fighting cancer

On February 8th around 2:30 am, after getting home from working at the Pourhouse, I was hit by a car driven by a theif in my neighborhood that was stealing from one of my neighbors garage. I called the police but even though I gave a physical description, the make, model, and year of the vehicle, and a partial license plate, they said there is nothing they can do. The guys got away. The accident caused me to go to the hospital with what we thought was only a broken knee. While at the hospital the doctors diagnosed me with bone cancer, I had a tumor the size of a golf ball inside of my femur where it connects in the knee. I have gone under a complete knee transplant and cannot work for the next few month's at least, if not longer. We still dont know how severe the cancer is or if I will have to do chemo, but as of right now they believe they were able to remove all of the bone containing the tumor and cancer cells. I have a family of 6 that I provide for and now I can't. We have used all of our savings towards the hospital bills and now I need all the help I can get. I am the type of person who normally doesn't reach out for help, I'm usually the one that people come to when they need help. Anything would really be appreciated right now as we are trying to keep the kids lives as normal as possible. If you are not able to donate it's quite understandable, we just ask if you would please share. ♡
