Hello and welcome Rafik,
Can't sugarcoat your father's situation. He is on the serious side for sure. The good news, there is always hope and always new ways being thought of to help in his situation. I am glad that you are helping your father work through the situation. Aside from the cancer, is your father's health in general pretty good, or does he have any other serious medical issues?
I wish both you and your father the best, and will remember you both in throught and prayer.
Where are you located?
