F..k Cancer, Help the Heaney's

My name is Claudine and I'm trying to help my dear friends with some financial assistance during a very rough time. My friend Teri Toal Heaney was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Mucosal melanoma. Mucosal melanoma is a disease with a very poor prognosis and most patients will develop incurable metastatic disease. This disease has now traveled up to her brain and she is having a hard time fighting it. Her husband Rick Heaney is a cross country trucker with Swift Transportation. He is gone sometimes for several weeks at a time and can not be by his wife's side when she needs the most support. He does this to keep a roof over her head. She needs him more now than ever as she has been in and out of the hospital recently because of a rapid decline in her health. He recently expressed to me with tears that he needs to be the one to hold her hand if something happens. 
Helping this loving couple with some financial assistance so he can stay closer to her at this very difficult stage would mean the world to me and them. If we as the great people I know we are could find it in our hearts to help give them some much needed relief would ease their minds. 
Please open your hearts to this couple and let the love pour in! 
I know during this crazy year that things are tight for a lot of us but for him to be able to take some time off and be with his wife without having to concern himself that his house may be foreclosed on would mean the world. 
I'm asking that you share their story and this go fund me page and let's give love a fighting chance, every little bit helps. 
Thank you so much for reading my story and also for donating to a genuinely great couple!
