Medical bills/home repairs

My husband Tim is the most generous, selfless, patient, kind man I have ever met and I have been lucky enough to spend the past 16.5 years with him. After a 10-12 hour day of giving himself to his work, he can still find time to bring me flowers, gifts and make dinner for me. He has never and would never ask for anything in return and would assuredly be very upset that I am doing this on his behalf. In June, Tim got the unfortunate diagnoses of colangiocarcinoma and has spent the better part of 3 months in the hospital. I am so very happy to have him home, but am now charged with making the house handicap accessible so that when he regains some strength he can also regain some independence. Despite this diagnosis and the prognosis, he continues to remain positive and even supportive of those around him. Not a day goes by when he doesn’t tell me how lucky he is, and how much he loves me. He has done so much for others, I am confident that because of this, others will return the favor and help him in his time of need. Please help me to support him in making renovations to our home, paying hospital bills, and fitting him with a new wardrobe. Thanks in advance for your support and thanks to all for sending cards; well, wishes and prayers, your positivity has been inspiring.
