Help Dawn & family with Breast Cancer needs

Hi,my name Is Dawn Kovacs. I'm 40yro, our little girl is Eva, she just turned 6yro in december.  In october 2020, I was diagnosed with stage 2 Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer,spreading to my lymph nodes. 2 Days later,my Father passed away too boot.
          I am having a my double mastectomy and lymph node removal January 12,2021.
    This has turned our world Upside down.  Like many people I was laid off in march, my long time Bf(husband) ,he works his butt off and has been holding down our family finacially ever since, we had to move in with my parents yrs ago for many reasons,but mostly financial. 
       In april,just as we finally saved enough to move out, our cat /my daughter's friend ,Clyde became deathly ill with a liver infection that caused him to into liver failure,and he was on a feeding tube for 2 u can imagine,the vet bills not only drained our savings but I acutally had to borrow money to cover the bills.
       We would like to just have enough to move (to cover 1st,last,n security) , just looking for a one bedroom so my daughter can have her own room. we would like to take her to disney even just for one day,in between my surgeries n future treatments,my Dr. said its gonna a rigorous year at least of treatments. Not including my other medical issues besides the cancer.
       One major urgency to move now is because I'm  immuno comprimised because of the cancer (and severe colitis) .....My family that we live with (mom,stepfather,and brother) don't take Covid precautions seriously and we have kinda hunkered down in our room,besides sharing the kitchen,we try our best to clean everything can but its not enough,and its been this way from the begining of the pandemic. I am in NO WAY downing my own family,its dangerous,and very stressful to deal with. Just adding too the mental and emotional stress and fear of dealing with cancer and all it comes with for Eva,Bill (hubby), and I.
     I can give some examples on their thoughts/actions about covid ,but you contact me by email, because like I said,I do not want publicly down them in any way,I love my family very much. And yes it does hurt me that they feel the way they do about covid. Im not a clean freak or anything,but my daughter ,husband and I do what we do in regards covid and cleanliness in general not just to keep ourselves from getting sick, but out of respect for others including my family.
     Thank you for taking the time to read this,any donation at all would help.  I tried to keep it short as possible. To be honest,I'm embarassed to even be asking for help, I happen to be  a veteran (like my Dad that passed) so asking for help is something we are not good at.
