Stomach surgery number 7

Hi everyone, if you know me, you know I hate asking for help but I am desperate.  I am due to have surgery number 7 in 5 years to correct my abdomen. I am now with a team of specialists, praying they will get it right. The hospital co-pay is going to be over 8000.00 dollars. As most of you know, I am a teacher's asst and do not make much money. This bill is half of my income for the year. 
The surgery will be large, almost 6 hours long. They will need to peel back my skin from my abdomen muscle (like peeling an orange) and dig out my fasha,  which is stuck under my ribs. They will then release this from my sides. I have 2 large hernia holes in my stomach muscle and my small intestines are twisted.
( this is why I look 8 months pregnant) They will then try to untwist my small intestine,  move my organs back where they belong, stitch the muscle back together, re attach the fasha and place a titanium plate to hold everything in.
It will be a very difficult surgery and i can not have the surgery until I raise the co-pay.  I live in major pain every day. I constantly have to keep a binding on my stomach to hold everything in. I am usually in bed by 6 pm, to stop gravity from pulling everything down and out. It all shifts
If you can help me in any way I would greatly appreciate it.  Any donation will be a help even if its just 1.00.  Norman will be out of work taking care of me and no income will be coming in. 
Thank you for reading this and please keep me in your prayers, I am unable to receive any pain management other than oral pills because of my intestines being twisted. It will be a long recovery. 
Thank you again,
