My Son in law is terminally ill

As many of you know my Son in Law was diagnosed terminally ill , on July9th 2016. Since that date, he was wrongfully terminated 3 weeks before Christmas, do to being sick.  In Decemember he cleaned out his 401K to keep a roof over thier heads and pay the bills, with hope to hold them over till they could find  jobs. Unfortually a job was nowhere insight and his health started to get better, until 3 months ago, when he had another rupture of the pancreas and is down to 1% of living pancreas . Living in Colorado and not having any family to help them, our daughter was doing everything. She was a full time mom, wife, nurse and rancher on there fully functional ranch.  She did everything from chopping firewood so they could stay warm, keeping the house spotless to be germ free, rasing a child, to learning how to do his feedings and medicines through his feeding tube and port/pic line. He was also hospitalized twice a month, every month in to acute care , from 5 to 10 days each trip. The closest hospital was 65 miles each way and had to drive back and fourth twice a day.  With all the stress of everything that has happened in the last 18 months, my daughter has run herself into the ground. In January of this year she started having TIA'S (mini strokes) and seziures. Her health is not well at all now, and they have our beautiful granddaughter Bella who needs her parents. Christina goes days and days with no sleep and not eating just to make sure Trevor and Bella are taken care of. They have sold everything they own and there  60 acre ranch in Colorado was left vacant and put on the market to sell. Right now they are paying bills still in Colorado and in Texas. They had no other choice but to come home, with both of there health not good, they didnt know what ELSE to do. Trevor is a very well educated man, who was doing extremely well , but they had to use all there savings . To be able to go to  the mayo clinic, amoung  visiting  many specialists to try and find a differnt out come.  They have also lost there health care, in colorado and have to wait till September 1st to apply for medicade and food stamps, for the very first time in there entire lives, but it will be end of October  till they will be approved or denied and there medical bills are already over 2 million dollars. They did not want me to do this for them, because they are the people who are always helping people, not the ones asking for help,  or put there business on Facebook . I told them there is no shame in what you are going through, so I did what any mother would do, even tho they said no. They have very strong faith and I thank God ,that he made my daughter an amazing and strong woman, who by the way, has already beat breast cancer twice.  Please I am asking all my friends and family for help. Even if its only a dollar, every penny counts, I know that the total I put , seems like I am asking  for is alot of money,  but that will get them through about one month of bills in two places, plus paying cash for doctors visits and cash for there very expensive prescriptions that they have to have! I would not be asking if this was not an emergancy. Thank you in advance!
Love and Blessings,
Denise McDaniels
