Frank and Thelma battle cancer

I’m writing this on behalf of Thelma and Frank Abreu, who are fighting cancer. They have been married for almost 40 years and are dear family friends. They are honest, hard working, generous and kind, church-going, loving people, the foundations of a large and closely-knit family. They have two grown children and several grand children whom they dote on. They treated our kids – Frank is shown above with our daughter—like their own. Frank has worked hard his entire life but living in New York is expensive and medical bills and the costs that aren't covered by insurance are devastating.
Frank was diagnosed with cancer in January. It has spread to his lungs and liver, and he has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment. He has lost a great deal of weight and can no longer walk. He has not been able to work for several months, and Thelma has had to stop working as well in order to take care of him full time. Frank fortunately has Medicare, but insurance does not cover all of the expenses associated with cancer treatment and the illness has been a serious financial burden for them, especially now that neither of them is able to work. We would like to help them get through this sad and challenging time and started this Gofundme site on their behalf. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
