Help Capt. Willie beat cancer!

I am starting this fundraiser for Captain Willie and my sister. They have been caring for my nieces 4 children, ages 3-9 y/o, for the last 14 months. 51846732_1602522495646644_r.jpegThis has been a struggle for them financially.  Then 2 months ago Capt. Willie was diagnosed with an aggressive squamous cell carcinoma on his face by his eye. He is completing his 33rd radiation treatment this week. YAY!!!
They live in a small town in Florida with limited medical care. He has had to drive an hour and a half BOTH ways 5 days a week for 27 seconds of radiation at $370 a treatment.  Their savings has been drained. He will need continual monitoring for recurrence as this type of cancer is very aggressive on the face. He is a self-employed crab boat captain and has no insurance.  
He is a proud man who takes care of everyone he knows with a contagious smile and laugh. This year has been stressful to say the least. Please keep them in your prayers!
(I am the sister-in-law of Capt. Willie. I live in KS. )
