Tipton Lakes, Montana, resident Kevin O’Leary has taken a stand for his son, Jason, a 22-year-old dental assistant, who died of an aggressive form of cancer last year.
“I feel like this has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” said O’Reilly, who lives in his own apartment.
Jason died in February after battling a rare form of bone cancer.
His family and friends are still in shock.
“It’s one of the hardest things I’ve had to put up with,” he said.
“This has been an absolute nightmare.”
O’Learys son Jason is survived by his parents, Tricia and Peter O’Brien, and a sister, Rachel.
“We’re just devastated,” O’Brien said.
Her family is now working with the family of the patient to get the paperwork together to help pay for Jason’s funeral.
“They are going to need a lot of money,” O-Brien said.
The O’Hearns say they are just grateful that the insurance company will pay for their son’s funeral expenses.
“The insurance company would not cover it,” OBrien said, “and we are hoping to get them to.”
In the meantime, they are keeping the funeral arrangements private.
“People are just shocked,” OReilly said.
