Riches medical fund

In September 2014, Rich Hopkins (Arlyn Jr.) was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer. Currently he is undergoing radiation and chemo, and will be facing surgery approximately 6 weeks after his radiation is finished. He has been unable to continue working at this time. And will not be able to return to work for up to 1-2 years. So far his prognosis is good, but with no income paying rent and utilities are a struggle, and at the present time he does not have a dependable automobile. We are requesting help to pay rent, utilities, and are in hopes of being able to purchase a used, dependable automobile. 
After surgery he will be receiving stronger chemotherapy treatments, and then additional surgeries. 
Hugs of Hancock county and Blessing foundation have been so kind to assist in providing gas for transportation to all doctors and radiation appointements. 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
