Help for Iraq War Veteran

My son, Sgt. Jake Mitchell, was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer within the first year of coming home from Iraq. After 3 surgeries, the cancer has aggressively spread - Stage 3C Testicular Cancer - the highest stage you can go with this type of cancer (equivalent to State 4 in other cancers). He is now taking chemo treatments which make him very sick and make it impossible for him to work. The VA is not very cooperative about helping push his disability claim through - he filed it nearly two years ago. So without an income, he has no way to financially take care of himself. He lives 300 miles away from his family and can really use any help that you can give. He has too many problems to have to worry about where his next meal is coming from. Please find it in your heart to help him through this life-threatening illness.
