I'm Out of Work Recovering from Surgery, but I Need Help Keeping My Insurance Please!

My Story:

I am a single mother of two little girls. I live in Tulsa but work nights at Macys in Owasso, which is a pretty long drive for me. I love to write and have hopes of continuing my education while I climb the ladder at Macys as far as they will allow me to go within their company. One day I pray to become an example of a financially secure, independent, God fearing woman to my children, and I pray that may God bless me so that I may return the blessings I've received ten-fold.

I work full time nights and have health insurance through my employer but have just found out that I failed to sign up for short term disability. I've experienced some medical problems as of late, and I've had to miss work after recovering from a relatively major surgery. Without the short-term disability benefits, I'm not receiving any income while I'm out of work, and I'm worried about being able to keep up with my bills going forward. Right now, I'm struggling to pay for my utilities like internet and electric bills, but most importantly, I can't cover my insurance premiums, and I'm worried that I'm going to lose my coverage and that my healthcare costs will skyrocket. So, I'm humbly asking for assistance with my health insurance bill, my electric bill, and my internet bill please.

This assistance would allow me to focus on recovering and getting back to work, but it would also ensure that my healthcare remains affordable. If my health insurance lapses, the cost of my treatments will go through the roof, and it will permanently ruin my financial situation. I would feel so blessed to receive this assistance, and I promise to pay this blessing forward as soon as I can get back to work. Thank you all in advance for your kindness and compassion.
