Travel, lodging and medical expenses

About the first week of February Rob noticed a small lump under his armpit. At first he thought he had pulled a muscle or something, because of the soreness.    A week later I gave birth to our first child Zachary, who was born 4 weeks early. The next couple of weeks were hectic, between Zack having to go back to the hospital for jaundice and getting the house ready for a new baby.    Robs lump slowly progressed to the point of needing to get it checked out. The initial exam showed the lump was likely just an infection. After further tests and a biopsy of the site, it was determined that surgery was needed to remove the mass. The surgery to remove the mass revealed that the mass and some surrounding lymph nodes contained melanoma.    There is still a lot of unknowns, like the source of the melanoma and stage. We've gotten excepted as a patient at MD Anderson in Houston Texas. Tomorrow morning the three of us will start our journey from Missouri to Texas. We will update this as we know more. Any help with the upcoming expenses is greatly appreciated.
