Zoltan's Cancer A great Man

My sister called me October 6, 2015.. She could hardly speak.. Her husband, My brother in Law was having prior problems while eating he would hiccup and then soon couldn't keep any food down .. My sister insisted that he go see a doctor.. He went in and was prescribed anti acid medication at the visit they scheduled for him to come in and get a scoping of the throat and everything they said seem to look good.. They took a biopsy and then 2 weeks later on October 6 got the devastating news that he had Acardonema esophageal cancer..
A very agressive cancer that has a low survival rate.. He has just started chemo 2 weeks ago and has had complications with blood clotting and has been hospitalized and now is on blood thinners.. He and my sister are have been together since she was was 17 years old.. They just celebrated their 20 year anniversary and both of them have 3 beautiful children under the age of 13..
My sister husband came here from Hungry on a school visa.. He and my sister met in college and fell in love at a young age.. My sisters husband Zoltan is one of the greatest husband and father I know.. He washed cars at a car wash and provided for my sister so she could be a stay home mom.. He would always come home and proudly hand over all his money to my sister to take care of the family.. He always has been a strong man that has never complained about anything and has such a big heart always wanting to please and provide for his family no matter what it would take..
The most beautiful thing that I can share about this family is that in 2007 one of my younger sister got pregnant and due to her mental in capabilities, My sister and her husband Zoltan brought home my nephew and have raised him as their own even after finding out he had been diagnosed with Autism..
Zoltan has played a great role as a father in helping him and giving him love and has a strong bond to all 3 of his children..
I thank anyone who can help my sister and her family during this hard time.. He will be going into surgery and will have a feeding tube for a few months.. He has lost over 60 lbs and sleeps a lot and I do believe that he will pull through.. I just have a hard time seeing them struggle financial and ask all my friends to help support my sister and her family and prayers too..
Thank you ..
