Daniel needs help taking care of his Mom

My name is Daniel. I have been taking care of my Mother since my Father died in my arms in 2001.
She has been in poor health with both feet amputated and leg amputated. In October 2019.
I moved us from Oregon where I graduated from UofO in 2002 for a job here in Washington state.
I found a great job designing commercial kitchens .. becoming the project manager for our K-12 school division with the purpose of providing quality nutritious meals to our youth, and community centers in rural areas 
As a young man e did mostly manual labor working in landscaping and lumber Mills. This caught up with me in 2008 with my physical ability quickly deminishing, and ultimately led to my divorce.
 I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis which due to lack of blood flow has disintegrated the joints in my hips and shoulders,as well as resulting in my spine to fuse.
 My employer was very compassionate and kept me on as an independent contractor for ase long as they could, until downsizing was inevitable. As an independent contractor I am ineligible for unemployment. I have turned to Social security to attempt to collect some of the money I have put into the system for the past 25 years. 
I need $700 to pay my doctor to help file papers for my case as instance won't pay
Thank you
