URGENT call for help - ASAP

The good news is that I paid my rent. No eviction and no need to move or send my dog away. 

Now I have to bring in a caregiver - app $500 - so I will leave this open another couple of days. Kaiser won't let me go home unless I have someone check me out of the hospital and vow to be with me 24 hrs/day for 2 weeks. So, I am having a friend come out from Missouri. She has an MA and isn't finding  much work where she is and will be deciding if she would like to move to Oregon. Anyway, I will need the help .

September 13 is the hip-replacement operation! 


I am a professional writer -- a 68-year-old female with no family and few local friends because I have been partly disabled for 2 years and don’t get out much.

I have lived in my apartment on Sexton Mountain Drive for 5 years and have never been late with my rent. I make too much money to qualify for social assistance. However, I am in a perfect storm of bad luck and will be homeless within days.

I am scheduled for a hip replacement on September 13. I can't walk or drive because I  have a severely deteriorated hip joint thanks to an injury 2 years ago. That means I can’t drive Uber or get an office job. Not until the end of September assuming I can get the hip replacement.

My two long-time clients went dark last month and I lost those sources of income. I normally have no problem getting clients because I am so well-regarded that people always come to me. Nothing happening this summer, though.

My bad luck happened at the worst time because I had to spend down my savings on something I didn't get paid for.

To make matters worse, I got caught in a bank NSF trap and have been charged for close to $800 in NSF fees only.

Just missed being evicted thanks to all my wonderful generous friends.

Unless I can come up with some money from a writing gig I will be forcibly removed from my apartment. I can't walk, and I can't drive so there is little I can do but sit on the street corner and cry.

 I will gladly write professional marketing, sales, business plan, SEC compliance documents, etc.  in return for pay. My websites: www.aBusinessPlan.com , www.WebPropertyInvestor.com , www.VerifiedWriters.pro
