My Sammie-Cat is Critical! PLEASE HELP

Donations for Sammie-Cat (Samantha) are needed immediately & will be going to her critical care needs.

She is in a desperate race with time for help with an emergency vet ultrasound, having 24/7 watch while I am at work or so I can supplement any missed work due to her needing to be hand fed & water given through a dropper or other methods. She may very well be requiring an immediate feeding tube, an emergency ultrasound and other urgent issues.

Samantha aka Ms.Sammie-Cat is not doing okay at all. I paid $200 already that I absolutely did not have. I've worked my butt off and can't stay on too of all that is needed for her to find out what's wrong. Yesterday I counted out just enough for an urgent appointment. My cat is in a critical state!!

I'm worried about Samantha, especially this week. Blood tests have been done and her liver is in critical condition. She doesn't appear to have any diseases, so the hospital doesn't know what's causing this. We need more tests and care done NOW :-(
She will not eat she will not drink. Shes extremely jaundice. Time is almost gone.

She is the last gift I ever got from my mom before my mom died. I've had her for 7 years. I even named her after my mom.
She and I escaped a very scary situation with my abusive ex. After surviving this, we became homeless for a short time to get away. We slept in the snow at a bus stop just to get away. I worked so hard to go into hiding from that monster!
After I found my kitty-cat and I a home of our own, Samantha's personality just shined! I learned self-defense and would teach her. Sammie would wiggle her little bottom and swoop her cute little face down as she pounced on the floor to jump up in the air at my practices in front of the mirror. If I get sick, she does, and visa-versa. It is amazing how much she depends on "her mama", and acts like a real little girl.

I am so worried. I came in from getting a few groceries, and she was standing at the door, waiting for me. As soon as I put the groceries down, she started throwing up mucus. My cat has not thrown up at all until just now. I'm very scared!!

Her ears are so yellow they said it's because of how bad her liver is and if I can get her to eat, then she has a good chance of her liver healing some. I got some specialty cat food that's for animals that are urgently critical and she ate it up really good at the vet's office but she will not eat here at all, she just looks at it and tries to bury it.

I am so scared I don't know what to do anymore. I need help with a $400+ stomach ultrasound and feeding tube or a euthenation & don't know where to turn. I'm sickened.

This is what 2019 Christmas is.
This horrible nightmare even continued as I had to take use the Christmas funds that I was going to go to the holidays for the family and used it on this very important emergency for my "fur baby". 
My adult kids also work all week and go to classes, and live a ways away.  I am so grateful that they and my grandkids all understand and agree that her life comes first.
I'm so angry and sad right now with all of this heartbreak, it is too overwhelming. I cant help my fur baby without help. I work this week and she needs to be closely cared for while I'm at work. I have nobody and no funds to do this. I feel so freaking helpless.

Samantha enjoys learning what things are. If I am eating, she does not want a taste, she simply wants to hear what I am eating. So as I eat, I hold a piece up to her nose and I say the name of what it is that I'm eating. She walks away every time afterwards, happy to learn.
Samantha will talk with you too. She holds conversations, such as "Sammie what are you doing?" and her looking right at you and giving quite a few "me mow mows and burwow-wows". I have videos of this but could not figure out how to bring it from my phone to a computer that I would love to share with you.

If you can please help. Donating through this GoFundMe is requested as I have not yet been able to figure out how to set it up through her account at VCA Oquirrh Hills Animal Hospital in Herriman
