Help Joel/fam recover after HCLeukemia

In July of this year Joel Brolin, 27 years old diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia. He has a fiancé and two children (girl-3 boy-1). They are close friends of ours so close we consider them family. A week after Joel was diagnosed he started treatment (hairy cell can never be cured but can be treated). Now he is currently in remission aside from the 1/4 of a % they found in his bone marrow. From the middle of July to just a few days ago Joel had been on medical leave from his job. He was and is insured but his insurance can only cover so much. And for a new family of 4 his out of pocket total exceeds his monthly income. Being best friends with his fiancé I hear their struggle. Its the battle after the battle. Joel needs help with medical bills that continue to come in on top of his monthly expenses to provide for his family as the provider. All of these expenses right before the holiday's isn't looking well for the young family and I'm trying to help my friends have a good Christmas this year without having to worry about their heavy load. Everyone needs help at some point but its harder for some to ask. That's why I'm asking... Please help this young family. They've been through so much and together have fought one of the toughest battles. Thank you!
