Help Dad with Pancreatic Cancer Bills!

In December of 2013, my dad, Kevin Jenkins, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. When he told us a few days after Christmas (he didn't want to ruin it for us), we were in shock. Especially since Dad seemed fine. Unfortunately, Dad does not seem fine anymore.  Even worse, the size and placement of his tumor makes it inoperable.
He is currently hospitalized after having surgery to remove a small tumor in his intestines. We are hoping that once he has healed from this surgery, he will be able to eat again. Only once he's stronger will the doctors start his chemotherapy. 
My Dad has been an electrician for nearly thirty years. He owned his own business. Since he is not able to work, we are worried that he will not be able to pay for living expenses on top of keeping up with his insurance payments.
My Dad is young for this type of cancer; he's not even sixty years old. There is the possibility that treatment could alleviate some of his symptoms and extend his life expectancy. We're hoping for the best.
Any help you can give us would be sincerely appreciated and put to good use! Most of all, please keep Dad in your thoughts and prayers!
