Husband fights for life, family in financial need

In the spring of 2018, at only 9 years old, my nephew woke up one night to their house on fire.
My sister's family lost everything, their pet passed and their son had experienced a great amount of PTSD/ trauma from the event.
As they started to rebuild their lives in a small two-bedroom apartment, they finally found a suitable home in March of 2021.
In the first week of April 2021 they were exposed to Covid.
Nine days later, three days after my nephews 16th birthday, my brother-in-law had to be rushed to hospital due to breathing difficulties.
Things quickly took a drastic turn as he was put into a medically induced coma, paralyzed and had to be on 100% life support.
On May 1st 2021 he spent his 44th birthday in ICU.
While not much has changed in his condition, it's still unknown when or if he'll make a full recovery.
Both my sister and brother-in-law are essential workers living in British Columbia.
My sister has had to take time off work due to the stress, anxiety and depression this is has caused her.
Only being able to facetime hoping he can hear their voices-as no visitation is allowed, has been especially hard for their youngest son who just recovered from the house fire in 2018.
Now with zero income and an increased rent of $500 since moving, this family needs all the help they can get for recovery costs, groceries and bills for the next several months. Thank you for taking the time to read, please help my sister's family.
