Stage 4 cancer, breadwinner for 6

Liver cancer takes too many! My husband, Ernest, was diagnosed with Advanced Metastatic Melanoma Stage Four Cancer.  Primary cancer still unknown.  He is a UPS package car driver and in 8/8/2018 his truck broke down, leaving him in the hot sun (HEAT WAVE) for 2 hours.   8/15/2018, had an EKG at Urgent care, proceeded to his PCP, Doctor said may be the gallbladder, go directly to ER.  Went straight to ER and 6 hours later, the Doctor said it was 4 masses in his stomach.  No gallbladder trouble.  Still in Hospital on 8/18/2018 the hospital took a biopsy of the liver.  8/22/2018 the Doctor called and diagnosed Cancer Stage Four. Our lives are changed forever!  His last day of work was 8/14/2018, I can’t believe I am saying this….. No job, no money.  Married for 33 years, we planned on taking care of our children, 2 in college and 1 in middle school.  We sold our house in Belmont Hills and bought my parent’s house and added an in-law suite 16 years ago.  My dad passed away 10 years ago.  And my mom still rocks at 83! I really believed my children would enjoy this home.    We may lose it all!  We do not live outside our budget.  We enjoy life, try every day to make someone smile, to help, to visit, to enjoy our family, now we are asking for some compassion, prayers, and good thoughts.  Thank you and God bless you. We are the previous owners of Weiss Kiddie Shop, when students would come in because they lost their tie—we wouldn’t charge them for it.  Times got tough and we had to close the store.  And next he went to UPS for the next phase of his life. Really?  This is a one-time, heart felt, asking….. Please help?
