Help Nursing Assistant With Rent While Recovering From Surgery

My Story:

I am a single woman who lives alone. I work full time to provide for myself. I am also a devoted nursing assistant who loves to help people. I work full time to provide for myself and I'm lucky to have a career where I can help people as well.

I am seeking assistance with paying my February 2019 rent. On November 30, 2018 I had surgery to remove an encephalocel and repair a cranial birth defect. I was in the hospital 8 days - 1 in surgery, 5 in ICU with a lumbar drain and 2 in regular recovery room. I will be able to go back to work February 1, 2019. Unfortunately, I do not have enough sick and vacation hours to cover all of my expenses while I am out of work recovering. Also my work does not offer short term disability benefits. I live paycheck-to-paycheck. This surgery was a complete surprise and I did not have any emergency funds. I really need your assistance with my rent.

Unfortunately, my landlord is a very large corporation and they do not care about their tenants personal circumstances. If I don't pay my February rent on time I will be evicted. I have nowhere else to go and no funds to move. Your help will allow me to stay in my home, and help me to recover stress free.
