Immediate Breast Cancer Surgery

My precious wife, friend, mother, my rock in life, was diagnosed with breast cancer last week.  She is scheduled for surgery Thursday, April 12, 2018 if we walk in the door with $7,000 since we are self-pay.  Then we'll have the surgeon's bill, the anesthesiologist's bill, the pathology bill, the radiation treatment bills, and so on and so on.  It will likely be two times our goal of $17,500 by the time it's all said and done, and I'm not someone who has $17,500 sitting around, so it is my responsibility to come up with the money for her surgery and aftercare. If we cannot pay the upfront cost, her surgery will be cancelled and her risk of the cancer going further will increase.  We have not been able to afford health insurance and now that she has a pre-existing condition, no one will cover her - except Obamacare that does not open until November. The surgery cannot wait, so we are in a tough spot.  Please help if you feel so moved, and thank you.
