Grandpa needs help , not giving up!

Barry is a wonderful husband, wonderful father,  and amazing grandfather!  He would do anything for anyone without expecting anything in return.  He worked so hard his whole life not making much at all.   Barry couldn't afford much so when our kids were little my husband made building blocks out of wood and painted them all different colors for  our children  so they could have some toys.   He is well known for his Christmas lights around here.   Strangers travel far to our house just to see his yard during Christmas time and tell him how much they loved it.  My husband would always say it's for  kids to enjoy it.   He goes all out on decorating his yards.  About 6 years ago he had a heart attack and he did not finish putting up his lights.  Everyone around the neighborhood came to see if he was okay because it was just not like him.      So you see my husband always had heart issues but this time it really snuck up bad on him.     He's been having major pressured in his chest  and a racing pulse .  He took a week off of work to try to feel better but he never did and never returned to work. The doctors diagnose him with Afib in January.  He's been switch back and fourth on so many medications since then nothing seems to help with anything.   He had his heart shocked twice.   The doctor convinced him to have an Ablation done to his heart.  The doctor convinced us he would be feeling good and back to normal after this.    We thought he would be out of the woods now.  But he is not.  It seems like he's been getting worst now.  Gone backwards instead of forward.  The pressure in his chest is still there.  So he went for more test's.  The doctors found a black mass and it is cancer.  This has been the worst gut wrenching news we ever got.  It has been an emotional rollercoaster everyday!   I want to try and help raise money for him to catch up on his mortgage and medical  bills and future medical bills.    We want to find him the best doctors for his chance for Survival!  He needs a break somewhere and we need some type of hope things will be okay.  He hasn't been working this whole time and he's scared of losing his house.    We really need the extra help.   An update on Barry is that he is now going for a second biopsy done and also a PET Scan to see where everything is at.  This is going to be a very long haul and disability is taking so long to figure out if he can collect that or not. Please continue to think of him and send a lot of prayers. 28320428_15256499280_r.jpeg   Anything would be appreciated even a prayer can go a long way!!!
