Unexpected medical expenses.

Almost two years ago I married the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, Rosanne. Combined we have 7 children, 4 boys and 3 girls. (Take that Brady Bunch) They keep us really busy. Recently we had a mass that had been growing on her right jaw examined. After a biopsy it was determined to be a tumor, thank God it is benign. However the tumor is continuing to grow and must be removed. After some xrays, the doctors informed us that in order to remove the tumor, they would need to remove her jaw bone and teeth. This was the only way. They will graft new bone in it's place in an attempt to repair the bone and prepare for new teeth after the new bone starts to form. I'm asking for help to pay the out of pocket expenses for the surgery. My insurance is covering the majority of the bill but coming up with the out off pocket cost will be difficult. Rosanne will be missing a lot of work while she recovers. Any little bit will help. Thank you all and God bless.
