Help Onyx & siblings vet bills

Hello my name is Valerie,
Recently one of my cats was losing weight to the point you could start feeling his bones, his name is Onyx, he is 7 years old & I have had him since the day he was born. Onyx visited his vet on August 14th 2020 & was diagnosed as Diabetic & test results came in. He is now taking insulin shots every 10-12 hours. 

I have been unemployed since May 14th 2020 due to the changes that occurred for the coronavirus putting my health at risk. 

3 years ago, I started having allergic reactions, but did not know what was causing these reactions. I started seeing an allergist doing different test & keeping track of my reactions & what I ate to see if what i was eating was causing the reactions. After several emergency visits to my doctor’s office & the emergency room to receive steroid & Benadryl shots to prevent my throat from closing I was sent to see a dermatologist. In January 2019 test results showed an allergy condition to a chemical. The dermatologist stated that I’m a rare hypersensitivity case. If I am within 3 feet anything or anyone containing the chemical, I can have minor to severe reactions which has changed my life to always be on edge for a reaction.  

The company I was working for did isolate me into a cubicle to have minimal contact with other employees that could be wearing something that contains the chemical. When the pandemic started the company furloughed many of the employees & moved others to keep the business running & they also moved me, the moved caused allergic reactions, extreme anxiety & stress & I had to leave the position. the company does not believe in work at home jobs so there were no other options for me. I am currently looking for work at home job opportunities so I can continue to provide for myself & my cats

I have included pictures of vet bills & proof of my allergy condition. The pictures of my reactions are just how the skin turns, but my skin & throat will start to burn & as it worsens my tongue & throat starts to swell.

If you can help donate for vet bills, diabetic cat food & to help me get all my cats up to date with their vaccines, I would really appreciate it. The vaccines is around $140 per cat & I have 4 of them

Thank you
