Surgery To Prevent Blindness

I'm losing my eyesight and going blind due to very complicated eye problems. My personal condition and necessary surgery is very unique. I have both Medicare and a secondary plan with Anthem Blue Cross. They are covering the very basic surgery and consider the additional $15,000 that the Opthamologist requires for me to move forward "elective." I need this money in the next 3 weeks.  I have gotten three other opinions and all three medical doctors/ Opthamologists that do this surgery agree with my Opthamologist and DO NOT consider it elective. And they have found it too complicated for them to do. They all consider it required. I need an additional $15,000 in total to cover additional required surgical expenses that aren't covered by Medicare nor my additional Anthem Blue Cross policy to move forward and prevent myself from going blind in the very near future. I'm almost 74 years old and living off of Social Security. I have no other available funds. My eyesight is deteriorating daily. It is very frightening. I hope and pray every day that loving, generous, kindhearted people will step up to fund my eye surgery. I am told my eyesight can be restored with this surgery.
Please, please help me. I am a legal orphan with no children, or parents. I am an only child so I have no brothers or sisters to turn to and my beloved husband died fifteen years ago from stomach cancer. Go fund me is the only place I know of to get help. Please help me. I have no one to take me to the surgery or pick me up so am using UBER and Medical UBER.

May God bless you all.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
