Help Ed Beat Lymphoma

My husband Ed and I have been married for 8 years, and not only is he my rock, but he is also an amazing step-father to my 19 year old son Noah and a father of two beautiful fur babies (a beagle called Lucy and a pug called Hooch). He is incredibly kind and caring and has a wicked sense of humor.
For most of the last 17 years he has helped individuals with severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders through his efforts as a Social Worker. His desire to help those most in need has always been one of things that I have admired most about him.

Why am I asking for help?
On July 30, 2018 we received the devastating news that he had Stage 4 Diffuse Large B Cell Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma which has completely turned our lives around in ways we never expected to happen.
This has taken a toll on us both mentally, physically and financially. With each round of chemotherapy (RCHOP) the side effects seem to worsen. He is unable to work as much as he was. While he does have intermittent leave from work, he has used up his paid time off, and the stress of making ends meet is increasing daily.
Any help towards the medical bills and daily living expenses (mortgage, utilities, groceries to name just a few) would go a long way to reducing this strain.
Without these worries we can then focus solely on his recovery and help him fight this disease.
All I want is for him to get through this. He is a loving and generous man, more concerned with helping others rather than asking for anything for himself, but your prayers, thoughts, love, and financial support will mean everything to us.
Thank you for your time and generosity.
