HELP! I didn't budget for cancer!

I had a tumor named Thor. That was his benign name. But it turns out Thor was really The Thorcrux, a very large cancerous tumor where the left half of my thyroid used to be. While I have every intention of surviving thyroid cancer, I will be missing a fair amount of work due to tests, surgery, and radiation. I've decided to ask for help from friends, family, and acquaintances to cover bills and medical expenses. As a vibrant and seemingly invincible 26 year old I had absolutely no savings plan for cancer. My bad. Trust me, there's a lot of life lessons being learned right now. Any little bit helps, and I appreciate all the love and support and well wishes I've received from friends and family.
