prosthesis needed. please help.

November 10th 2017 we went into see our fourth dentist. Eddie had a sore on his gum. We were sent to a specialist the same day. The specialist in mesquite took a biopsy. This whole time we thought it was just an infection.  Then on November 20th we got the results. It is squamous cell carcinoma. We were told to get him an appointment right away with an oncologist.  From there things went fast. We had a consult on Monday and we're told it was big. We were sent to a specialist who is making an obturator for his mouth. This is like a retainer/denture. We were also sent to get CT scans. On Friday we went into the oncologist again. They are going to do a partial maxillectomy. They are removing half of his upper mouth.  We need help covering the costs of the obturator. He will need 3 different ones in just one year. This is totally out of pocket expenses. They range from 6 thousand to 11 thousand dollars.  He is also going to need radiation treatment. We still don't know the cost of this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated so that we can have Eddie as close to normal again as possible.  This has truly been a hard road. Especially during the holidays.  Please keep us in your prayers and any help would be so appreciative.  God bless. Thank you.
