that he doesn't want to saddle his family with, maybe for trust fund. Hell, maybe even to take his daughter on vacation. Whatever he uses it for is up to him, and I'm sure he will use it well.

    Will do, as soon as I decide to take a break from this damn research paper. I'm so sick of graduate school.

    Being half the world away means whatever I can do is usually limited to sending funds for whatever endeavor, but count me in for further things.
