Need help with hotel and medical expenses

Hello everyone, my names Kassandra. I have two beautiful baby boys, and an amazing boyfriend to go along with it. On Monday October 19th, I took a trip to the ER, thinking I just had a simple case of bronchitis. I get it yearly so I just figured I’d rather be more safe than sorry especially with COVID going around. When I got into the back they decided to give me a chest X-ray, after the results came in the realized I had a large mass in my right lung. The decided they would like to do a CT-scan to find more information on whatever it could possibly be, the results came back, and they found that I had multiple swollen lymph-nodes, and a mass the size of a softball pressing against my right lung. Which is why I had been struggling to breathe. Doctors consulted with one other and determined it was lymphoma cancer. They decided they wanted to do an emergency biopsy to find more details and information on it, I got the biopsy Friday, October 23rd. My oncologist had come to the final conclusion that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer, and that I will have to start chemotherapy. I go back to the doctors in November on the 1st. I will be then starting my treatments and anything else I need to do to beat this hell that we all call “Cancer”. I’m a fighter, and I know I can beat this. And with the love and support of family, friends and the community we will win this fight. And I will be able to call myself a survivor. Jarrod and I are working as much as possible to be able to pay for our hotel room, so not only am I battling cancer, but we are also living in a hotel due to very unfortunate circumstances. Alls I’m asking for is the love and support to afford the hotel and my medical expenses, a little bit can go a long way and absolutely anything helps, whether it be ads shown to us for apartments that are available or a few dollars to go towards the next next for our stay in the hotel. I’m sure if you have children, or have ever been homeless yourselves, you know how expensive and stressful these situations can be, especially adding cancer to the mix. Anything helps and I truly appreciate anybody willing to help us in this extreme time of need. With lots of love, from my little family to yours, thank you❤️
