Please Help Me Help Jeremy

For the past 8 years my husband Bill has been struggling with the complications of heart failure brought on by the treatment for an infection around his spine.  This has entailed numerous hospital stays, the latest being three weeks in length. 7 years ago when my son Jeremy lost his job he chose to go to work in the family rental business to help out Bill. Unfortunately, this left Jeremy without health insurance and his diabetes went untreated leading to these complications. Financially, both Jeremy and Bill have suffered because of their health problems and not being able to work.  Both Bill and Jeremy’s health has continued to deteriorate leading to a trans-metatarsal amputation on Jeremy’s right foot in December of 2015 and a below the knee amputation on his left leg in March of 2018. Bill’s health has also continued to deteriorate and he began dialysis in January of 2018.  Jeremy is also in kidney failure and may have to start dialysis in the future.  His immediate financial needs however are for his mortgage payments, physical therapy, a prosthesis to help him regain his ability to walk and a way to help pay for these mounting medical expenses.

It's very difficult and even embarrassing to have to ask for help, but I've done all I can and haven't any more financial means to pay these expenses.
