Please help Darin & Terri Albright

Terri's husband Darin Albright has been diagnosed with terminal Cancer.  On April 29th, 2015 Darin entered the hospital for what they thought was a routine appendectomy.  During the surgery he was found to have a large amount of dead gangrenous bowel.  This was surgically removed with 7 lymph nodes that after being sent to pathology were found to be malignant.  Because of his young age and staging of the cancer, they decided to treat this aggressively at the Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida where their daughter is stationed at the MacDill Airforce Base.  This gave them a place to stay during treatment.   There they diagnosed Darin with Stage 3C cancer and he was forced to resign from his job.  Terri has also been unable to work during Darin's treatment.  To maintain insurance, the have been having to pay $1,700 a month to keep up their Cobra.  Because it was only going to be for 6 months they figured they could just use their retirement and then rebuild it once they got back to work.  In January of this year Terri was getting ready to return to work and Darin's employer was offering his job back.  Darin had a repeat Cat scan that showed mets to his lungs and several lymph nodes in his upper body.  His oncologist from Florida referred him to a thoracic surgeon to remove the lung tumors.  He was then informed that the tumors in his lungs were like a firestorm and was now Stage 4 with only months to live.  He is now back on chemo and will remain on chemo for the rest of his life.  He of course will not be able to return to work, nor will Terri during this time.  They could use help for living expenses and insurance.  Please help if you can.
