Help my Sister Colleen

My sister Colleen Adcock has just been diagnosed with a malignant neoplasm neuroendocrine extra renal rhabdoid tumor. She will be undergoing a very serious brain operation next Friday. She is one of the most compassionate persons I have ever met. She would do anything for you. Colleen left home at a the age of 16 for good reasons. She was the one member of the family that didn't want conflict and would try to neutralize bad situations. One time in Tennessee when I was about ten, two boys about 16 were giving me a hard time and Colleen at 15, came out of nowhere and beat the crap out of both of them to defend me. She is that kind of person. Colleen moved to Florida and I didn't see her for a few years. She was making it on her own working in restaurants. She had it rough living and working there. While she was working at a drive in restaurant she met Gary Adcock. They dated for awhile, then they married. They both found good jobs, Colleen at a communications company. She was there about 15 years. The company merged with another company and she lost her job. She worked somewhere else for a few years then was called back to her old job but she lost all of her previous benefits(she had to start from scratch). Collen and Gary had a beautiful home outside of Orlando, they both had nice cars, then back in 2008 during the financial crisis they both lost their jobs within a couple of weeks of each other. They ended up losing everything, their home and cars. They both ended up working at Walmart. They struggled. they used up their 401K's, they drove used cars and lived in rental homes. A month and a half ago with the use of their Walmart 401K's they were able to purchase a home again. Three weeks ago Colleen was having problems with her sinuses and went to the doctor and this is when she found out about the cancer. They have used up all their vacation/ personal/ sick time. Gary has had to return to work. There is a good chance that they are going to lose their  home. Colleen has had to work hard her whole life and has never asked anyone for anything. When times were good for Colleen and Gary they would purchase things for my parents who couldn't afford new things, every time they came up to visit from Florida. I love my sister and I'm asking everyone to please help her save her home so during these hard times she has a home to come to. Thank You All So Very Much for anything you can do to help.
