Prayers for Kody

Our nephew, 25 year old Kody Ryan Calder has recently been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.  Rhabdomysarcoma or RMS, it is an aggressive and highly malignant form or cancer that develops from skeletal muscle cells that have failed to differentiate.  
This is a rare form of cancer, needing chemotherapy and radiation, the closest treatment facility is in Houston, TX at the MD Anderson Cancer Center which is 243 miles from his home in Yantis, Tx.
Kody's parents David and Christy have used all the available income for the last 3 weeks for gas, food, lodging in Houston, just to get the preliminary diagnosis and treatment plan. His parents are out of vacation days so not only are they in debt from medication/lodging, they are also losing money every time they have to miss work. Kody will also be out of work for at least 12 weeks in addition to the work he has missed already for the diagnosis. They've already accrued 7,000 dollars in out of pocket medical expenses.

Please help with impending treatment, lodging, food or gas.
If you have discounts at hotels or gas, anything is welcome.  Please help Kody receive the care he needs by donating whatever you can.

More importantly - please pray for their family.

Thank you in advance.
