Help Aphrodite with medical bills

My name is Aphrodite Rozes Cottrell. I grew up and have worked here in Newport County my entire life. This year I have undergone 3 major surgeries in Boston. I have been unable to work as an RN I am and l have no pension.I have been an RN for 30 yrs i have been financially strapped. I am too young to retire and get Social Security.. I do recieve SSDI but not long enough to get medical help. I pay my own bills with no medicare or medicaid. I pay 350.00 a mo blue cross thru healthsource RI plus 55.00 copays and meds and all.equipment needed. I live on 1600.00 dollars a month. I am sharing an apt with my daughter but pay half the rent and utilities, plus my lease car and car insurance and phone on top of blue cross. My medical bills are the worse and I am having another surgery Jan 31, 2018. All this is because of a failed total ankle transplant done in RI in july 2015.that never healed properly. I attempted to work with it and injured my back from unsteady gait. I just cannot do this myself anymore this next surgery I will be laid up 4-6 mos. I have cared for so many people over the years, have always tried to give the best medical care to my knowledge. If anyone could help me out with any donation it would be greatly appreciated. I cannot afford my meds and proper equipment for healing. I will gladly donate any extra to a worthy cause. I only wish to be able to walk and go back to work again. Thank you in advance.
