Last Wish/Beat ALS!

Hi, My name is Jacqueline and my Uncle; Scott Vaszil is dying from ALS. (Lou Gehrigs Disease)ALS is a progressive disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.It will eventually take complete control of his body,taking away the ability to move,speak,eat and breathe.There is no cure,and in the end it will take his life.  He was diagnosed about 5years ago and thus far has beaten all the odds. Every new day brings a new challange,with each day that passes everything gets a little bit harder for him. He is wheelchair bound and confined to his house, he has lost muscle movement in his arms and it is becoming harder and harder for him to speak and swallow.They just purchased a Tobii eye machine which eventually will be the only way he will be able to communicate.The cost of this machine alone is around 20,000 and insurance does not cover the entire cost. Eventually he will need a feeding tube,oxygen etc. and that will only add to the medical bills he already has. My Aunt Lora (his wife) is the sole provider for him and there 3 children. Scotty 9, Tyler 7 and Justin 5. My aunt has to leave early in the morning for work so she prepares the daily necessities for her family since Scott can no longer do so. The boys help get Scott out of bed every morning and ready for the day. They are old enough to understand that there Daddy is sick, and I want to make sure that every minute they have left with him is unforgettable.I want them to be able to live every day without a care in the world about money or finances. My uncle could have weeks,or months, all we know is that it is not long.No one likes asking for money,or asking for help,but I know my Uncle and his family need it.Please help them in any way you can, no amount is to little, every little bit would help. I am eternally grateful for your generosity.
