Donna's Medical/Family Income Fund

Donna Is my wife of 17 years. Not long after our first son was born, she was dignosed with chrohns disease. she has been battling this for many years, and in the last few years had gotten worst. She goes through peroids of time where her pain is so bad that she is unable to eat. She is hospitalized for days or weeks. she has had several surguries and although she is on FMLA at her job, our income is cut more than in half when she goes into the hospital and is unable to work. She is at Riverside Hospital in Columbus Oh. she has an appointment at the Clevland clinic in November.  I have no idea how much we owe in medical bills, she handles the bills..I'm guessing thousands.. The immediate problem is sustaining an income when she is in the hospital. Every little bit helps.. We hope and pray that her chrohns would go into remissionand she can get back to herself..
  We are both under alot of stress emotionaly and financially. I don't want her to have to worry about how we are going to make our house, car payments on top of everything else. I'm working all the overtime I can, but thats not going to cut it. we need two incomes..
  It's likley she will need another surgurey soon, as well as sustained infusions bi-weekly, probally for life. All the other perscriptions she needs are super expensive as well.
I'd like to create a fund for the immedate problem, being income to keep our house , pay bills,ect.. as well as medical bills, past present and future.
 She would be so much more relaxed to know that our needs are met. She feel like she is "letting us down" or "being a burden".  She would be much less stressed if she knew everything will be taken care of, and that her only job right now is to get better. The situation is rather urgent as far as bills go. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
