Help John Yelachich Raise his Kids After 3 Strokes

On May 18th, after weeks of numbness and extremely high blood pressure,I finally convinced John Yelachich to go to the emergency room.  We had no idea the hell that would ensue. Before we even had the devastating results,John's boss texted him and fired him for calling off. No....he didn't call off ever, even in extreme pain. This man is not only the love of my life but he's the best father I've ever seen.  5 kids by himself before I came along.  But he knew it was the right thing to do.  Anyway,day by day,the bad results trickled in. He had 3 strokes. Then he has a brain clot. As if that wasn't enough, add 2 80%blocked arteries.  All the while, instead of being scared, he was worried about me, Zander, Deegan, Madi,Braden, and Tyler (who thankfully moved back in to help). John is fighting and I'm damn proud of the work he's doing. Physically, he's not 100%. I'd say 75%. But he doesn't give up.  The same way he doesn't give up on his family.  We've applied for unemployment, food stamps, and have a lawyer to file disability.  Which EVENTUALLY, will be how he will support our family.  Until then, we're grateful for food pantries and our landlord who was sent from God, I'm sure if it.  He wouldn't want me to ask for help as he's humble to a fault.  But he's done his time supporting us and lending a hand to anyone who asks.  Please, in his lowest and darkest time, please help him, even a dollar can buy the kids food for the night.  Those of you who truly know him, know he's an amazing man and didn't deserve all this heartache.  Thank you in advance for your help and warm wishes! Love to all, Heather( John's girlfriend and sole caregiver)♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
