Stage 4 Cancer Patient Needs Your Help

I am a cancer patient who recently began disability. I can barely make ends meet, and my health care expenses are through the roof. The bills are piling up, and I don't want to run around without insurance.  I used to be a teacher, but my job ended in August.  I'm not allowed Medicare because I'm too young; have to wait two years as most on social security disability my age do. I can't yet get housing help  either. Last week due to bills and my CT scan pushed up 3 months, I felt more anxious than I ever have felt in my life, even though taking the CT scan was to make sure a small problem is just minor.  It cost me $1000 as did another 2 months ago.  I have over 10000 of bills in medical collections. Non cancerous food is importsnt too and not available in great quantity at food banks.  . My oncologist wants me focused on my health and not working, so I stopped working part time.. I need to exercise often and be outsides.   had a masectomy and have lymphodema which means toxins get clogged without fresh air, fresh foods and lots of e:xercise, a pre ariois situation. I could live 2 to 20 years or so, a doctor said. My medial sternum can't be 
operated on unless I hear differently because it's too close to my heart. One spot has increased and a new spot is under watch I'm my lungs.I thank you in advance for your help!   You will help keep me alive longer, no exxageratiom.
