Help Mark and Sandy Urian Recover

Mark and Sandy Urian are hardworking farmers in Kent County, DE. To supplement their income, Mark worked full time at Atlantic Tractor in Clayton and Sandy was a part time secretary for a church in Dover. On 9/19/2017 Mark fell at work. He told his coworkers what happened and worked the rest of the day. The next morning he couldn't get out of bed. He was admitted to the hospital with a broken L4 and cracked pelvis! He was finally released to go to work on January 8th, but he became extremely weak due to low red blood cell count on January 11th and ended up in ICU-Cardiac Unit again for 6 days. From September to January Mark has been admitted to hospital four times for blood disorders and low hemoglobin counts. He received 12 units of red blood cells. He is still waiting for results from bone marrow testing to provide a diagnosis.
Workman's comp VERBALLY denied his claim and because there was no written denial, partial disability would not process his claim. So, Mark hasn't had a paycheck since September, and Sandy is currently not working. 
     They have exhausted their savings and credit and are asking for your help in paying over $3,000 in medical bills so far (thank heavens his company paid his medical insurance).  They are also over $15,000 behind in lost income, which would have gone to pay utilities and monthly bills.
     The hospital is pressuring them to pay their bills now. They urgently need your help to get back to normal. Mark still doesn't know what lies ahead medically.
Our church and friends have donated generously, but additional funds are still needed.
