Help Veteran Wayne with home repairs

Our names are Edward and  Nora, we are retired Navy Veterans. We would love to tell you about our nephew and niece,  the reason we are doing this fundraiser.  
    Wayne Moran is a disabled Iraqi War Veteran,whose wife; Olivia was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma of the Spine, high level.  She has had surgery twice to remove the tumor from her T10 Vertebrae.  They have a young child at home that Wayne needs to be with, besides making trips to see his wife, still in the hospital 3 hours away.  Olivia was diagnosed with Hodgkins  Lymphoma at age 13, she received chemo for treating it, but that has caused this Sarcoma 28 years later.
     Now for the reason we need your help.  Wayne is an immensely proud man and did not want to ask for help, so we are doing this for him. Their house is not handicapped accessible for her to get around in the wheelchair.  Wayne needs help making their home more suitable for Olivia. He is unable to afford this all on his own or to do himself with his disabilities.  The home repairs that need to be done are: 
Home repairs:

- rip up carpets in house
- widen bedroom doorway
- widen front doorway
- install handicapped shower
- lay linoleum
- ramps and railings

Purchases and install:
- flooring, linoleum $1600
- wider front door $450
- Interior doors $340
- handicapped shower  $5000
- Vanity/ sink $1500
-Railing $400
-Ramps $200
- electric$3000
- plumbing $3000
- lumber & plumbing supplies $300-

    This cause means so much to us and our family because Olivia is an extraordinarily strong individual.
For that matter,  so is her husband  Wayne. She has been through one Cancer  and beat it. Now 28 years later,  she gets Cancer again, but this time a more aggressive one. Throughout all their medical problems,  they have raised 2 sons, sent the oldest off to Air Force, they have kept a positive attitude about  life and always have a smile on their face.  Never a negative word, she even has kept us laughing (when we wanted to cry) while she lays in the hospital bed with IV's running.
    51689458_1601918207533099_r.jpegIt rips at our heartstrings that she must go through  this again,  but this time her family can't be close to her.  Their home is not set up for her to come home and be with their youngest son.  Wayne has been able to see her off and on, but their family have only been able to facetime her. She tells us she has got her boxing gloves on and is going to fight Cancer again.
       If you would like to help,  please donate to this cause. Even if it's a $1, it helps. No amount is too small.

We greatly appreciate all the help we can get to meet our goal of $10,000
