Bob needs surgery for cancer

My brother Robert Young was diagnosed with colon cancer last week. He was told he would be going to an oncologist at The Huntsman Cancer Institute. He was told surgery would be scheduled quickly. He apparently was turned down by the institute because , of all reasons, he has not got insurance. I can give many reasons for not having insurance but the number one and very sad reason he does not have insurance is because he cannot afford it, $900 a month was the cheapest he could get for him and his wife, and due to raising 2 grandchildren and a handicapped son that was not possible to pay, so his wife and himself went without. 
Robert has worked hard all of his life and if he cannot get treatment then his life will be over. If you cannot donate we understand but if you even have some helpful information on a hospital that will help please let us know.
