Danny's Bladder Cancer Battle

This is Danny. He has been married to Melody Grim since December, 2013. Melody has been 100% disabled with a spinal-cord injury since 2002. In December of 2014, Danny had a large cancerous tumor removed from his bladder, but then no one would treat him. (no insurance) From this point on, they lived as best as they could, with Melody's SS funds, and Danny taking care of Melody, doing handyman work, and playing in "Hectic Red", a classic rock cover-band, in Baltimore. Finally, in 2016, they lost his house, and moved into a spare room at her son's home, in Tampa FL. Over the following months, they sold most of what they owned, bought a nice, used, motorhome, and prepared to come back to Baltimore, for Melody's spinal-surgery in August. THE DAY THEY WERE GOING TO JOURNEY HOME, Danny started bleeding, (yes, out of there again) and on June 30th, 2017, he was admitted to St. Joseph's Hospital, in Tampa. EMERGENCY surgeries on 7/1, 7/2, and a 3rd on July 4th. The STATUS TODAY: Melody still waiting for surgery. Danny has had ONE course of chemotherapy, with THREE more to go before his surgery. (This one will REMOVE his bladder) Afterwhich, 4 MORE COURSES of chemotherapy. They have lapsed the Motorhome insurance, and by midnight, tonight, (10/20/2017) will lapse their auto insurance as well. The water heater needs an ignition-circuit card, and on most other fronts, the Huns are at the gates, and they will lose communications ability as well. These two loving, talanted, caring early-60-year-olds just want to get back in the game. Can you help them? Today?
