Need help raising money for medically necessary weight loss surgery that insurance chose to drop coverage for and all is now out of pocket.

I have been trying to loose weight since the birth of my youngest daughter 14 years ago. I have tried every diet out there to loose my weight with little to no success. I have had two different doctors tell me that weight loss surgery is what I need for me to lose my weight and regain my health. After going through all the hoops required by our insurance, on my pre-op physical appointment I learn our insurance had dropped all weight loss surgery benefits and we were going to be responsible for the cost of the surgery. I am 270 lbs with sleep apnea(which causes weight gain), hypothyroidism(which hinders weight loss), hormonal imbalance( which causes a slow metabolism), hypertension, and arthritic knees. I have started eating better and exercising (when I am not too exhausted or in too much pain) to help learn a healthy lifestyle. I desperately need help to reach my goal to pay for the in house cost of the surgery so I can get my health and life back and be able to be around for my daughters for a very long time.
