Help Vicente's Family care for him

Vicente Gamec is a father of two PS3 boys, Ishmael (just graduated and now at 75 Morton) and Rodrigo. You may know his wife Rebecca. For the past year, Vicente has been living with stomach cancer. Last winter he had his entire stomach removed, and underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy. For the many months as he was undergoing chemotherapy he got some help from his former employer. The cancer is now widely metastatic, affecting his intestines and kidneys. He is unable to eat anything or even drink water, and he is in constant pain. His complex pain management requires hospital stays, and he has barely managed to spend a couple of days at home in the past couple of months. Rebecca is trying to be at the bedside to coordinate his care, with increasing focus on complex pain management.  As Rebecca is the only income earner and is at Vicente's bedside, I am hoping to recruit some support for the Gemec family to help them through this most difficult time. Please help me help Rebecca Rodrigo Ishmael and Vicente. Any help is appreciated- I am hoping to help them while Vicente can still appreciate the community support for his family, and to ease his worry.  Funds will be used for daily needs and for medical expenses related to allowing Vicente to possibly come home with support, though that option is not certain. I will be in touch with Rebecca to ask for other ways we may all be of support to the Gamec family (hosting her boys for play dates and sleepovers? gift certificates to whole foods or other grocery stores?) Please share this campaign with any relevant community members.
