Kathy's medical

I'm raising money for my physical therapy. I have to go 3 times per week for 4 weeks. That's $840 for my therapy and that's with my insurance. My  visits will be more than the therapy but right now this is the most pressing need. 

What happened....

On October 20, 2019 I broke my ring finger right where it meets my hand. I was placed in a splint by the emergency room and told to follow up with the orthopedic surgeon. I followed up with the orthopedic surgeon that very week and was placed in a cast for 2 weeks with the expectation that it would heal the broken bone. Somehow while in the cast the bone became displaced and I had to have surgery on November 14th.  I went back to the hand surgeon today and was given orders for physical therapy of three times a week for 4 weeks. I do have medical Insurance but my copay for this is $70 a visit. That's $210 a week. My doctor also said that I will most likely need to have a second surgery but that will be after therapy.  As some of you know my husband has been off work for a while due to not being able to walk because of his ongoing medical issues. He has since  applied for disability but was denied and we are in the process of fighting that decision. I work full time and just recently got a second job to help try to catch up on some bills because I am the only one able to work right now and then this happened. I most likely will be missing work from both jobs. We've already been struggling more than we can handle and this is only adding to the strain. Setting up this was the last thing that Ray or I wanted to do but,  we are just at a loss of what to do. Know this, if anyone is able to help us this will be considered a loan and when we do get back on our feet we will repay anyone who helped us. Thank you
