Help for Yek Dangi and Tika Dangi

On December 8th, Yek Dangi, my ESL student from Nepal was admitted into the hospital. He was so dizzy he couldn't even speak. After a four day stay, and every test the doctors could think of, they decided it was vertigo and sent him home. Yek Dangi was out of work for two weeks. He and his wife Tika work at The Colorado Athletic Club in Boulder. He will be turning 68 in April. Yek Dangi and Tika have been in the US for about two years, and although they are documented, they can't receive Medicare until they have been in the US for 5 years. Now, they have over $50,000 in medical bills to pay for all of the testing and hospital stay. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
