Faccini Family fighting Cancer

It's been a tough year for us, first I got diagnosed with uterine cancer 3 months ago, a month ago I  got a notice in the mail  from Lumber Liquidators stating  that the flooring that I bought from them almost 10 years ago and that was installed everywhere in the house is involved in a class A law suite because of formaldehyde emissions which is linked to cancer, 3  weeks ago my oldest daughter Karen got sick and was admitted in the hospital for a week, after a biopsy they diagnosed her with Hodgkings lymphoma, which is exactly the type of cancer linked to the flooring; so with the help of some friends I pulled out all the flooring a  few days ago.
Since I removed my flooring, there is a humidity/ moldy smell in the house, I  guess that I removed the seal that was keeping that   humidity away.  Initially I had thought that putting new flooring could wait a little,  while I get back on my feet, but now with that humidity smell I think it is urgent to replace it because when Karen starts chemo her immune system is going to be compromised. She can get serious illness from germs and bacteria.

Karen is set to start chemo next week, she is under her dad's insurance but they just renewed and need to meet the deductible, besides there are other expenses such as fertility treatment which is not covered by insurance and is around 7K. This treatment is necesary as she might not be able to have children as a consequence of chemo and she is just 19, She started the fertility treatment  last week and we will freeze her eggs before chemo starts.

I'm a single mother of 3 and I'm  struggling, I  have no other family here,  I have a full time job that I have not been able to attend lately.  Luckily my employer and coworkers are very understanding as I have had to miss work a lot. Karen is having two to four appointments a day to get everything done to complete staging, fertility treatment and everything else before chemo.

As you can imagine I'm  buried in medical bills with my own diagnosis and now I have to replace the flooring, care for my kids, etc.

On top of everything my youngest son Santiago  has been sick as well he has been very sick of his stomach lately, he missed an entire week of school before Karen was hospitalized and now he is sick again, he has not been able to hold down any food since Thursday(6 days so far), today  he was referred to the gastroenterologist,
I really hope you can help us.
