Helping Andrew

I am setting up this campaign for my boyfriend Andrew. Andrew has stage 3 malignant melanoma. He has had 2 major surgeries, one removing the skin cancer and the other all the lymph nodes from under both of his arms. Being out of work has caused the bills to back up, and it doesn't end there. *Chemo is going to span over the next year.

Let me tell you a little bit about Andrew. He has been dealt a bad hand but still continues to be the most kind, caring person I know. When he was in his twenties, he bought a house for him and his girlfriend at the time. In good faith he put her name on the mortgage. A year later she is off to Hawaii to marry another man and now is currently trying to sue him for half the house. wow! Three years ago my sister who has a mental illness needed a place to live, he took her in no problem. She still lives with us and he is part of the reason she is doing so well. He is very positive and very caring toward her. Two years ago our mom passed away from lung cancer. Andrew was the one who shaved off all her hair on Easter 2012. She put up a good fight but the cancer was too powerful. Two beloved dogs also died from a battle with cancer. Last summer my other sisters husband committed suicide, leaving behind her and his 2 boys. Andrew has taken them in too. The boys are 14 and 10 years old. Andrew takes them under his wing, he is a positive figure for them and keeps them happy through their fragile situation. I just want to help take the stress of life and bills off of Andrew so he can have some peace. I know he would really appreciate any help but he is definitely not the type to ask for it. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read Andrew's story. I hope we can all be in a better situation in the future, so we can help other's in need.

All donations will be applied to Andrew's household bills & medications.
