Single Mom Needs Help Due To Daughters Illness

I am a single mom of 2 kids, and I'm in dire need of emergency help to be able to pay my rent, utilities, bills and other expenses that are due by 1/3/20. These past 2 months have been absolutely brutal for us. It began with me losing my job on 10/15/19 (waitress). Then on 10/31/19, I became very ill and had to pay out of pocket to go to the doctor (I can't afford insurance) and found out I had the flu. That put me out for 5 days, and not even being able to do Door Dash (my side job), it put me further behind.

3 weeks ago, I found out that we had lost all of our benefits (both of my kids medicaid and food help) due to me not sending in documents they requested. We have never had our benefits cut off, and it was an honest mistake on my part b/c I was dealing with so much. So that put us with no help for doctors or food. But my family did help us with buying us groceries and during this time the battery also went out on my car, and they bought me a new battery for my car as well.

I finally found a job and started to work on 11/11/19. Then on 11/30/19, my 6 yo daughter Jaasiel woke up very sick, so I again had to pay out of pocket to take her to the doctor and get her medication, which put me back down financially again to almost nothing. She was sick for 3 days, went to school on Wednesday 12/4/19, and the next day woke up with a high fever again and couldn't walk. Her doctor told me to take her to the ER. She was admitted into the hospital on 12/5/19. She was diagnosed with myositis, which is when the antibodies that were attacking the flu virus in her body, then turned and started to attack her muscles (which is why her legs hurt and she couldn't walk).

We also found out that she had contracted the influenza virus A and then got the influenza virus B a few days later. That is why her body was working overtime to attack the flu virus and then started to attack her muscles. Her white blood cell count was a 1.4 (it should be a 3.5 or higher), so she was in the hospital for 3 days, and we were discharged last night at 7pm on 12/7/19. We have to see her PCP on Monday morning to see when she can go back to school.

This has made me miss 5 days of work and, and they have been very nice in working with me and this medical emergency since I just started this new job not even a month ago. I also do not receive any of our paid holidays yet (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years) b/c I am a new employee and haven't been there 60 days.
I have used all of my money to pay Novembers rent and bills that was due 12/1/19, and with job loss, my illness, my daughters illness and hospitalization, missing many days at work to care for her, no holiday pay, and my checks that I do receive are very little.... We really need help to get rent paid, utilities, bills and other needs paid by 1/1/20. 

My rent is $1,029.. Utilities are around $200.. Along with other bills, food, gas and needs to get us all caught up so nothing will be cut off and we wont lose our apartment. I take pride in myself being a single mom, working 2 jobs and always taking care of my business.. This would mean so much to us if you could help us with this fundraiser.

If you feel led to donate to us, I thank you so much. We are having faith that God will provide for us during this very rough season, for He will never leave us nor forsake us. Anything that you can give will help, we also would love to have you pray for us too. Thank you very much and may God Bless you greatly for your kindness and compassion.
