I lost my health insurance and caregiver plan

Hello all!
I hate that I have to ask for help. I am a disabled single mother of two. I have recently been kicked off of my Medi-Cal and as result lost my In Home Support Services (IHSS). IHSS pays a provider of my choosing to come to my home daily to help me shower, dress, cook, and clean as well as other personal care tasks. 

I have begun the reapplication process but it will take AT LEAST 45 days and I may end up not qualifying due to my job as a part time instructor of psychology at Southwestern College. I am hoping to become a full time professor but I can only apply and hope I’m chosen. 

Until then I need to pay for my medication and pay for my caregiver myself. I was barely making it as it was and with the holidays coming it’s even worse. Ihave two small children who don’t deserve to not have a holiday season because of gov’t red tape. I’m asking for $2,500 to help me get through the next 2 months without these necessary services.

please donate if you can, if not I’d appreciate sharing this gofundme. 

thank you all for your kindness and generosity!

All my best wishes,
Shannon, Sydney, and Jackson
