Terry Simpson Cancer Bill Fund

This is my husband Terry Simpson. He was diagnosed with colon cancer March of 2009. He survived. This year (2014) his 5yr. mark, he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. We have been traveling to The Cancer Center of America since April with all the hope and faith anyone can have. We were told Oct. 14th. that the cancer has spread to the bone, muscles and liver and has begun to grow at an increasingly rapid pace. His oncologist said his liver is almost all tumor now. He has been told that there is nothing medically left to do, and has a life expectancy in the range of weeks to a couple months.
     This is the best man I've ever known! He is 59 years old and has devoted his entire life to taking care of his family. He worked tirelessly 6 days a week, 10-12 hours a day for the last 35 years so he could provide for us, his family.
     He is a wonderful man, a soulmate to me, a terrific father to two sons and a grandfather to a 6 year old granddaughter that calls him super gaddy. This is a man who has worked his whole life, not for a thank you, but to take care of his family because, to him, family is the most important thing in the world.
    We both had cancer in 2009, mine being ovarian cancer. I will be going for a 3rd mammogram in 4 months due to two others in June being abnormal.
Our bills are burying us in debt and I don't know where to turn. I've never asked anyone for help in the 33 years that we've been married but at this point we are putting pride aside and asking for help. We are at risk of losing our farm that he has worked so hard for us to keep.
I feel that if we could get enough to take care of just a few of the bills in our mountain of medical debt before he passed it would help him find at least a little peace knowing that all hes worked for, his family, will be ok.
