A sisters plea to save her brother. I need help in paying for my brother Ron's living expenses, medical bills and medications. Please help.

A few months ago my brother Ron had a sore in his mouth under his tongue and some issues with his tongue hurting and burning. He thought a simple visit to the doctor to drain the sore and get some antibiotics would solve the issue. Little did we know that a biopsy of the sore would come back showing a fast growing squamous cell cancer. On June 11th he has surgery to remove the cancer. They removed most of his tongue, lower mouth and teeth. The small piece of tongue left was attached to the bottom palet they rebuilt in his mouth. He can no longer eat or enjoy food again except through his feeding tube. He breaths through a trachea and has to go through extensive radiation treatments, more surgery, and speech therapy to learn to talk again. Due to two prior heart attacks he has been unable to work and now the cancer. He has no means of income for living expenses, medical bills or medications.
It has been financially draining on the family that can help and now we are asking for help from those with a kind and giving heart. You will be blessed and in our prayers. Some day when this is all over hopefully we can reach out to others in need of help and return to them the help that we are now asking of others.
May you be blessed for your kind and giving heart.
Rons sister,
Linda Craig
