Care and future expenses to come

This is my husband Tim. We met at work 2009 and the blizzard threw us together, literally. Both of of divorced he was always there joking, smiling, making me laugh. Not a day would go by without his hysterical ways of telling me how his day went or stories of his past. 2012 we wed. 2014 we bought a house. He is silly one minute and then my protector the next. We joked often we were both married twice before and I kept ignoring his proposal. 3 years to be trueful. But I finally caved. Third times a charm we would tell friends. We are to peas in a pod. I have never been with anyone who knows when I'm about to stress out before I do. Or when I am overdue for a rest he takes over and cleans house and does all the chores. Never a harsh word has ever come between us, ever. This past June he got a belly ache. Still stubborn he went to work. I stopped by to check in on him. My gut said ER. Sure enough it was his gallbladder. A week later they removed it. There were complications. Bile leaked and a stent had to be placed. June, July, August, & September Tim was in and out of the hospital with abscesses, drains, fevers, infections, and blood clots. After many CTs they saw something else......something not normal. Biopsy was done. Cancer. Cholangeocarcanoma. In short, bile duct cancer. Stage 4 . Metastatic. My heart stopped beating. The doctor who gave him his diagnosis told him to set his affairs in order and sign up for SSI. How cold can these people be. My husband being who he is wouldn't take the "I'm dying thing" and made some calls. Our insurance is only good at one Cancer specalist. Cancer Centers of America in Chicago. They flew us for free and for 4 days did test and scans. Only to come to the same conclusion. My husband is dying. Chemo might slow it down so he is taking that risk. We lost the life insurance policy when he was out due to none payment. Horrible timing. Our bills are over due, hospital ER visit are weekly. His final expenses will need to be covered. I can't come up with money to fly with him if he needs me to for some days he is so sick. He wants to be cremated. He is overwhelmed with leaving behind debt to me. If anyone could spare anything you would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time even just reading my story. lion tames the monster big toys for big boys Chicago Seefood diet doc said.
