surgery to battle cancer

In July 2014 I had gone to a walk in clinic with stomach pain.  Dr. did a ct scan which showed diverticulitus but what they also found was Bilateral heterogenous large adnexal masses 8cm on left and 6cm on right.  I went to my gynecologist as recommended and he did an ultrasound and blood work.  I received a phone call the following day saying that I have ovarian cancer.  Last week I saw a gynecologic oncologist who said I need a complete hysterectomy and removal of whatever cancer he finds.  I am getting a hard time from the hospital since I don't have enough medical coverage.   It turns out that I have a $5000 max payment.  The hospital said with that I am better off doing it as a cash patient.  If I pay up front for the procedure, they will give me a 60% discount costing me approx $14,500 plus i will still have dr. charges of $2500 and his assistant charges of $325 they did not give me the charges for the pathologist or anesthesiologist yet.  Everyone has hard times please help battle this before it gets worse.  Anything will help even if it's only a dollar.  Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my situation this means more to me than you will even know and i greatly appreciate it.  Prayers are more than welcome as well
