My dad is dying of cancer. He is expected to live 3-4 more months. We live in Alabama with our four children. My parents live in PA in a tiny house. We are going to visit tomorrow and staying a week, but I'd like to stay as long as possible so that we can spend as much time with him as we can.
Money is obviously a factor, we just don't have money to just book a hotel suite big enough for me and the kids (dh will need to come back home to work) without going into major debt.
I'm trying to find a living situation that will enable us to see my dad lots this summer without ruining our entire financial future.
Yes, we could take out loans and pay for this summer for the rest of our lives but we'd rather not do that.
Anyway, do any of you know of a hotel chain that offers a discount to family members of people suffering a terminal illness? Any suggestions on how to make this work?
