Linda & Craig's Medical & Bills

Please help my cousin Linda Huston and her husband Craig.  They moved to San Antonio in 2012 to care for her elderly disabled father (my dad’s cousin).  He passed away a month later leaving an older home needing a lot of maintenance, a prepaid burial policy, and no life insurance.  Linda and Craig moved into her dad’s home and found temporary part-time entry-level jobs.  They quickly fell behind on bills including $15,000 of taxes on the home.  They both obtained full-time (but entry-level) jobs with benefits at WalMart in mid-2016 and set up a payment plan for the overdue home taxes.  In September Linda was diagnosed with triple negative aggressive breast cancer with a 8-10 cm tumor.  She underwent chemo and radiation in late 2016 and early 2017 and a partial mastectomy in early 2017.  This meant a large deductible and massive medical expenses.  Linda is now on further radiation & oral chemo.  She’s been off work since January due to the nausea & exhaustion caused by the treatments so her short-term disability is exhausted.  She has no long-term disability so all pay has ceased.  Craig’s entry-level pay is nowhere near enough to cover their basic needs of food, utilities, medical care, and the back payments with interest due on their home taxes (much less catch them up).  Linda has lost return rights to her full-time position and when she is able to return, she may have to take a part-time position.  Craig has cerebral palsy (since birth), epilepsy (with grand mal seizures), short term memory loss, use of only his left hand, and a learning disability, all of which make it difficult for him to advance or apply for a higher-paying job.   PLEASE HELP ME HELP LINDA AND CRAIG!
