vol. MTCFD. helping one of our own

Our brother Jim, a volunteer fireman in Mt. Carroll IL, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2014. In February of this year, the doctors discovered another tumor and he underwent surgery again. This time the tumor was deeper in his brain.  He has to have radiation everyday, Monday through Friday, for the next 26 days in Madison, WI and has also developed an infection. He is in need of monetary help so that he makes it to his appointments in Wisconsin with the help of others driving him, continue to pay his household bills, and pay for the medical expenses.  At this point his doctors have diagnosed him at stage 4. He has a wife and the father of two, a son Caden and a daughter Addy. Any help would be very much appreciated.
