To stay in my house until I die.

On November 17th I had emergency surgery. I went into the hospital doubled over in pain and came out without a colon. The news was not good. After 11 years fighting stage 4 metastatic ovarian cancer, the cancer is winning. What's next? 
There are no treatment options left and I have been sent home to die. And that's exactly where I want to die—at home. I need your help to make that happen. I have not been able to work more than part time for several years and I'm at the end of my savings. There are house payments to be made, utilities to be paid, medical co-pays, health insurance premiums (Uff da! Not the time to let that lapse!), funeral expenses. And nothing left. I'm living on my disability payment and it's not enough to cover household expenses. As a single woman, I have nothing to fall back on.
The first of the month is coming quickly and I can't do it alone. I would be very grateful if there is anything you can do to help.
