Single Woman Needs Help With Medical Bill After infection and Hospital Stay

My Story:

I am a 63 year old single woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I work full time at a local Ophthalmologist's office. I live alone, and support myself.

I earn enough money to live paycheck to paycheck but I have no savings. Last Spring, because of the Rheumatoid Arthritis medication I was on, I had a staph infection in my spine and almost died. I was in ICU for one week and a Rehabilitation Hospital for one week. I could not work for two months. This was a severe hardship for me. I have several hospital bills I am making monthly payments on. I need your help with a larger medical bill.

Without this bill I would have more money to pay my regular monthly expenses. I fear I will not be able to pay my rent, car payment or medicine expenses. I've considered getting a second job but with my health and not fully recovered from the staph infection I'm not sure I would be able to keep up. Your help would be a blessing.

As of 2018-12-16, this application has been fully funded!
