Justin's cancer treatment fund

This account is for our Dad Justin Rankin. He is a devoted husband of 28 years to Johanna Rankin, raised 3 children, and has 8 grandchildren. He has worked all of his life, rather it was welding, building, remolding, he has always been the sole provider for his family. In this time he is not able to work any longer and he has to hang up the leads.
Justin started complaining 3 months ago about the side of his neck hurting. He woke up his wife Sunday morning not being able to breathe. His wife called 911. Carlsbad Medical Center said that his airway was not secured and needed to be ventilated to protect his breathing. They decided to fly him to Covenant Hospital in Lubbock TX. After a CT Scan, MRI, Biopsy, & Scope it has been determined that he does have Stage 4 Squamous Cell Carainoma Cancer. It is very advanced and he will need Chemo-Radiation Therapy for several months. 
Since he is looking to be here for so long we are asking for help for food, gas, housing, bills, hospital bills, and just basic necessities. Thank you all for your help. We love you & please continue to pray for him. God Bless!
