Help for Kocan family

My soul mate of 40 years has had to cross many barriers. 9 years ago John was diagnosed with G.O. cancer and beat it only to find out a year ago that he had bladder cancer we were beside ourselves. John has never smoked and has always been healthy. He had surgery to remove his bladder and prostate its been a long seven months. It just breaks my heart to see him struggle. He has always work hard to support his family and to be the best husband and father for our children he is wonderful. I can honestly say John has never questioned God or asked why he got cancer. He has always says that its for a reason . With in the last seven months or so John has been in the hospital several times with infection in the blood it's taken a toll on him like no other. Now he's back in the hospial in Chapel Hill for the same reason, and will need surgery. We have been always proud people and would never ask for help in any way. But financially we can't do this alone anymore so we are asking for help. Even with health insurance the bills are overwhelming. So please share if you will. Our family will always be greatful to all of you.
