Support our family during my healing from surgery

Aloha family.  I had an appendectomy (appendix removed) last Friday.  Now I am at home recovering with my family.  I cannot lift more than 10 lbs and therefore can't do my job which is construction work, or give massage at the school I'm finishing up with.   I have about a 4-6 week recovery period where I cannot work and make money, and my fiance is 7 months pregnant and needs to slow down.   This is why I'm reaching out for financial support for our family! 

Our family needs funding ASAP.  The money we receive will be used to pay our rent, bills, and food for the next month while I recover.  This is an urgent situation and we really need some assistance during this transition.  My fiance, Serena, has been working so hard for the both of us giving massage and she's at a point where she has to stop and nurture our baby.  It's really vulnerable for me to reach out like this, because I feel shame that I am unable to provide for our needs right now.  So, in humility, I accept your support with gratitude.

Thank you from our family for reading this and for supporting us financially!
