From their gofundme page:
My husband Dick was diagnosed with Colon Cancer Sept. 2009. He has
been treated at MGH since then. He has had 3 major surgeries as well as
several hospital stays due to complications. He has been in chemo for 3
1/2 years. On top of cancer, he has had numerous other related issues,
which require constant visits to the hospital. AND on top of that, he
has had issues with his memory ("chemo brain"), which will limit his
short term memory, often forgetting things that are necessary to
remember day to day (how to use the phone, how to find a place, if he
took his meds, etc etc). When he got diagnosed, he could no longer work.
His insurance does not cover over the counter meds etc (which add up
tremendously over the months), nor does it cover all of his prescription
meds, and much of the hospital bills, which keep piling up. I worked
full time, and lost my job several months ago, yet am now working many
'smaller' jobs as I look for a permanent job. And yet, we still cannot
meet our medical and medical related bills. I have always called the
amazing staff at MGH, our Guardian Angels, yet Angels need to be paid. I
never thought I would have to ask for help, and yet I am now in a
position where I must. Dick says every day he wishes he could work, but
because of the side affects of chemo, and his ongoing other medical
issues, he simply can't. This breaks my heart, but we must do what he
have to do, to keep his life, and my family's life, as good as possible.
Thank you so much!
