Help Joe Taylor "Shoot Down" Cancer

Anyone that has had the privilege of meeting and speaking with Joe Taylor knows what I am saying, when I say, you can never have a better person on your side!  My nephew Joe, (aka cousin, brother, best friend...etc.,) has always been there for me my whole life & has done the same for so many people during his lifetime and loved every second of doing so!!  If you know Joe, then you know the kind of giving, loving, person he is and always will be!  Well now, Joe needs help and support from all of us, and he needs it quickly!  He is in severe financial trouble due to his recently diagnosed cancer and most recent accident of falling from a 9 foot ladder while attempting to cut branches from his home trees.  
In August 2016, Joe was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's large B cell lymphoma, stage 4.  For six months he has taken chemo every three weeks. In February,  after new biopsies there are still cancer cells. This cancer has been new diagnosed non-Hodgkin's, defused large B cell, lymphoma stage four. In June this year,  while removing a large limb from the tree in his yard, Joe fell from a 9 foot ladder,  crushing his left ankle and heal.  After extensive surgery, he is left with three months recovery, then rehab after that. At the same time, he had to start 25 radiation treatments.
The last radiation treatment is the 20th of this month. He will then be reevaluated. The mass has been shrunk, but what is left is considered resistant.  The mass is located in the middle of his chest, and is rapped around the aorta on the back of his heart.
Joe does have insurance at work, but must pay $6000 out of pocket each year and that doesn't include medicines and special nutrients or food that he can eat. He has been hospitalized four times for the cancer, which has used all of his sick leave and vacation last year and this year. He will also have to pay $6000 this year for the hospitalization and surgery on the ankle and heal injury, $6000 for the cancer treatments this year.
