I catch enough grief from my wife that I don't spend enough time with my kid because of my training. If my son had a life-threatening illness, I would not be running 8-10 hours a week.
This reeks of selfishness, and I hope he gets his priorities in order soon.
Your post reeks of stupidity. You don't think he spoke with his wife about this plan? Many families in similar circumstances will do what is ever in their means to raise extra money, whether it is one parent working overtime or getting a second job. This guy was able to raise it with spending some extra hours per week training and spending less time away from his family to make $5,000 than the average person working overtime or a second job. Those latter instances most likely involve being away in the evenings or weekends for multiple hours. His extra training could have been in mornings before the family wakes up or later at night after they go to bed.
