I Need Some Help With Expenses

First of all I want to say thank you to those of you who have helped me get to this point. As most of you know in May I hit my leg with a baby gate while I was pet sitting. That little tap turned into a huge nightmare. I went to the doctor and they diagnosed it as a blood clot running from groin to ankle. The medications were astronomical but thanks to the help of friends and family I was able to get through treatment. It was such a scary time, one of the clots launched and almost claimed my life. The huge amounts of blood thinners caused me to hemorrhage and I wound up in the ER with yet a new problem... I seen a gynecologist and they did a procedure to slow the bleeding only to find a large tumor which turned out to be a very aggressive form of endometrial cancer. August 3rd I underwent a complete hysterectomy... August 11th I was diagnosed with stage four B endometrial cancer. Unfortunately the cancer had spread to other areas. I'm still in recovery and have not been working since August 1st. I had worked as much as I was physically able to (much more than I should have) prior to surgery. As you all know it's hard to keep me down but I'm down. The hospital is helping to push paperwork through for Medicaid and disability but it could take a long time and I have bills (living expenses) piling up every day. I need more help and you know that's a hard pill for me to swallow. I will be starting chemotherapy followed with radiation within the next week or so.  I've always been independent and worked hard for what I needed. If you can possibly help I would be eternally grateful. You have my word I will pay it forward in any way I can. I feel bad even asking, with the chaos in the world right now, my issues pale in comparison. My hands are tied and it's so frustrating. Thank you for your love, help and encouragement through this ridiculous time in my journey. I love you all dearly!
