HELP w/ Chauncey's Medical Bills!!!

In August of 2006 Chauncey was diagnosed with stage 2 Non-Hodgkins Follicular lymphoma. In its early development the disease was very manageable and after treating with Rituxan and radition therapy for 2 years he was declared to be in a remitted state. The cancer stayed in remission for a considerable length of time but after almost 6 years it relapsed in late 2014. As with most types of cancer when it relapsed it gained momentum and became more aggressive which resulted in much needed and much more aggressive treatment with proton therapy and then Chemotherapy. Despite being physically debilitating the Chemo seemed to do the trick and he was back to work in February 2016. Sadly however this was short lived. In March of 2017 Chaunceys doctors informed him that he would need to go back into active treatment. This time treatment would be slightly different, Chauncey can no longer recieve external beam radiation to the lymph nodes at his mandible due to the damage the radition has already caused to his teeth and jaw. Instead they opted for a course of Radiation in the form of an infusuion of the medication Zevalin, along with Rituxan (a monoclonal antibody) and Immuno Boosters.  
Two days ago we found out that the cancer has spread to another lymph node group and is now on both sides of the diapragm.   As a result of his illness and needing to continue treatment he is not cleared to travel for work and is not physically capable of a normal 9-5 at this time. Chauncey is a local cannabis activist and very passionate about its uses and as a result is active in the local Philadelphia Cannabis Community.  He has spent a lot of his time helping patients throughout Philadelphia and Pennsylvania and sadly now he needs our help.  In the last few weeks he has sold his car and liquidated all of his recording studio gear except for the bare essentials to continue being able to work in a limited capacity. Chauncey has moved back home, spent his savings, maxed his credit cards and his friends and family has helped him as much as they are able but his Mom, who he lives with, is on a fixed income herself and the medical bills and especially the cost of living continues to stack up.  They are in danger being evicted if the rent is even 1 day late again, having to choose betwen paying rent and refilling your meds shouldnt be a choice anyone has to make.  
Anyone who knows Chauncey personally knows that he would do whatever he can to help people in need, but unfortunatley for him now he neds our help.  If you can help in anyway even just sharing this story please do. Thank you for taking the time to read this it is greatly appreciated!!
