Medical Bills While Battling Cancer

Dear family and friends,
I've given this a lot of thought and I'm praying I won't be judged for setting up this website. I've had a lot of people asking me how they could help so I'm putting this option out there. Please, please do not feel obligated in any's just an option. I realize everyone is struggling these days. 
All of you know I've been battling breast cancer. It's an uphill battle physically, emotionally and financially. Yes, I'm fortunate to have medical insurance through my employer but it does not cover everything, sure wish I was still in Canada in that regard! I'm still responsible for huge copays and out-of-pocket expenses. It's only March and I've already been charged several thousand, that's in addition to the $5000+ I've already been charged for last years tests and surgery. I still have a long way to go and it scares me how I will pay for all of it. I'm still trying my best to work full time hours because it's just not feasible for me not to but I have to take days off for my treatment and there are some days I just can't make it to work because of the side effects. I don't have any PTO time left so when I'm off it's without pay.
Sooo if you would like to help and can spare even $5 it will be so very much appreciated. I truly hope I'm not coming across as begging and I'm not offending anyone, if I am I apologize. It's certainly not my intention. I turned to this to give those who would like to help and are able an easy way to do so.
Of course prayers for myself and all those who are fighting and struggling are always welcome!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you from the bottom of my heart for everyone's support and prayers throughout my battle.
Roberta (future cancer survivor)
