Family in need.

Let's see, where do I start?  This kind of thing is hard for me.  I'm 35 with a loving husband and 2 beautiful healthy kids. I recently found out we were pregnant with our third child which for anyone should be a happy time.  Soon after being told I was 14 weeks pregnant I'm told I have Ovarian cancer and need to start treatment asap. The chemotherapy has taken a real toll on me and I have trouble doing daily housework but can eventually get it done. My husband recently lost his job taking too much time off to care for the kids as well as do repairs to our 1990 Dodge Caravan.  I have to drive to my chemotherapy with no windshield wipers on my car when it rains and now the thermostat went so we have no heat.  As well as needing new brakes among other things. I found out that my insurance company will no longer cover some of my medications. One of which is over $300 for a 7 day supply and thats with a discount. I'm at my wits end and dont know what to do.  Anything that anyone can help with even if it's just a dollar. It goes a long way.  Now more than ever I need more positivity in my life and people who care enough to lend a helping hand. My immediate family is my support and some school friends have reached out and helped us tremendously. So we are grateful for that. We are also in the process of trying to find a place to live as the house we live in is on the market and might be sold soon. Having 2 small children, a serious disease and treatment that takes a toll on me, as well as my husband looking for work has been alot for us to handle and God willing we will get through this. We just dont know where else to turn. Thank you for reading my story. Sometimes it helps to get some of this off my chest. I'm overwhelmed.
