I Was Hospitalized After a Car Accident, & Now, I'm Behind On My Rent & Need Help!

My Story:

Currently, I live on my own, but I do have my husky to keep me company! I love my dog a lot, and when I'm not working, we love to go on adventures together. I've been out of work for a while now due to a recent incident. On May 31st, my friend and I got into an extremely serious car accident which resulted in me having to receive emergency surgery. I had internal bleeding in my stomach area, a small portion of my stomach had to be removed because it was damaged. My colon and small intestine also received damage in the accident. I spent a total of 10 days in the hospital.

Being out of work, as well as the costs associated with my surgery and recovery, has caused me a lot of stress. Right now, I'm not in any position to be able to pay my rent that's about to come due for July, and I won't be able to return to work for at least a week or two. I'm afraid that if I'm not able to pay my rent when it's due, then my landlord will begin eviction proceedings against me.

It's only a matter of time before I'm able to get back on my feet and get back to work, but I'm afraid time will run out on paying my rent before then. However, this assistance would make sure that time doesn't run out for me, and it would give me an opportunity to return to work so that I can return to the stability and self-sufficient life that I'm used to. This would be a life-changing event for me, and it would get me through what has been physically and emotionally speaking one of the most difficult times in my life. Words cannot describe how grateful I would be for this help, and all I can think to say right now is just thank you in advance for your consideration and compassion.
