I am so upset my husband is in the hospital in Chicago going through cancer treatment. I have to go back and forth everyday I am not able to pay my bills and give up buying food. The parking is $5 a day I feel like the world is sucking me dry!

Hi gb, Have you contacted the American Cencer Society? They sometimes can help families with transportation needs in situations like this. It's worth checking out -- I know things are tight already in a situation like this, and every little bit can help.
