Help Debbina's Daughters

This feels quite awkward for me to be exposing my personal struggles to the Internet but it has gotten to the point where this is now my only hope. I have been a single mom for 16 years and I am in much need of help as I have been on permanent disability for two years.  I am battling Triple Negative Breast Cancer, and the odds are now against me. I started at Stage III in 2012 and have progressed to stage IV even after going through chemo therapy, five surgeries, three Oncologists, two oncology surgeons, and two hospitals. The doctors are nervous with Triple Negative cancer as it is a very aggressive breast cancer and every time they operate on it, the cancer moves to a new spot within a couple weeks.  My doctor at St. Joseph has made the decision to transfer me to City of Hope Hospital as my last resort. I wish this was my only battle but unfortunately my financial situation is very bad as well and it is nearly impossible to support my family on my own. My battle with cancer would be easier at times if I didn't have to have this heavy financial burden of medical costs and costs of living.

My main strength comes from my two daughters, Giovanna and Arianna.  Giovanna just graduated high school and hopes to go to college to get into the field of Journalism.  Arianna is a junior in high school and her dream is to become a doctor. There hasn't been a father figure in their lives since they were young toddlers and this has put such a financial burden on them at a young age. But ever since I have been diagnosed with cancer, money has only gotten tighter and we have been pushed to limits we didn't know were possible.
