Helping a friend in need

Hello everyone, James is a family friend, that needs some help financially.
We know him from his current employment position. 
James has been a loyal member of the hotel staff for over 12 years, in the role of Bellman and Driver. 
James ALWAYS goes the extra mile for anyone he meets.
James has had many hardships to endure.  James was kept from working for over a year, due to several evasive surgeries as a result of a throat cancer diagnosis.  The cancer prevents him from speaking clearly and James has to attend speech therapy classes weekly to try to regain some sense of normalcy.  
He is also unable to ingest solid food, so he had a feeding tube surgically inserted.  The feeding tube must be replaced periodically, which is costly.  James is now due for a new feeding tube, but has been putting it off due to lack of funds.  We would like to help him in any way possible.  He is currently going through legal issues that are costly. We love James and want him to be as healthy as possible, mentally and physically .
Our goal is to raise some money to lessen
Some of his current burdens.
Please know that any help will be absolutely appreciated.  James is a caring and humble individual who would never ask for help, so we are asking because he deserves it.
