eviction & medical bills

Please help. My son Anthony Jones developed a rare syndrome called POTS Syndrome a few years ago. He received a scholarship tuition paid to private education. One hot summer day, his first year of high school he was playing football. Somehow he became extremely dehydrated. I picked him up from school one afternoon and he passed out. In the blink of an eye everything was taken away from. He was not able to return to the school of his dreams and lost his scholarship. The next several years would be diagnosis, doctors, hospitals and specialist. Anthony was bedridden for the first 2 years. We were fortunate enough to find a terrific doctor and with the help of the state we recevied medicaid as a secondary insurance which helped tremendously as well as an inhouse aide to make sure Anthony was ok while I worked. I am a single parent and dont get any help from Anthony's father. Anthony is now on the road to recovery but in the meantime I have lost child support and Anthony's secondary medical insurance when he turned 19 in february . Anthony takes 17pills a day to help him walk, help his heart function and blood flow on a daily basis. I am facing eviction at the end of August 2014. I have had to choose between rent and medical bills/copays. And i choose medical. Watching my son over the years suffering, it was not an option.
