Help Zayna live with Metastatic Breast Cancer.

In October 2017 I found a lump in my breast. That lump turned out to be Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I did everything that the doctors recommended. I had a Mastectomy, Chemotherapy, and Radiation, which ended in July 2018. Cancer not only wiped me out physically, but left me in tremendous debt. I've been a teacher for the last couple of decades, and did not have access to disability insurance. I relied upon the kindness of my community for food,  rent, and taking care of my 9 year old little girl. They even helped me buy birthday presents for Holland (my daughter), when I had nothing to give her.  I went back to work immediately, and have been in the process of repaying my debts.

For the last 6 months I've been experiencing  pain in my legs. I was informed on February 21, 2019, that the breast cancer has spread to my bones and lungs. Because of the aggressive type of cancer that I have,  I will need to do more surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. While nobody can predict the future, I do know that this cancer will significantly reduce my lifespan. There is no coming back from this. I should spend the next 6 months of my life taking care of myself, getting treatment, and spending time with my family, but I'm still trying to recover financially from my last cancer treatment. 

I have cancer in my leg bones, and I'm in danger of fracturing, or breaking  bones as I do daily activities. Work is not going to be an option for me, but if I don't work, I don't get paid. There is no backup here. I don't qualify for assistance of any type. I desperately need financial help. As of March, I will no longer receive any pay, and I'm reaching out to the kindness of strangers. I need financial help to pay medical expenses, rent, food, and basic bills. The amount of debt a person goes into with a major illness is astronomical, I have been faced with this twice in the last 16 months. 
Please help me to spend my final days with some dignity, and a peace of mind. I don't want to worry about being homeless during this time, or not being able to feed my daughter. I beg you to contribute what you can. Nothing is too small. Even $2 will help. I also beg you to share this with as many people as you can. Obviously, time is of the essence for me, so the more people that receive this message, the better chance I have getting some help. Thank you for time, and feel free to contact me with any questions. I will be updating this status regularly.
