Accident Recovery

Hello All,

I am usually the person other people turn to when they need help.  It is very difficult for me to ask for assistance but I am somewhat desperate. 

A few of weeks ago, August 19th, I had an eye exam during which my pupils were dilated, a short time later I was walking down my basement steps and thought I was at the bottom but was actually on the third step up from the bottom.  When I fell forward my right foot hit the floor with so much force it drove my knee cap up through the Quadricep Tendon completely rupturing the tendon.   I was rushed to the hospital and two days later had surgery to reattach the tendon.  

I have a brace on my leg to keep it immobilized which must remain in place for the next 12 -16 weeks.  As a result I cannot drive and therefore, cannot work.   I do have short term disability, but it only pays $34.00 per day.  I am glad I am receiving something, but it is no where enough to pay my bills. 

I am very humbly asking for your help in raising money to pay my bills over the next two to three months.  I have many bills due in 7 days so the situation is rather urgent. 

Thank you for reading this and any help is greatly appreciated.
