Medical Leave/Living expenses

My sister Robin McDaniel is a single grandparent raising her teenage grandson. Robin has worked since she was young and supported both of her kids as a single parent, always going without for herself. She has NEVER asked for help from anyone and has worked two jobs at a time just to survive. She has no luxuries in life and gets by with just the necessities. She has a full time job working laundry in housekeeping in a nursing home where she has no medical insurance. Robin has been having a lot of health issues that are making it hard for her to do her job but has yet missed a day of work due to them. She has been to the free clinic and has a surgery scheduled for Sept 8th 2014. Robin is having a Hysterectomy & Bladder Sling both on that day and was told that she would not be able to return to work for 6-12 weeks. She has cervical cancer and Robin lives paycheck to paycheck and has told her work and the doctors that she will be returning in two weeks due to the fact of not having any money to survive during that time. I am trying to raise enough money for her to be able to take the time off of work and not have to worry about how she will live. Her bills are a little over 1200 a month and I am trying to get enough for two months. Robin is not the type of person that would ever ask for help so I am asking for her!
