We promise to pay it forward

Hey everyone.

I honestly don’t know where to start. 
My husband was diagnosed with gastric cancer back in January 2019. He got this nasty stuff from infection called h.pylori... something you can get from well water and other places.... my husband was fixing out broken sink on Easter of 2018 and got a fleck of something in his mouth... he was going through pain and bloating for awhile, so much so that it was preventing him from working a full day. We went to see a GI doctor who then did a colonoscopy and endoscopy... findings were an abnormal ulcer.... they went ahead and biopsied it and it was cancer. We feel to the ground together just praying to our lord that this was a dream. Please let this be a dream. It wasn’t- it was far from a dream. We had our moment with it and quickly put out boots on and said - you know what, we got this! 

After 4 rounds of chemo and a chat with the surgeon at UCSF we found out that my husband is not ready for surgery yet as the cancer spread to his diaphragm. The good news is, the chemo is working... the bad news is - we still have to wait for surgery. 

Before this- me and my husband ran a rather successful small roofing business, unfortunately we had to shut it down and within days I was working another 8-6 job to help with out funds. We have applied for food stamps and trying for disability for my husband. its hard because I make in two weeks what he could make in a few days. I am doing all I can to make ends meet right now but I am falling behind. We have canceled anything that’s not worth having( little luxuries in life) and we have been selling things to make up differences. 

I come to the great people that the lord has sent me to and I ask. Please, please help us get through this hard time. I know my husband will make it because the lord has promises to keep, and I am going to hold him to them. 
The money we get on here will go for food, medications, bills and rent. Nothing else. I can cover the kids with clothes and making sure they have what they need, we just need a little extra help.  We promise to pay it forward when he is better in anyway possible! For what the lord lends us we will lend on to others. 

I thank you you for your time and may you and yours be bless with health, happiness and love! 

in Jesus name - amen
