Family in need. Cancer sucks!

My Uncle Leith Barrett is a 55 year old Father of 2 lovely boys and a husband to an amazing woman. He was born and raised in Pennsylvania. He graduated from Norwin Highschool in 1981. Him and my aunt have been together since highschool, their relationship is truly one of a kind. Their life was full of happiness, until a cough started. The cough just wouldn't go away. So they went to the doctor. The doctor just thought it was allergies or bronchitis. They didn't think it was anything major. Until it got worse. They did a scan and found a very large mass in his lung. They did a biopsy and it came back positive for cancer. He started to cough blood and it got worse so fast. He went and got another scan, a full body scan. The cancer is not only in his lung, it is in multiple places in his brain, his spine, every one of his lymph nodes and places in his skin. It's just getting worse. They say that their isn't a cure, but they can try and manage it with radiation. He will start radiation next week. He is so devoted to his job that he has worked up until his last doctors appointment where they had to force him to quit his job. The medical bills are really piling up and the struggle for living expenses is rough. My uncle is the happiest person I have ever seen, even with this cancer he doesn't let it get him down. He is always positive with a smile on his face. It's so hard for one to ask for help, but my family sure needs it......
