Help Windy with medical costs

Hello!  My name is Windy.  I am a wife, mother, grad student and nurse.  My entire life, I have been a "helper".  I have also always been a hard worker.  I got my first "real" job when I was 14.  Throughout my college career, I worked full time while I was attending school, sometimes, picking up part time work when we needed extra funds.  Currently, I work as part of a rapid response team, which responds to emergencies throughout the entire hospital.  It's a tough job, but not nearly as hard as having to tell my family that I have cancer.  Still harder is asking you all for help, but several friends encouraged me to create a gofundme page.  I'm usually the one that does the helping.  I'm not very good at sitting still or letting others take care of me.  I know that I'm blessed.  My general health is good.  I have a great support network, and I have insurance.  The problem is that my insurance has a $6,000 deductible, and it will only pay 70%, after that.  I also will get short term disability payments, but those are only 60% of my normal pay.  I know I'm lucky.  At my stage, I have a great chance of being cured with just surgery.  I have to admit, though, that I am so worried about finances that I have seriously considered not having my surgery.  We are currently a single income family, and I feel guilty that I will be the cause of our family going into such debt.  I'm sad that, while I recover, I won't be able to take care of our children.  I won't even be able to hold them.  To be worried about feeding them and keeping the lights on is nearly enough to make me forego the surgery.  I look at their sweet faces, though, and I know I have to fight for them.  I have to try.  If you can help, it will be appreciated more that I would ever be able to express.  If you can't, I understand.  In either case, if you can spread the word, it would be an amazing gift!  The support and good wishes I have received, already, have made a huge impact on my ability to carry on.  Love to all of you!
