I need some help

Unfortunately, I find myself in a position to ask for help.  I have been out of work for over a month and today was told that my job is done.  My problem started out with a pain in my lower back and has now moved on to greater things.  I have had 2 MRI's and and Ultrasound, I am seeing a Chiro and will be seeing a Neuro Surgeon and Spine Specialist as well as my Primary.  I cannot walk standing straight.  I am using a cane.  The pain has been increasing to the piint where I have crawled to the bathroom and needed help getting back to bed.  I don't know what is wrong but I am in hopes that it will be corrected shortly.  I am on Social Security and receive Food Stamps.  Other than that everything is being shouldered by my son, Dante.  I have always prided myself on my work ethic and have done whatever I could to help those in need.  Now, it is my turn to ask for help.  I have set my goal at $1000 although I will need much more than that.  I need a transport chair, a shower seat and other things just to get by everyday.  If I need surgery Medicare only pays 80%.  At this moment I could not buy a candy bar.  Could I ask you to look deep in your heart and pockets and help an old friend?  Even $5 would help.  When I am back on my feet I will try to repay everyone.  Thanks and Merry Christmas.  I had to increase my goal, since new things are happening.  I have co-pays on tests that were unexpected.  I need to buy a bed, since my mattress on the floor is not a good idea, any longer.  I need to put up "disabled" items around the apartment - such as bars to grasp in tub.  I will be out of work indefinitely and the bills are adding up.  anyhelp would be apprciated.  Thanks to those who have sent donations and a plea to those who have not - just $1 would help.
