Help Cathy fight melanoma cancer

I was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma skin cancer in May. I had a portion of my back removed and a lymph node. The lymph node came back positive for melanoma. Next step was chemotherapy. Started treatments on July 3.
My husband of 25 years passed away 2 years ago and my son is in college at Central Washington University.
I have no income for July, August, and 1/2 of September. I work for the Tacoma Public Schools, I have for 14 years. I don't get paid in the summer and I can't get a summer job while doing chemo. I will return to work in September, but won't get a paycheck until September 20th.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
