Emergency Help

I need your help... 
Sunday July 7,  I awoke in severe pain, I could not breath, it felt like I had been kicked in the chest by a horse.
Blood clots had formed in my lungs. These blood clots exaserbated my existing medical issues, resulting in heart and kidney failure. Medical  conditions that I had under control. The blood clots caused my body to crash. I was hospitalized on July 7 and won't be out until at least July 23.

I am asking for help with the cost of living expenses for the next couple of months while I recover. Rent, food, bills, and travel expenses.
I won't be able to work for the next  four to six months. I also can't return to the work that I did before.
I have to make some major changes and focus 100% on my health if I want to continue to stay alive.

I was scheduled to work on the Clearwater Sloop July 15. Living and working aboard the ship. 

Now I am unexpectedly homeless and my savings is less than $500.

Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.
