Help Matt Hegarty Fight Cancer

My brother, James "Matt" Hegarty,  has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer coming from the prostate. The original prognosis gave him a lot of years to work. Treatment that should lasted years proved in effective in just weeks and he was advised to get things in order.  The cancer has spread to the whole skeletal structure and measures have been taken to ease the pain.

Because of his inability to work, he needs assistance for all of the expenses he is currently facing; medical bills, insurance, day-to-day care, and his daughter’s college expenses (she is currently a freshman). The goal is $60,000 to cover additional expenses over a three-year period.  If he ever made you laugh or even giggle, please provide whatever assistance you can.  It will be greatly appreciated.
