Heart surgery costs

At age 78, I am in remarkably good health with the exception now of a heart condition diagnosed as aorta stenosis.  Corrective measures include local pre surgery  work and then to Stanford Hospital for the actual surgery.  I've had two recent hospital stays precipated by this condition, and medical costs are astounding, with the surgery cost alone at $100,000, of which Medicare covers only 80% of the amount they deem acceptable.  I have been declined for supplemental insurance because of these conditions, leaving my  SS income to cover what little I can.   

I am by nature a conservative and somewhat reclusive individual, but in this instance, a very short life ( 2 years maybe?) will result if I do not have this corrective surgery, which is replacing the aortic valve in my heart.  I am living now on a very constrictive blood flow, and unable to even walk short distances without gasping for air.  The sooner I am able to have this surgery, the better...the doctoer wants to start immediately. 

If you are financially able to help me in this instance my heart felt thanks will be yours forever, and if you can't help financially, your love and prayers will provide so much support and also gains my  heart felt thanks.
