Help support a terminal cancer patient

Brothers, sisters and friends, I don't like to do this, but I don't have another option. You all know I've been trying to secure employment for a while. Well, it's come to a point that even if I were offered a job, I wouldn't be able to take it. I'm in too much pain, and the only thing that helps is heavy medication, which doesn't leave me in condition to work.

However, that doesn't stop the rent from having to get paid. My lease is up on November 15 and I have to move out. There is another place in my same subdivision that's immediately available. I am fortunate to be living around the corner from my sister and brother-in-law, who have helped us tremendously. It would make things easy for me to be able to stay near her.

The owner of the house is willing to rent it to me, knowing my condition, providing I can pay up front for the year or most of it. So I am trying to come up with $15,000 by the end of the week so I can secure this place. This would take a huge load of stress off my shoulders.

Brothers and sisters, I have prided myself in being able to provide for my family all these years, and it's a serious blow to my manhood to not be able to do so now. So I'm asking my brothers and sisters for help, whether that's donating or spreading the word to others who can. More information about me is available at the link below. May Allah reward you brothers and sisters in this life and the next.
