Robin's Surgery

Hi I'm Robin, I am a wife, mother of three, youth pastor and part-time student. I have been recently diagnosed with uterine fibroids (non-cancerous tumors in the uterus). Although, it is a recent diagnosis I have suffered from this condition for over 10 years; the pain has increased exponentially over the years. It now causes me severe pain and makes it hard for me to be the wife, mom and person I want to be. I love being active and I'm adventurous but my ability to be active and enjoy life is restricted and subdued due to the chronic high level of pain the fibroids cause me to have on a daily basis.
I am not usually one to ask people for help, especially financially but I am at a place where I just can't live with the pain and disability the condition causes me and we do not have the means to cover this surgery. So I am reaching out to family, friends, and people that have big hearts that I haven't had the joy of meeting yet. Anything you can spare is Greatly Appreciated and me and my husband and kids thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and kindness.
I will be having a da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy (link for more details on that procedure: http://davincisurgery.com/da-vinci-gynecology/da-vinci-procedures/hysterectomy/benign-conditions.php
My doctor's fees are $5,250 (this needs to be paid before I book the surgery, which I am hoping to have in early January 2015 and needs to be booked as soon as possible). 
I am waiting on hearing back from the Providence Hospital in Burbank for the fees on their end. However I have an out-of-pocket maximum of $6,500 which should mean that once the $5250 is covered then I will only be responsible for the remaining $1,250 until the out-of-pocket max is met after which the remaining fees should be paid by my insurance, which for the record is Blue Shield through Covered California.  Therefore I am putting a goal of $6500. 
Again, Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3
