Help with cancer bills

    THE PHOTO is from 2 years ago at Easter. Cancer has a way of changing everything.
     I have always been pretty medically  healthy. and am 62.  I could always wait out any medical problem because they would resolve themselves.  6 months ago i started feeling weak.  People told me i looked pale
and bad.  i didn't think much of i and they were over reacting.   When i
took breaths, i could not get enough oxygen to my lungs.   
     My lungs kept getting worse. About 4 month ago, my lung capacity
deteriorated inability to moving from my bed to the bedroom door.
     Finally someone told me i HAVE to go to the doctor.  So i did. 
First thing, he wanted to direct admit me to the hospital.  I said no,
i'll think about it. I think people are sometimes overly reactive--and i just want to wait and see.  By the time i got home from the Dr.'s his staff and the hospital called 3 times to tell me i needed to come to the hospital
that night--as a direct admit.  The hospital was waiting.  I said i'll come
tomorrow.  so i did. 
      When the nurse showed me my room i was very compromised .  They took bloods and  the results were that i was 60% out of blood which is  why i could not breathe.  Blood carries oxygen and i didn't have blood.  They infused 5 units of blood in the next few hours, and i was put "first scheduled" for the diagnostic team the next morning.  They did a full body  MRI. The MRI identified "urgently suspicious" for  bowel cancer.  Biopsy identified it was  between late 3 and close to stages  4 . 
    Doctors identified a 2nd bad  site but put that on hold because of the progress of the first cancer.  After 8 hours of surgery The doctors first 
wanted a second site surgery the next day-but said my body could not manage  I was in the hospital for 11 days. That's longer than any
vacation i  ever took.   
     I was discharged with an oncology follow up the next week.   This was all surreal, so i'm :" yeah whatever." Clueless to the whole picture.   This all came out of NO-where.   I've been the healthy one...
     My medical bills are all in collection, and i have no money to pay.  I was barely scraping by when i was well.     If there is anyway, you can please
help me pay the bills God bless you.  I have further testing on the progress of the first site, and now on the second site on Tuesday(8/14) and see the oncologist the following week.  Don't know what is going on with    my chest area.  Everything i eat i throw it right back up. Not pretty.
I drink the walmart brand of high protein meal replacement. 
      GOFUNDME  is my last hope to pay all the bills.  i would
so very much appreciate your support.  May the Lord's Hand rest in
peace on all of us.  Thank you for any contributions and prayers.  I never saw this coming.    love, maureen
