Medical expenses for Aaron Barrett

Aaron Barrett is a 45 year old loving father, husband, brother, cousin, and son. He is an educator and a coach. He is young and full of life, however he was recently faced with some unplanned devastating news that has impacted him and his family. Aaron has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Since his diagnosis, events have progressed quickly. Aaron underwent a huge surgery last week and was originally expecting to be out of work for only two weeks, however after surgery and further evaluation, it was discovered that Aaron’s cancer has spread to his liver as well. With this progression of the cancer Aaron will now require chemotherapy, an additional surgery on his liver and multiple treatment options. Infection is one of the most common life-threatening complications of cancer and cancer treatment and staying away from children is imperative for his immune system, which will require Aaron to take more time off of work as an educator/coach.
As you can also imagine Aaron is facing extensive medical costs. If you know Aaron, you know he is not a person to ask for anything. He is the person who asks how he can help others but he will need some financial support to pay for his medical expenses and time away from work with the hopes that relieving his financial burdens we can relieve his other emotional and physical burdens as well. 
The shock of this diagnosis at such a young age is devastating news and any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, 

Aaron's loved ones
