My grandfather is suffering a lot in the hospital... isn't it ironic? he was a great person, I don't know why world is so unfair sometimes, his songs dont want to take care of him in spite my grandfather was a great father, member from the venezuelan air forces, a man who worked for 12 hours everyday to brought food to his 4 children and his wife, and now he is there, laying on that bed with me and my grandma, wishing that everything comes to a quick end because we dont have the medicines to make him breath well... he has a pulmonary edema he also suffers from other different pathologies, diabetes, hypertension and he has a cardiac pacemaker, I take care of him with my grandma because their other sons never has time to take care of him, or that's what they say.
Actually he needs very expensive treatments, medicines, vitamins, and others to get better, I don't have money to afford this, also I have to maintain my grandma and her medicines, it's very hard for me because I'm watching him die and I cannot do anything to help him, that's the reason why I've been retired from Yours these days, I stay all day in the hospital taking care of my grandma and grandfather, I'm spending all my savings to help him.
My grandpa and all his grandsons, you can see me in the right side of the photograph.
My mother died when I was 1 year old, so my grandparents took care of myself, they are very important persons for me, I really want to help them, and I want to know if Yours community can help me with this matter.
As many of you know, we're passing by an economic crisis here in Venezuela and money almost last for eating, medicines are scarce and expensive, in this situation I have no time for posting because I stay all day in the hospital and when I return I feel so tired and I just want to sleep, I feel frustrated and I don't know what to do because I'm spending from my savings and I have no time. I have 1000 thoughts on my mind and I'm in extreme anxiety, I'm almost alone in this, and I really need your help.
I was searching for a crowdfunding page, I found GoFundme but they need a USA account for deposit the raised funds of the campaign and I can't find a way to have one.
I'm very ashamed for being here asking for your help here , but my grandfather really needs it and he only counts with me.
He's at the Army's hospital of the Aragua St. right now, because his life insurance has expired, hospital has no medicines neither needles or other medical implements, so I have to buy all, they neither have food to give to the patients, hospital has no water most of the time.
So guys, If you can help me with a little bit of money, no matter if it's a little, you'll be helping me a lot, I really want my grandfather to get better.

I am impressed by the generosity of this community, I want to thank you very much for what you are doing for the health of my grandfather, you know the difficult situation for what we are going through and your small contribution of 1 dollar helps me a lot with the illness of my Grandpa, this is a gesture that I will never forget, friends. I will be informing you about my grandfather's state of health, I have just arrived from the hospital, tomorrow I will start buying the necessary medicines at the cost.

My grandfather had both legs amputated, (he had gangrene) and he was "tied" to his apartment and bed for something like a decade until he passed away.
I was still a teenager at that time and I didn't understand many things about the world, I have to say I think I was lucky to have been born into good society and good parents and now, few decades later I am seeing more and more how the things my parents and my grandfather told me are very valuable and true. I miss him very much, I wish I could see him again but such is life.
The day he died, my parents told me he asked to see me, but I was in military school at the time and so I wasn't able to be there, I think about that now and it makes me very sad. I wish my grandfather could get his wish and see me.
So, take care of your grandfather, I wish him... well I wish he gets what he wishes.

@-ed- I can't believe that you're doing this for me, we had some kind of politic discussion last day, and I was about to write you, that I was researching for what you told me, and all that you said it's true, it would be interesting to have a conversation about it later.
Your words made me cry, because now i'm having a lot of memories of my childhood with my grandfather, its very painful for me to see him suffering, its my blood and my flesh that is suffering there, my father, my master, now with your help and all the Yours.org community, tomorrow I'll wake up early to start searching for his medicines (that are very scarce, so I gotta go ask to a lot of places) and give him a good breakfast, he hates the hospital breakfast, so I will please him with something tasty and healthy to eat. I hope he gets better by the pass of this week, I just want to bring him home again.

No worries mate, life is short, I've always wanted to do good and be good (but I know I can be a bit of a prick sometimes also when I end up in heated discussion about certain things).
