JD Needs Help

JD has undergone an extensive spinal fusion to correct his severe scoliosis.  The Surgeon said it was the hardest fusion he's done in his career. For the next month or so, his Surgeon also told JD that he cannot work.  He's on his summer break from college at the University of Montana and only has one semester left of a 4 1/2 year Degree in Criminology, Social Stratification, and Inequality, with an accumulative 3.8 GPA.  He has put himself through school, all on his own, and won't receive any grants until the fall, and being that he can't work, will have no income until then.  He is also coming up on his lease and will either be able to stay in his current lease, under a new Landlord, or find another apartment.  I, his mother, have already taken out a loan for this surgery and travel arrangements (for both of us) and cannot afford another loan.  I am his only source of help.  JD and I are not the type to ask for help, from anyone, at any time.  However, I feel this time I need to ask, for him.  If you can help, we would be indebted to you forever.  Anything at all.  We will also pay you back, if requested.
