Breast Cancer Survivor Needs Help with Medical Bills

My Story:

I am a 48-year-old married woman, and I am a stepmom to two children, one of which lives with us and is finishing his last year of college. My husband works for the Library System and he is also trying to get his master's degree online. We have four beautiful dogs that are my entire world. We are active in our neighborhood and help as much as possible. In my free time I am an avid gardener. Recently, I have undergone treatment for breast cancer.

To pay for my cancer treatment, my husband got the best insurance the county offered. Since then, we have paid our bills, taken out loans, and put the remainder on credit cards to keep my treatment going. Unfortunately, my chemotherapy treatments had an adverse effect on my teeth, which has been expensive to fix. Currently, we need help with my medical bill that I cannot afford.

I have no eloquent way of describing what this financial assistance would mean to us. Getting just one more bill paid would let me breathe easier. My husband always tells me to worry about getting better, but I supported myself alone for too long and I cannot bear the thought of the financial burden this has had on our family. I would be beyond grateful to receive anything that keeps us in our home and out of medical bankruptcy. Thank you all for your generosity.
