Immediate relief for job loss and medical expenses

I am a health care worker who was let go the week before Christmas without any notice or funds. Unfortunately last week I lost my job after working overtime every week for the past 12 months in health care due to COVID-19. I worked in respiratory care centers and testing offices. I worked with no hazard pay or additional compensation. I not only was exposed at work daily, but I contracted COVID-19 and have experienced long term effects from it. I have a lot of doctors I need to continue seeing and I am currently without any funds to do so. I already lived paycheck to paycheck and will now go into the new year with nothing. I’m looking for help with paying my rent, covering medical expenses, and living expenses until I’m able to find a new job. I hope to do so sooner rather than later but there is obviously no timeline. If I raise more than I’m in need of I will redistribute the remaining funds to other mutual aid projects. I know this year has been hard on everyone and I’m hoping that those who do have the means will be willing to help. Any donation or sharing is appreciated!
