Fiance needs surgery, help w/LE.

My fiance Joey has an auto immune disease called ulcerative colitis. He was first diagnosed back in 2010 and was doing fine until this past year. It came on very quickly and has not been kind to him since. All four feet of his large intestines are severely swollen. The cramps he gets from this are so painful he pukes. He can barley eat because it makes him sick, he has lost 51 pounds in 4 months due to this. Joey has tried diets, and so many different medications but nothing has worked at all. Some of the medications were pills, others shots or infusions. He even stayed at the hospital multiple times for almost a week at a time. The best option for my fiance now is surgery, which will be something called a J pouch. For this he will be out of work for at least six to eight months and will need two surgeries. During that time he will be out of work and he is the sole provider for us and our two young children. Joey is a logger and does plan on going back to work after he is all healed. The only thing we need is help paying the bills until he can go back to work :( If you can please donate it would be greatly appreciated :) just know the money will only be used for bills and our kids needs. We are a non smoking and non drinking home and are very responsible with money, just at this time he has been so sick he can't work as much and then not being able to work during surgery. Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help, it means alot ♡♡
