Beating Cancer

In January 2019 what I thought was just aging I developed a limp that continued to get worst, I went to the doctor and she recommend that I get some xrays and ct scan, a MRI it was discovered that I had cancer on the bone in my right hip. I'm 71 years old had  just started a job and hadn't worked long enough to get benefits. I started chemo treatment and found out that the cancer also created breaks in my pelvis. Just when I thought it was getting better another tumor and break shows up and we start another round of treatment. I'm flooded with medical bills and worried on how am I going to pay them, maintain my living space with only my monthly social security.  The funds would pay down the medical bills and help with paying my rent. I'm restricted to living in on level ground I can't use stairs without help and can't drive so I've been blessed with friends who take me to and from my appointments.
With dealing with the constant pain, the restrictions of movement my landlord raises my rent knowing that i don't have a job at this time, I just need help, i need someone to help me with meals, cleaning my living space it seems that even thought I worked hard all my life that  I could find myself homeless. I raised my children, and three grandchildren living paycheck to paycheck, my oldest has cerebral palsy, my other has drug problems and the death of my son and now dealing with cancer again. I feel like I'm at the end of the rope.
