Help Mark & his family fight his cancer battle!

Several weeks ago, Mark found out that he had a tumor in his colon.  They did more tests and found that the tumor is cancerous.  Mark is now battling  Stage 3 Cancer. He has already had many visits to the doctor in Fayetteville in the last several weeks for scans and more testing. He has now started chemo along with several medications. I just found out the other night (because I literally have to be nosey and get things out of my sister, Mark's wife) that Mark is not able to work as of right now and they do not know when he will be able to go back to work.  The situation is not good. I won't go into the details of this cancer because I want to respect their privacy.  It makes me cry sitting here typing this.  
Mark is a husband, a father to four children and the only provider for the household.  My sister has some health issues  and a year ago she almost died. She is now on disability and unable to work. I will never understand why anyone has to go through things like this and why they are suffering right now.   The insurance doesn't pay for all of his medication. He has no income coming in.  He has filed for FMLA .  Their car broke down while in Russellville last week and now the vehicle is totaled.  Right now they have to borrow my grandmother's car or my moms car to make doctor visits. They do not mind of course but gas money to help get them back and forth would greatly benefit them.  I feel helpless so I'm asking for your help. We are all a close family. I know my sister will dislike that I am asking for help for them.  I am trying to do what I can to help.  I am trying to look up ideas for some future fundraisers for them.  A friend suggested starting here first.  If you are willing to help any amount it would be a blessing to them.  I appreciate it!  More importantly, please be praying for Mark and the entire family.  Pray for the new spots they found several days ago. Thank you so much for all the prayers and support. It is very appreciated.
