Recovering financially from emergency surgery

On Monday, November 30th, I had to have a crown installed on one of my teeth to deal with pain that was so overwhelming I was unable to sleep without painkillers and being up all night. While I'm grateful I was able to get this done, it completely wiped out our savings, leaving us in unsteady territory for bills, unable to acquire transportation, and limiting us entirely. This fundraiser is to help us get back on our feet, because at the moment I am out of work.

It's very hard for me to ask for money like this, but with Covid-19 raging and the government doing nothing to help, this is the only place I can turn to. Every donation goes to keeping us afloat, and it means more to me than I can possibly explain. 

UPDATE: After a few days of excessive pain, I had another exam and it was determined that I need a root canal, which is going to make this cost even more- more than I have. Thank you to everyone who is helping, you are all truly saints.

The goal is set at what the cost of the surgeries
