III to III request for help

If you have a heart at all, please consider helping out if you are able. I am kicking in from the Backyarder Camp tomorrow on payday. 

I would hope that if it was you in this position, you'd appreciate a pass along. Share to your outlets and lets try to help this family out. 

Thank you!

Funds for Shaylyn

So this is where it all started.
I was at work on Oct. 21st when I got a call from my wife
I was doing irrigation service right around the corner from home (Thank God) and it was the call that no man ever wants to get
Her son who was 38 had just been killed in a high speed car accident outside of Tampa
I say her son because even though we have been married for 26 Yrs. I did very little raising of him
But anyway, that was the start
Then, the week before Christmas our Daughter Shaylyn who is 36 calls to inform my wife that she has adrenal cancer
I say ours because even though she is not my blood, I have raised her since age 8 as my daughter
Anyway, she also has tumors on her kidneys and spots on her liver that are most likely also tumors
She was hospitalized for 2 weeks because her blood pressure was out of control and she was seen by a specialist
She was supposed to have laproscopic surgery to have the tumors removed immediately
That was weeks ago
Unfortunately she is uninsured and medically needy and no doctor will touch her
She will have to wait until an endocrine surgeon  decides to donate his charity
Or not
I live in Florida in a county that has the highest unemployment rate in the state and own a business that has been drained over the past 6 yrs. to nothing
We as a family are in dire straights
Without treatment Shay is destined for a short life with a lot of suffering
I don’t know if it is pride or denial but she will not quit working to go on disabilty
And at this point the process is probably too long anyway
The surgery may or may not save her
I don’t even know
To tell you truthfully I don’t even know what it costs
But I can’t sit and do nothing
I haven’t asked her approval yet and don’t really care
I have a link below for paypal to donate
I don’t know how to get a button so it is just a link
I don’t use paypal for anything other than buying so any funds donated will be earmarked
Even if you don’t donate I would sure appreciate you passing this on
