Help Brian&Ria Pay Medical Expenses

Newlyweds, Brian and Ria got married on April 12, 2014. They have been a couple for seven years. While celebrating their one year anniversary at a weekend getaway in North Carolina, a very unfortunate event occurred. Brian fell very ill at their hotel. He was vomiting nonstop and his speach became incoherent. Ria rushed him to the nearest hospital. She later found out that he has a brain tumor. This news was very shocking, scary, and heart-breaking for her. Brian was transported to a top hospital (Emory) back in Atlanta near where they live, so that he could receive the best medical care possible. They removed most of the tumor surgically, but he must still undergo chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In the meantime, many of their hospital expenses already are unfortunately not being covered under Brian's health insurance, and there will sadly be more expenses to follow. Ria is having to take time off of work due to this tragic event. Brian too will not be able to return to work for an unknown amount of time. The financial situation ahead for them is unknown and stressful to think of. Any financial contribution to help them during this difficult time will be very greatly appeciated. Ria and Brian would not have the heart to ask for help. But  her close friends are asking for them. They are truly two of the most kindest, humblest, and caring people you can know! Please help them in anyway you possibly can. THANK YOU!!
