Steve's Medical Bills

Five years ago my Brother-in-law Steve was diagnosed with a very rare type of cancer that required him to have a radical surgery to the roof of his mouth and jaw. The doctors then did radiation to treat the remaining cancer which has continued to cause him problems since that time. The doctors told him and my sister then, if the cancer returned it would be in his lungs and they did not have a treatment.

Several months ago the fear turned into a reality. The cancer was  found to be growing in his lungs. With little hope he agreed to try an experimental treatment. This treatment itself has had some very negative side effects such as high colesteral and liver function problems. After a week in the hospital to treat an infection Steve went home and suffered a fall in which his neck was broke and ligaments were torn, requiring surgery to put in pins from C3 to C5. Steve has been on a ventilator for a week now. 

My sister has been at his side through this whole ordeal. They are self employed but have been unable to work for some time now due to Steve's medical problems and now his hospitalization. Medical bills are mounting and funds are needed immediately to help them. They are not asking for help but I am asking on their behalf and any donations will be greatly appreciated so that Steve can get the treatment he needs to heal from his current injury and find new treatment for his cancer. 

Thank you.
