My 1yo sons medical bills

My baby just turned a year old on Sunday, February 22, 2015. We had a small party for him on the 21st of February and had a fun weekend. I had the pediatrician give a referral because I had a small feeling my baby had eye problems like I did as a baby. It was always something in the back of my head that told me I needed to find out he was ok and he wouldn't end up with eye problems. Pediatrician kept on reassuring me that if it didn't go on onto none of my younger sisters or have family history with this that he was well protected in his sack and couldn't go on to him. Well the referral for his eye exam proved that wrong. His eyes don't focus, he forces his eyes onto things, and his right eye just drifts off to the side always. The opthomologist did an ultrasound of both his eyes and showed there was a mass behind each eye. The doctor that took over my son's case defined it to us as bilateral retinoblastoma. It Has completely taken over his right eye and his left eye seems maybe salvageable enough for him to see our of it. Doctor told me since it is in my genes it ran into him and he holds this gene in him too. I am in complete shock because I really believed he'd be fine and wouldn't go through the things I've been through. He will now receive chemotherapy and we will see what the results of these are. Until then if different measures need to be taken then we will know and move onto doing so. We would like donations please because we do currently live with people and just because they see the situation we're in it doesn't stop them from asking for rent money. We pay our own expenses also like the phone, our bed, insurance for our truck, and the monthly truck payments. But I feel like my partner should attend with me some visits because it just doesn't feel right to be in it by myself everytime. I sign the papers for everything and receive the calls but my phone has been blowing up with calls and appointment backed up with appointment that it's just so overwhelming for us. Please do help out even if with a dollar you can, then we'd appreciate the temporary help.
