Simply and straight forward asking for help

I am Vanessa Ravencroft and I am the author of the Galactic Chronicles series. Due to recent health problems. I lost the money and funds to pay and hire a professional editor.
I do have a very dedicated, still small reader and fan community.
I am encouraged by their comments to seek professional publishing.


Thanks to my wonderful friends I reached my initial goal and was able to hire a professional editor. 
However, on the 26th of November, I suffered a Heart Attack. Or in medical terms :
An acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and SVT (supraventrical tachyacardia)
They placed two stints and shocked me three times back to a more reduced rythm while in ICU, not fun at all.. Now they say a third artery is too badly collapsed for a stint and needs a bypass. They going to do the surgery after the stints placed are healed and the fluid levels in my heart sac are better managed (Medication.) The cardiologist strongly recommended a device called a Life Vest- a wearable defib.
My insurance will cover most of the cost, but the LifeVest runs $3,370 And this is just as I saw light at the end of the tunnel from my previous medical expenses (As many of you know I have/had Thyroid cancer (Thyroid is now removed) and a cerebral stroke. Now I am not complaining but was self-employed for most of my professional life and medical costs transferred me from living a comfortable life to the brink of poverty. I have some funds and money coming, and I sold most of my guns and stuff, but I am still short and frankly speaking need help.
