Funds for my Stanford medical bills

I'm 22 years old and this is my second time I'm battling Hodgkin's Disease (lymphoma). Last year was the first time and I was expecting it to be the last. June 23rd of this year I was diagnosed again with Hodgkin's Disease and was quickly put into treatment again. I did 3 cycles of chemo as an inpatient at my local hospital and recently began the process of getting an autologus bone marrow transplant at Stanford hospital. This transplant is using my own white blood cells to help reproduce more cells. It's great to be going to such an amazing facility in order to be put back into remission but it's very expensive. I live roughly 3 and half hours away from Palo Alto, where Stanford is located, and it takes a big chunk of money drive there, get a hotel, and other expenses of that matter. My mom recieves insurance through the school she works for but because she is taking so much time off she is about to run out of personal days and will be force to pay the insurance premium on her own and on top of the other expenses I shared above. At the end of the month, October, I will be admitted to the Stanford hospital for my chemo treatment that will kill all of my white blood cells and then on November 3rd I get my transplant. I will appoxtimately be in the hospital for about 3 weeks and at that time my mom will have to get hotel inorder to be close to me. The hospital does not allow family to spend the night with the patient in their room. After that I then will have to get an apartment or hotel for a week after I've been released from the hospital to get blood work everyday to confirm my white blood cells are reproducing. All in all, this is very expensive and would appreicate any help with paying these expenses that can potentially put me back into remission. Thank you for your genoerosity.
