Thank you all so much for all your help. I don't think anyone ever expects to have to battle cancer it always comes as an awful surprise. Your donations have made my life so much easier. It has been a stressful road physically, mentally and financially. This has changed the way I see how many people our out there helping others. When I'm back on my feet I will definitely be back on here doing donations myself. Thank you al so very much!
I'm Battling Breast Cancer, but I'm on the Verge of Losing My Health Insurance & Need Help!
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January of 2021, and I've been unable to work as a result. I work in a hotel and have had to go on leave while I undergo chemo and radiation treatment because I can't be exposed to Covid-19. My husband is also unable to work currently because he has emphysema; however, he does receive disability benefits. My paychecks were a major source of income that we were using to pay miscellaneous bills and our health insurance that we get through healthcare.gov. Right now, we're living solely on my husband's disability checks, and that's made it difficult to cover the cost of our health insurance and other bills too.
Right now, my biggest concerns are being able to pay our health insurance and our car payment because both of those are vital to my health and recovery from cancer. Before my cancer, we were able to take care of all of our bills, but now we're on the verge of losing our health coverage at what couldn't be a worse time. If we lose our health insurance, I could be facing medical bills from my cancer treatment that my husband and I could never hope to pay off in this lifetime. So, I'm humbly requesting help with our health insurance payment and with our car payment please.
Without health insurance, the cost of my treatment will go through the roof, and without a car, I won't even be able to get to and from my treatments. I'm trying my best to beat cancer, but with these bills weighing on me, it's very difficult. I'm worried that the stress is starting to take a serious toll on my health, so I would feel very relieved and grateful to receive this assistance. This is truly something that I could never forget, and I would like to thank everyone who lends us a hand for your generosity and kindness.
