Debby Waters Cohen Brain Aneurysm

Hi everyone. My name is Debby Waters Cohen and I am in dire need of help. I have been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm after suffering a stroke.  Hospital bills, time off from work , doctor's
appointments hurt.

My insurance does not cover  everything and I cannot afford the deductibles.  I worry because my mother died of an aneurysm.

Since I have two jobs, I do not meet the income requirements for assistance, yet I do not make enough to get by. I fall in that grey area where I cannot qualify for assistance.

To add to an already difficult situation I am now homeless due to a situation that was beyond my control.  I have fostered out my three cats but this is only short term. I still have a dog, Abbey with me and she sleeps sometimes in my car just to be close to me.  I am struggling to survive and do not know from one night to the other where I will be sleeping. I live for my dog and cats they are my heart and strenght.  It hurts knowing how they are hurting because of me being sick and homeless.  I really need a chance to get back on my feet. I do not have immediate family left for help or assistance. 

I am holding back tears and swallowing my pride as I write this, I never thought this could happen to me.

I work two jobs to try to earn as much as I can but I don't know how much longer I can continue to do this.  Unfortunately, this is my reality. I am not asking for pity. This is the last thing I wanted to do but I am in need.

Please if you can find it in your heart, I am asking you my friends, co workers to donate , so I can find a home for me and my pets .  If you cannot donate,  please pass this on to your church ,facebook friends in the hope someone might be able to help.

Thank you for taking a moment to help me find a solution, I do not know where else to turn.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking time to read this.

I am grateful, Debby
