Tumor Removal and Medical Costs

I am creating this GoFundMe in hopes that a village will be able to help my family. I recently found out I have a large pelvic tumor that is putting pressure on my appendix and intestines. I need surgery to remove the mass. The surgeon wants a CT completed. I work for a small business and we do not have health insurance or even PTO/Sick days available. I am asking for help with the cost of the CT which is 1600 if made in payments, reduced to 600 if I can pay in full. I am married and have 4 children. My husband is our sole provider since I have been out of work the last week and will be our sole provider until I recover from surgery. He is using every penny of his earnings to cover our bills, food, and pay towards the surgery I need. The state unfortunately says that we are over income for Tenncare or State Assistance. So, being as we are losing my chunk of income and also having more money going to the hospital, the surgeon, prescriptions, etc., I thought I would put this out there and see if my village of friends and family would like to donate small amounts to help me cover the CT needed. Over the years of working with our youth and in the medical field, I have come across people in worse situations than mine so I am not going to dwell on the negatives. I am going to focus on the positives. If you are able to help my family, we will forever be grateful and repay you in any way we can. If you are not able to help my family, we still love you and ask that you send a little prayer up for strength during this time!
