Please help me get my Hearing back!

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Meningioma Tumor in my Right Ear. I had first phase of surgery in March 2006, but lost my job with Metlife right after my short-term disability ran out due to my inability to drive to work.

Meningioma Tumors have gotten some press lately since some celebrities have come public about them, such as Cheryl Crow, Elizabeth Taylor and Mary Tyler Moore.

The Tumor grows very slowly and for most people there are no symptoms whatsoever, until its too late.

I spent 6 days in ICU at St.Josephs hospital in
Tampa with a Spinal Tap drain for 3 days. I was not able to walk for 2 days after surgery.

Since then i worry every day that Tumor is back since my ear leaks fluid and blood from time to time, although the ear leak is all the time. I require more treatment and hearing aid in order to gain hearing on my ear.

Unfortunately I have not had any medical insurance since I left Metlife and was laid off from my last job of 3.5 years in June.

Being on unemployment does not qualify me for Medicaid and I'm desperate for help.

PLEASE help me repair my hearing so that It can be easier to get another career. It is embarrassing to have smelly liquid draining out of my ear while at work.

It is also very difficult for me to hear my children as loud noises muffle all sounds.
