Medical Expenses Help

In the last couple years I’ve had a significant number of health issues which continue to worsen and resulted in my being placed on medical leave In December 2019. I was eventually let go as I was not healthy enough to go back to work. Prior to getting sick I had always been a strong, independent woman with a home of her own. However, after being placed on medical leave I had to give up my home as I couldn’t afford rent.
I’ve started the process of filing for disability with the Social Security Dept however that is not a quick process by any means. I’ve done my best to try and stay afloat however I’ve reached a point where I have to ask for help despite the fact that I’ve always been the one helping others. I’m asking for help to cover medical related expenses including the costs of getting to appointments as all my specialists are at least a 2 hour drive away. 

I realize that they’re people who are in similar situations or worse due to the pandemic and I don’t want this to GoFundMe to suggest that those people are any less worthy. I’ve done everything I can at this point so I’m hoping that I can get a bit of help to assist until there’s some resolution with my financial situation. Thank you in advance for even considering helping, it really does mean a lot.
