Patricia Riches Cancer Fight

My name is Patricia Riches.  I am 63 years old and suffering from Stage 4 Leukemia and Metastatic Cancer.  The cancer is currently in my spine and I am unable to walk or use my legs due to the tumors compressing on my spine.  I was only recently diagnosed in January with cancer so I'm still dealing with the shock and grief of it all.  
I have a husband of over 40 years, 2 sons and a grand-daughter.  I was looking forward to enjoying the golden years with my family and then the diagnosis came and through me through a loop.  
Unfortunately, I don't qualify for government assistance coverage.  We barely make ends meet with our monthly social security.  I am now leaving the hospital with a near $300,000 hospital bill and heading back home.  The doctors have told me I will need chemotherapy treatment but there is no way that I can afford to pay for it.  My family has helped me all they can and I appreciate all that everyone has done for me.  
My whole life I have cared for others and found ways to give to others less fortunate than me.  My life has been one that has focused on charity and loving all of God's creatures and creations.  I pray each night that God would give me some of that help that I now desparately need.   I'm not ready to die.  Thank you for reading my story.
