MICHAEL HUBER | THROAT CANCER BATTLE

Hi guys, 

My friend Michael is in need of our help.  He was just diagnosed with stage 3 Base of Tongue cancer that has invaded 40% of his throat on the left side.  It has migrated into a couple of his lymph nodes and the tumor is in a really bad spot for any surgery. He is a non-smoker and does not use tobacco products of any kind.  His oncologist says he is looking at 33 rounds of radiation, with chemotherapy treatments in the beginning, middle, and end.   He will be receiving his nutrition through a feeding tube and will need to take 4-6 months off of work.   The side effects of his treatment can include, but are not limited to: 
Skin problems in the area being treated, ranging from redness to blistering and peeling.
Dry mouth.
Worsening of hoarseness.
Trouble swallowing.
Loss of taste.
Possible breathing trouble from swelling.
Tiredness.
Hearing problems.

He has been a hard-working, dedicated employee of Boeing Co. since 1989 and his wife, Jahr, is a talented quilter (but it doesn't pay the bills).  Although Michael has medical insurance, he is not prepared to be without an income to pay for living expenses for 4-6 months.  It would be so awesome if we could lift this burden for him so he can concentrate on ridding his body of cancer and coping with the very painful side effects of treatment.  
Please consider blessing this lovely couple.  They would be forever grateful.
