Assistance During Cancer Treatment

After suffering a debilitating injury in the Navy I attempted to take care of my family by any means necessary. Working extra jobs and going to school to make myself more marketable took up the majority of my time but I always felt that there would be time in the future to make up for missed birthdays, holidays, and general activities with the family. Well it looks like that may not be the case. 
I have recently been diagnosed with Lengharens disease. It is a blood type of cancer that affects the white blood cells. It causes aggressive tumors to form in the body and mine have started in my jaw, face, sinus, and inner sinus wall near my brain. Hopefully it has been identified early enough to keep it out of my vital organs; because from what I have researched and been told that would pretty much be it for me. 
We had to make a tough decision and uproot the family to Roanoke to be closer to my treatment facility as well as in a lower cost of living area. When we moved my wife is no longer employed so that she can take care of the home duties that I used to do but no longer can. I do however still have to work but find that my income will fall short of what it was before the diagnosis. I have started my preliminary treatment on March 11th 2015 and will begin the chemotherapy on March 23rd 2015. I am asking for assistance with general bills and getting debt paid down so that we are not in such a tough spot should I have to face a blood transfusion or lose the ability to work. I also want to start putting away as much money as possible in the event that the treatment fails. Anything that is given is greatly appreciated.

With Love,
