Karen's Stomach Cancer Fund

I was just diagnosed with stage 3 Gastric Adenocarcinoma.  I have to go for 3 months of aggressive chemotherapy and then surgery to remove the 5cm tumor and then another 3 months of chemotherapy.  I am self employed and the doctor told me that I probably would not be able to work.  My insurance is not even going to pay all my bills for this.  I just got a phone call from the Cancer Institute pharmacy and they told me with my insurance my prescription for nausea for the chemo would be $500.  I need some help with my medical bills, utility bills and rent for the next 6 months.  Since I am self employed and in sales I will not be able to bring in any income.  I am 65years old and do not receive social security.  So can you please help me.
