Hi! I am a wife of a wonderful man who is active duty army but listed as medical leave due to his fight with cancer. His type of cancer originally was a type cancer you contract genetically (which wasn't the case) or chemical exposure. Being that he was diagnosed within months of returning from his second deployment to Iraq, one would conclude that's where it came from, although the government will never acknowledge it that way. Things have progressed and now they have found a tumor on his heart. Life saving surgery is being arranged at a private hospital out of state due to the severity. He shockingly is only liste 50% disabled with the military. We were informed yesterday that his intake consultation is in one week!! The military is paying our airfare but nothing more (hotels, food, cabs, child are for our children while we are gone) with my husband out of work times are very hard and I am told I have to be there in order to be taught how to care for him after this major surgery as well as fully explained the risks involved. The cancer society cannot help with anything bc of the short notice and we are in a terrible bind. Someone created a quick fundraising event thru the gofundme website, where people can donate to help with the travel expenses to make sure we are able to go to this life saving surgery. My question is would it be ok to share the link here also to help him. We would be forever grateful anyone who can help in the cause, the only other place it ha been posted is on our Facebook account. I'm just distraught and am willing to do anything to make sure he's there so he has a chance to live through this. Thank you in advance for your reply. I am just sad that after he has served 10 years ready, that the government isn't more helpful in this :(. Again, thank you!!!
