Nurse in Need-Stage 3 Breast Cancer

I am a nurse in the Los Angeles area.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to work since June 2020 due to stage 3 breast cancer, which means 6 months and counting without income.  This is my 3rd cancer diagnosis, but this one has undoubtedly hit me the hardest in every capacity.  I underwent surgery in July 2020, chemotherapy, a second surgery in November due to multiple complications, and I'm now receiving radiation treatment and doing physical therapy.  I have dedicated most of my life to helping others, which has been reflected throughout my 15-year nursing career (including on the frontlines during this pandemic prior to my diagnosis) and helping family and strangers alike outside of work as well.  Surprisingly, there are not many financial resources out there for people in my situation.  I am asking for a helping hand until I am healthy enough to go from being a patient back to serving patients as a nurse and caregiver.  Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.
