Please, help me stay in school!

My name is Kelsey, and I am a 24 year old student aiming to join the medical field, and help others. I am currently in school to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (Ultrasound Technician). I am attending school in Los Angeles California at the most accredited school in my field. I am highly passionate in what I do, and excel in my program with all A’s so far. My problem currently that on top of student loans, I have to pay part of my tuition while attending school, or I will be kicked out of the program. In my first year I scraped together as much money as I could to cover my tuition that needed to be paid while in school. My family is rather poor, and was hit hard by everything currently happening. I Am scraping by as it is. I am in my second year, with a year and a half left of school, with no financial assistance. I am at risk for being kicked out of my program. I plan to receive my specialties in three fields: Abdomen, Vascular, and OB/GYN. I have always wanted to be in the medical field, and one instance in my life gave me my passion towards pursuing Sonography. Two years ago my sister was pregnant with many complications, which led her to be in and out of the hospital starting around week 29 of her pregnancy. Her first dilemma was her mucous plug rupturing causing her to stay in the hospital for a week so that they can delay her delivery. The day she got home her water broke, and she was back in the hospital. We had the same ultrasound technician for almost a week reassuring us that her baby was in a position where his head is in her birth canal. As it turned out he was laying along her pelvis. Due to her careless scanning, at week 34 her son’s oxygen rapidly decreased and she was rushed into surgery. He was born with how left arm and shoulder bruised due to being stuck, and had issues breathing. He remained in the NICU for a month. Now he is a healthy baby boy. However, due to her mistake I decided to become a Diagnostic Sonographers to excel in my field so that I can care for others, and have them not go through such a difficult experience. I am extremely grateful for any amount that you can give! Thank you so much for taking your time to read this! The picture above shows my tuition required for this year. The bottom right number that is circled is the amount I owe this year, and to the left it says the amount owed each month. The remainder of my tuition for 2020 is: $5,052.14 The remainder of my tuition for 2021 is: $1,961.41
