Help the Platow Family

While visiting family on Long Island, NY this past Christmas my cousin's husband, Eric Platow, wasn't feeling well and went to the ER. He found out he had blood clots and within two weeks of that found out he has stage 4 esophigal cancer. Since his diagnosis and returning to his home in Florida he has been hospitalized 3 more times. He can barely eat or drink and recently had his kidneys begin failing due to strong antibiotics meant to kill an infection at his chemo port site. Currently, he is in the hospital on dialysis waiting to get well enough to begin chemo again. Eric and his wife, Rachel, have three boys ages 13, 10 and 2. Rachel is a stay at home mom who is homeschooling the boys. She has great friends and neighbors but no family close by. Needless to say this family needs our prayers and financial help for their mounting medical bills. Please consider giving a small amount to help this family with their bills.
