Well, at least I'm not broke and they're giving me half a year's income to soften the blow.
Well, that's good at least. Hopefully that should give you a decent buffer and some time to find another job before money gets too tight.
I'm sorry to hear about you losing your job and about your father's cancer, though. That's a lot to deal with all at once. Best wishes to you on finding a new job and to your dad on hopefully making a full and speedy recovery.
