Help Darrick with transplant meds

Okay, my dear husband is terminally ill. Suffering from Acides, Chronic Pancreatitis, psorosis, Hepatitis (not c) his kidneys are failing and his stomach is eating itself. He is on the transplant list. They’re transplanting his liver, 1 kidney, and removing his spleen. The Infectious Disease Drs gave him 5 years to live, if he’s lucky. That was 2 years ago. He’s lost almost 100lbs and it’s pretty much all muscle. He is weak, in constant pain, can barely eat and when he does, it comes back up. He’s recently developed a Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis. Which is an infection that has developed because of his emergency hernia surgery. He’s not healing well. This is intense and hard. He has 3 teenage boys that look up to him. (Even though they are way taller) They don’t understand how he can’t do things with them like he used to. Makes him cry. He has to be on a transplant prep medicine that costs $9415/month insurance pays all but $1375 is our responsibility to pay. (Somehow) Neither of us are working right now. I cannot, due to his 24 hour care. We don’t have $ for meds, mortgage, bills, Christmas gifts, food-anything! Any help is appreciated. This is a big step for him. Telling his story makes it weird, and makes it all real. If you know him -he’s a proud, wonderful man... he would do anything for anyone . This time he’s asking for help. Thanks for your support and prayers.
