I need a miracle

Hello. My name is Susana and I am a 37yr old single mother of 2 beautiful girls. I would do anything for them to keep them safe and make sure that they have everything they need.  I worked hard for a big company for 12yrs until they gave my position away for going on medical leave. With no job I had no choice but to file for social security which means I'm on a fixed income receiving in one month what I used to make in a week. I have constant doctors visits with a variety of different doctors. And along with the doctor visits comes the office visit copays. Not to mention the endless amount of prescription medication copays that Medicare won't cover. Because of my "income" I don't qualify for Medi-Cal; not even because of my illness. You see I have a chronic illness for which there is no cure for. I have Polycystic Kidney Disease. Chronic Kidney Failure as the doctors put it. I am one of 3% in the country to have this genetic condition and being that it is hereditary, my daughters have a 50/50 chance of having it too.  I go to dialysis 3 times a week and I have been doing so for 3yrs. Some days are better than others. The bad  days in which I can't even get out of bed are the worst. Those that know me know that I HATE asking anyone for anything and I especially hate talking about my disease. But I need the public's help not just for myself but for my girls. My brother just recently lost his job and its been him and I ever since my mother died.  My mother was everything to us and she's gone.  We have no other immediate family here. I question God every day; asking him why me.  My insurance is not the best and I am currently waiting just to be PLACED on the waiting list.  My life has become a struggle since getting diagnosed and losing my job. Ive been in and out of the hospital more times than I can remember. And the hospital bills just keep mounting. My car is currently in danger of being repossessed. My medication is constantly changing and its getting more and more expensive and harder to pay for. I know everyone has their own problems that they're dealing with but its with tears in my eyes that I ask you to help. On behalf of my girls, my brother, and myself; thank you. Anything is appreciated.
