Ailing RN needs help !
I have been a RN for 25 yrs and have recently been unable to work due to illness. I was diagnosed with kidney cancer and had both kidneys removed in September. I was on dialysis already 3 times a week , but was not totally dependent on the treatments and was blessed to be able to work 36hrs a week as an oncology nurse. Now I am totally dependent on dialysis and recuperating from my surgery. I am not able to physically continue working as a hospital nurse full time, but I hope to go back part-time in a less hectic or stressful position ( I love being a nurse!).
I am currently on leave from work , but my Short Term Disability has run out and I just received notice that I am now "On Leave Without Benefits " which means I have no medical coverage as of now! I have been without funds for a while and now am threatened with eviction and reposessions!
I just need a quick helping hand until I'm back on my feet! It's a very humbling position to need help when you e always been a " Helper"!
I do appreciate your consideration!
Thank you! The
