Help Pernell and his family with living expenses

Hi, my name is Jennifer Cheshire and I'm the publicist for the Reggae Powerhouse Band, an up-and-coming Reggae band out of Jamaica and the Caribbean Islands. Recently our beloved Pernell Winchester (Kabasi), a vocalist in the Reggae Powerhouse Band, became sick and was hospitalized. Last week he was given the devastating diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. The tumor, which is the size of a lime, is too big to be surgically removed so the oncology team has been working on a treatment plan for him.
Pernell lives in Tobago, a country that has universal healthcare so his medical treatment is covered but he will have extra expenses traveling to and from the hospital for treatment, while he is still able. No doubt there will be other costs relating to his care in the future.
Pernell is one of the sweetest, most humble of the artists I know. He is always ready to work on a jingle, a video, or any other content I need to promote the band, despite working another job to provide for his family. He is now too sick to work and one small wage coming into the house does not cover normal household expenses. Pernell is only 49 yrs old, a loving partner, and father to two beautiful girls ages 11 and 7 and he hopes to see them grow up and have families of their own.
This beautiful man really needs your help urgently as it's now been close to a month that he hasn't been able to work and the bills are piling up.
