Support for Surgery

The picture above is me just before the cancer. I do have a picture of myself during the cancer, just before treatment. I can't bear to look at it.  So I'm going with this one.

I have been trying for more than a year to save up enough to allow me to get surgery on my face and dental surgery. This is to correct the damage from the cancer and its cure. If it is not one thing it is another. I live in pain every hour and day of the year. I can't eat like a normal person or eat healthy foods. I have tried everything for a year.  I have to step out of the way I have been doing things. It is not working. If I am to survive, a new approach is needed. I cannot tough it out anymore. Surgery on my face and dental surgery are the answers to this pain. But I cannot stand the idea of being homeless and losing everything I have, my family photos, memorable things from my childhood and past. I can't stand that thought. I lost so much from the tornado a few years ago. This was during the 24/7 caregiver portion of my life. I moved home to take care of my mother. I saved her and her cats. Later, after I found a temporary place for them, where they'd be watched over, I went to work salvaging the house. I managed to find the picture boxes in the wreckage of the house. I found other things from my childhood and teenage years. I dug in the wreckage for days. At the time, I got so tired of people asking about it, I wrote up an essay on the experience and would give them a copy instead of having to talk about it. Here it is if you're interested: http://rpbird.com/downloads/How_It_Was.pdf

Thank you very much if you can help out and help me raise enough money to live on during the operations and recovery. I think three months is enough. If you have any ideas please tell me.

Thanks!
