Karen in chemo but time off runsout

Karen has Invasive Ductile Carcinoma which spread from breast to lymph system. She was administered a 24 week chemotherapy regimen, during which the "red devil" and taxol chemicals made too weak to work full time. She also had radiation treatments for 7 weeks. Her Personal Time Off ran out despite noble actions and a ton of time off contributions of her super dooper coworkers. So, then, capable of working only a few hours each day, her employer decided to terminate her employment. Their health care costs took precedence over compassion, apparently. She was also saddled with legal costs associated with maneuvers of her non-paying ex- husband to avoid child support. Of all times to have that on top of cancer!!!!. Now, the continuing story is hard to believe, because her adversities have grown. Unable to work due to the chemo causing a hole in a heart valve, her car loan bank has issued a repossession notices. The funding goal is intended to raise money to save her car from repossession and to replace her lost pay as she awaits heart surgery to repair the hole in the heart valve. After recovery from that surgery, Karen is anxious to go out and find another job to become self sufficient again. Despite those hard ships,  Karen never complains, so she deserves and needs temporary help. Please.
