Help with taxes

MY HUSBAND TERRY ZINK ARRIVED AT STRONG MEMORIAL HOSPITAL IN ROCHESTER N.Y. IN APRIL OF 2012 ON 7-3400 IN THE HEART TRANSPLANT UNIT. HE SETTLED IN PRETTY WELL,GETTING PREPARED TO HOPEFULLY RECEIVE A NEW HEART. HIS WILL TO LIVE WAS AMAZING. HE BEGAN BRINGING IN TOOLS, METAL AND ETC. TO BUILD INVENTIONS HE HAD IN MIND TO HELP HOSPITAL PATIENTS MAKE THEIR LIVES MUCH EASIER. THIS INCLUDED A CALL BUTTON HOLDER, PHONE HOLDER, URINAL HOLDER, WHICH BY THE WAY WAS A REQUEST FROM ONE OF THE HEART DRS. HE HAD ME BRINGING IN POWER TOOLS, A VICE, HAMMER AND ETC. I FELT LIKE THEY WOULD THINK WE MIGHT BE PLANNING A HIEST ON THE HOSPITAL. LOL . AFTER SPENDING HIS FIRST 6 MONTHS WORKING EVERYDAY, HE WALKED THE HALLS OF THE 7TH FLOOR FAITHFULLY EVERYDAY WHISTLING AND MEETING EVERY WALK OF LIFE YOU CAN IMAGINE. PEOPLE DEARLY LOVED HIM. HE WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL THE OTHER PATIENTS TO KEEP THEIR CHINS UP, TRUST IN THE DRS., AND FAR AND FORMOST, KEEP THEIR FAITH. TERRY BECAME VERY ILL ABOUT THE 8TH MONTH HE WAS THERE. HE BEGAN TO HAVE FRACTURES IN HIS BACK, AND 5 BROKEN RIBS. THEY COULD NOT GIVE US A REASON,BUT IT DID TAKE ITS TOLL. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MAN SO DETERMINED TO FIGHT SO DILIGENTLY TO FORGE AHEAD SO HE COULD RECEIVE HIS NEW HEART. HE SUFFERED SUCH TERRIBLE AGONY THAT I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW HE DID IT. ON MAY 6TH TERRY RECEIVED THE GREATEST NEWS POSSIBLE. HE WAS ABOUT TO RECEIVE THE HEART THAT HE SO PATIENTLY WAITED FOR. ON MAY 7TH TERRY R. ZINK RECEIVED HIS NEW HEART. MYSELF AND OUR FAMILY WAS SO HAPPY. DR. MASSEY GAVE US THE INCREDIBLE NEWS THAT IT WENT WELL. THEN IT WAS SHORT LIVED. TERRY HAD TO BE HOOKED UP TO AND ECHMO MACHINE IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HEART. THEY TRIED 3 TIMES TO PULL THE ECHMO OFF. UNFORTUNATELY, IT THREW A CLOT AND CAUSED MY BELOVED TERRY THAT I HAVE BEEN MARRIED TO ALMOST 50 YEARS, A MASSIVE STROKE,WHICH PARALAZED HIM ON THE LEFT SIDE OF HIS BODY.  TWO DAYS LATER THEY CALLED ME AND TOLD ME IN ORDER TO SAVE HIS LIFE I HAD TO GIVE PERMISSION FOR IMMEDITATE BRAIN SURGERY. I TRULY THOUGHT MY WORLD WAS GOING TO STOP. TERRY IS STILL IN THE 7-1600 ICU UNIT OF STRONG MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. AS OF TODAY, AUGUST 16,2014 TERRY HAS BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL FOR 496 DAYS.DR. STORZENSKY TOLD ME TODAY THAT TERRY HAS SUCH AN AMAZING WILL TO LIVE. I ASK EACH OF YOU THAT READ THIS TO PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR TERRY TO LIVE AND OVERCOME THIS TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. BECAUSE WE ARE ON SUCH A FIXED INCOME AND THINGS HAVE BECOME SO VERY DIFFICULT, I AM ASKING FOR HELP WITH OUR TAXES. I AM SO OVERWHELMED WITH THE DIFFICULTIES AHEAD. I THANK ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL FRIENDS, FAMILIES AND ANOYMOUS DONORS THAT HAVE DONATED. THIS IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS I HAVE EVER HAD TO DO. THANK YOU SO MUCH. GLENNA ZINK
