Help my Family now that Cancer won

I've been fighting a rare and aggressive cancer since January of 2017. So far I've completed two rounds of standard chemotherapy both have worked well but the cancer has came back every time more aggressive. I have sought out second opinion's at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. They both agree and recommended that I go through a stem cell transplant. To keep it short and simple that process is a very intense therapy option that harvests my good stem cells from my bone marrow, and freezes them. I will then undergo a very high dose of a chemotherapy regemin that kills all the fast growing cells in your whole body. Once chemo is complete they attempt to give me back my own stem cells hoping they can regrow new health cells in place of all the cancerous ones. After the stem cells are reintroduced into my body and all goes well I will need to remain in the hospital for at least 30-40 days in order for my body to recover. I will be 2 hours from home. This will all take place over a 12 week period with about s 3 week break between the tandom treatments. Once I'm dismissed from the hospital I will be very limited on my activities for a minimum of 1 year. I wont be able to provide for my family during this time. This awful desiase has put a huge burden on my family with the travel expences for my wife to care for me as well as the babies back home. In order for my family to spend as much time with me at the hospitol as possible and still making sure my kids can attend school with little interruption when my wife is with me during treatment.
