You did it! Kim is safe now!

My sister Kim has had seven major back surgeries in the last five years, including 2 in the past 6 months (5 fusions, incision from neck to butt, taking out old screws & rods and replacing them with bigger ones!)    As a result, she hasn't been able to go back to her job of 30 years at UPS for over a year.
     We are days away from finding out if she qualifies for disability, but even if approved, it will take months to get payments coming in.  Her short term disability ran out a year ago, meaning zero income.  I've been paying her living expenses for the last year and just can't keep up supporting two households.  
     We are humbly asking for help as we have exhausted getting assistance from local agencies and have no where else to turn.  
     She is now two months behind on her rent and can't get help from charities or United Way.   She has no car or health insurance, but our urgent need is help with her living expenses (rent, utilities, food, toilet paper, dog food and toothpaste).
     Also, if anyone knows how to get help with dog care or dentist for her, please reach out.  
    Any help is deeply appreciated and will all go towards basic necessities for Kim.   
     Thank you for your support and prayers.
  God Bless,
              Cara
