Lori and Parker surgery costs

I never imagined I would ask for help like this, but we find ourselves overwhelmed by my medical bills. In December 2018 I was diagnosed melanoma on my arm, and had two surgeries to remove and then repair with a skin graft. Fortunately, they removed all of the cancer!). After this surgery, my body had an auto immune inflammatory response  that resulted in excessive nasal congestion and exacerbated previous issues, and I must now have sinus surgery in April. We have a ridiculously high copay, and will have bills upwards of about $15,000.
if that wasn’t stressful enough, our pup Parker was recently diagnosed with a knee issue (luxating patella, with possible cruciate ligament damage), which will cost between $3-4,000. If left untreated he will have degenerative issues and constant pain, We are saddened that he will not be a running buddy, but cannot imagine a life without him or one where he is in pain.
Please help if you can, however small your contribution, it will be greatly appreciated.
