Too Sick to Beat Real Life Street Fighter

Hey, I'm Ev. I have a severe chronic back injury, a rare autoimmune disease that causes my t-cells to attack my own body, a partially ruptured Achilles tendon, and a slew of other health issues that have rendered me unable to work. Our landlord had to take out a variable rate mortgage, and isn't able to keep up with the payments- the rent has gone up a lot, and he says he will have to sell by June. I am seeing a team of specialists in Stanford who are using my blood to try to develop a new biologic immunosuppressant to treat me, and hope to have a human clinical trial in the next year. Most doctors and hospitals know next to nothing about my disease, which is Hidradenitis Suppurativa. Even a lot of what you find on the internet isn't true. (I don't recommend doing a google image search.) I need to try to stay in the area where the study is happening- even if they don't find a cure in my lifetime, I want to help ensure that in the future, no kids will go through what I did as a child, or what I and others are suffering as adults. I need to stay where I can be effectively treated, too.

I have lost the bit of income SSDI allows me to make, and what I get from SSDI isn't a living wage, let alone something that allows for savings.

I need to stay off the streets- I'm too ill to survive homelessness. I need to save up some money for moving, and I need to try to keep surviving in the meantime, too. Some friends asked me to set this up, so here we are!
Thank you so much for any help you are willing or able to give, and either way, I hope you have a life filled with compassion 
and joy.
-Ev
