Larry and Carol's Cancer Battle

11/20/17- we found out Larry had Prostate cancer.  We met with the surgeon and planned treatment options. We were not prepared for what came next. 
1/10/ 18- we found out I have Breast cancer.  We have met with multiple medical staff and are still in the process of determining which option we are going to take. Surgery for sure, but due to family history, how radical we need to go is being discussed. 
We are surrounded by caring friends and neighbors, and feel very blessed, but realize our current savings and insurance most likely will not cover our "double blessing". 
Larry's surgery is scheduled for this week and mine will be shortly. Since I am the sole breadwinner, we are concerned about not only the hospital, doctor, treatment bills, but our monthly costs as well. 
We know the deductables are at least $2350 for just the one hospitalization, but realize that will be doubled when I go. 
We appreciate any help you can give us to help us in our battle. Our Faith, friends and family are helping. This just seems a bit daunting when you look at it.
