Need a miracle

For anyone who knows this family they are truly amazing people and would do anything in their power to help someone in need, now the tables are turned and they are finding themselves in need. She is a very proud and private person so out of respect I will not share too much detail.
Dawn's medical issues began about 2 years ago but most recently she had to go on FMLA from her job of over 6 years in June. Unfortunately, her paid time has been exhausted and as of now is unemployed with no income. She has applied for disability but is awaiting approval. 
Her husband's hours have been cut due to lack of work, he has also had to take a lot of unpaid time off to help Dawn get back and forth to dr appts and to heal after surgery. He is struggling with back issues and is putting of his own surgery to keep some income coming in.
They have maxed out the last of the credit to fill the oil tank to heat the house, but it will usually need filled again before the end of winter, and depleted any savings trying to keep afloat since June. Trying to keep bills paid, keep the kids fed, driving back and forth to Morgantown, Columbus, and Pittsburgh for dr appts, and basic household necessities has drained everything. 
I know it's the holidays and money is tight for all, but I'm praying that we can all pull together and help them keep the bills paid and food on the table until disability comes through. Every little bit helps, and I know they appreciate it more than words could express. God bless!
