Mom of 3 forced out of work due to brain cancer. we need help!!!

Requesting: $500

Location: Trussville, AL

November of 2013 I was diagnosed with pituitary adenoma brain cancer. At the time I had 3 years left in pharmacy school and working making IV drugs at a local hospital. There was no time to make any decisions. It was found on a Tuesday and on Friday the tumor was coming out along with placing a shunt. I had no choice to quit working immediately. As time has went on during the past year I've gotten worse. My memory, ability to think and just do daily chores is sometimes impossible. My medications are astronomical! I feel like a failure because I didn't prepare for this and my funds quickly depleted. I have filed for ssi but hear it can take a year. I don't know where to turn in the meantime. I feel like there have to be people in more need than me and my kids but my mom pushed me to seek help by telling me I've paid my debt to society by the lives I work to save. I sure hope so! If Im blessed with help I need any and all help anyone can offer. All of my utilities are being turned off. My pantry is bare. I could handle a light job but my car won't let out of 2nd gear. My house needs a lot of work. I need some personal things, co pays and such. I have such a long story I'm not sure what all to put here.

When I got that cancer monster that my grandmother and aunt also had, there was nothing left to do but I operate. I had only been out of pre pharm school and working 5 months so there was no program work could help me with. I get no government assistance and have never got child support. I've recently began all that with the disability process. I'm only 33 years old. My kids are 14, 11, and 8. I guess most importantly I need help with rent, car insurance, utilities, groceries and winter clothes and shoes for all of us. I need help with medication, doctor visits, I desperately need a new pair of glasses and my car worked on. That would allow me to pick up a simple job to help make ends meet. I have no family that I can reach out to. Anything anyone can help or offer my kids would be a blessing. I'm so scared and not a member of a church or anything so I don't know where to start.

I have fallen upon the hardest time of my life, when it is supposed to be the prime of my life. I have thought and survived cancer 3 times so far. This one just happen to get me while my kids need things, car is falling apart, house needs work, I'm single with no help and my savings are gone. Hopefully I will get disability soon. But until then I don't know where to turn or what to so. They said to ask for exactly what I need, I guess I will make a list: 1. Rent 2.utilities 3.groceries 4.medicine, doc and dental bills 5. Clothes for kids 6.glasses for me 7.clothes for me 8.personal things like, toiletries, paper towels, detergent, cleaners, we are in much need of living room furniture if anyone has some they want outta the way. Please do anything you can to help us. I just know someone will because I've done this type of thing to help before. God bless!! does not verify individual user claims for accuracy.
