Medical bills

Hi, my name is Robert. Im 42 years old, married with 2 little ones. 5 years ago I received the H1N1 vaccine and had an adverse reaction. Since then, I have spent more time in the hospital than I have at home. It has resulted in me having liver failure, acute kidney failure, my entire colon removed due to advanced stages of Chrons Colitis disease, my spleen and appendix removed. I also have Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura that resulted in numerous blood and platelet transfusions, with the risk of internal bleeding from a simple bump or cut. I have had several bouts of pneumonia and sepsis, and two major heart attacks. My days are filled with doctors appointments, heavy dose medication infusions and a litany of daily meds I have to take just to function throughout the day. They have me on a form of IV chemotherapy to slow the disease down. All of this has resulted in me becoming permanently disabled. I had to close my company that I started from the ground up and my wife took over the full responsibility of taking care of myself, the kids and works two jobs just to barely make ends meet. My life before being sick was all about my family and skateboarding. I have been trying to get better and strong enough to obtain my goal and start skateboarding again. As of 3 days ago, I have developed yet another serious complication that has landed me back in the hospital. Tomorrow, I will have yet another major surgery. My wife is on unpaid leave...AGAIN. And we have to now move out of our home. Due to the mounting costs of all of my hospital stays and such we are asking for any help. Thank you for reading and all of your words of support.
Love always,
Robert and family
