Joe LaMastra Medical Expenses

This is for my brother, Joe LaMastra. After having surgery on December 8th, he developed an infection. He has been in the icu since December 9th with many complications including sepsis, pneumonia and renal failure.
He has had 9 surgeries to try to get the infections under control. There will be more to come. His surgeon said today that he will be in the hospital for months. He's a fighter but it's going to be a long haul.
Joe owns his own computer business. We have had to hire people to keep his business running for him. We are also ensuring that he doesn't lose his apartment. What was supposed to be a 5 day hospital stay is now going into its 6th week.
Anything anyone can do to help out would be so appreciated.
