Help Me Fight Leukemia Without Stress Over Bills

So, this isn't an easy request for me to make as I'm still in complete and utter shock, dismay, and despair, just trying to wrap my head around all of this. Anyway, I went to the ER Monday morning, November 2nd, because my blood sugar was over 300 and I figured, well my awful diet and fat assness finally caught up to me and I'm diabetic. I figured they'd give me some literature and an insulin shot or something and send me on my way. But by 8pm Monday evening, I was being transferred to Ft Sanders Regional to the Oncology department. Yesterday, they performed a bone marrow biopsy and I received my diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. I am in a state of total and complete shock. This is not what I was expecting at all, but life rarely ends up being something you expect it to. I was transferred from Ft Sanders to Methodist in Oak Ridge for chemotherapy and I've been here for almost 2 weeks and I'll be here for a few weeks more because I have no immune system. This means that I can't work or do much of anything to bring in income. The stress of trying to manage a major illness like I have and figure out a way to keep the lights on, the car payment made, and the rent paid has proven more than I can bare. It will be months before I am allowed to go back to work. I've applied for disability, but there is a five month waiting period on that and we all know bills won't wait. My job offers no insurance, no short term disability, nothing for me to fall back on when this came crashing down and now I'm in a serious bind with the bills piling up and no way to pay them. I know money is tight for all of us right now, so anything you can spare will go a long way toward easing my very exhausted mind. I'm going to beat this cancer and I'm going to live, there's no other option and every single dollar donated is a step toward ensuring that. I'm strong, I'm tough and I'm a fighter. A huge thank you to any and everyone for their thoughts and prayers in this my darkest hour. I love you all.
