Joe the Giant needs your help

My family had a big scare today. My brother Joe is a single dad to my nephew Johnny and started not feeling well a week ago, he went to the doctor And they said it was food poisoning, fast forward to last night. He had an abscess burst on his buttcheek. He went to the hospital.  They initially said was a bowel obstruction. 2 hours later they diagnosed my brother with necrotic fasciitis. This is a flesh eating bacteria that effect only 20000 people per years. They rushed him into emergency surgery.  They removed flesh the size of a grapefruit out of his buttcheek. They will have 4-5 other surgeries and will be in the hospital for 4-6 weeks because they can’t just stitch this up. The concern is that he has sepsis. The infection is the problem. 
I dont normally do stuff like this but with medical bills and normal monthly bills, anything that you can give would be appreciate it. We will keep you updated.
