Nikki Medical Bills

Dear friends, the last six months I've undergone many doctor visits and had many procedures, three to be exact, my bills have grown to a size I can no longer handle. I've paid out of pocket $5000 already and borrowed $3000 from a close friend but now have a $1500 medical bill that I need to pay in the next week. Because this country is a capitalist poo pen of medical misogynist bullshit, even with my Aetna student health coverage this is what I owe. 
For total transparency I make a monthly student stipend between August and May.  June and July I do not get paid. August and May I get paid half a paycheck because I'm in school/teach half those months. September- April I make $2000 a month, after rent, car insurance, groceries et cetera, I net between $5/$6 hundred a month give or take. Breaks down to a budget of about $125-$150 a week.  Normally I work at UCLA during the summer to cover June and July but this summer due to covid was unemployed. I've been left scrambling to make ends meet on top of these mounting medical bills.
I know this is a difficult time for everyone and we are all struggling in our own way, but if you are able to give a little the amount of stress and relief and gratitude it would generate in me would be immense.
Unfortunately I do not have outside family help, my partner is getting his hours as an art therapist to become licensed  at a work internship aka he pretty much works for free. He has also helped with what he can. 
In the past when I've raised money I've read tarot or provided a service of some kind, baking cakes, et cetera, this time I cannot. 
I have never had a registry of any kind to celebrate anything or asked anyone to celebrate me in any way that was monetary. I'm very proud and opinionated as my friends know, so know that the fact that I am doing this is because I really need help.
Thank you and Goddess bless.
