Help for Tiarne and Selwynn

Hi all. A really good friend of mine (Tiarne) and her little family are having a super hard time at the moment. Her husband went to the doctors for four months complaining about excruciating back pain which had been missed diagnosed as a pulled muscle when a cat scan showed he had a mass completely covering his C7 vertebrae and was immediately hospitalized on the 22nd of June and was put into a neck brace. He then spent 4 weeks bouncing from Sunshine Coast hospital and the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital getting tests upon tests done and was diagnosed with cancer. Which had started from a melanoma and spread inwards turning into a tumor wrapping around his spinal cord and has disintegrated his C7 vertebrae. His scans have also showed nodes on his lungs. He started radiation treatment immediately and is now having immunotherapy as well. He has to wear a neck brace at all times for the rest of his life which means that he can no longer be an electrician and run his own business. He's not aloud to drive anymore and needs help with shaving and getting his medication. Tiarne and Selwynn have 2 boys aged 6 and 2. They are finding it very difficult to make ends meet since centrelink hasn't come through yet and they've burned through their savings. They have recently relocated from Nambour to Caboolture South and once they pay rent they're left next to nothing for the rest of their bills including food, fuel and medications. I'm looking to raise some funds so that they don't have to choose between paying bills, medications, eating or getting Selwynn to his hospital appointments. They're also needing to do maintenance on their car - service and tyres. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
