Please help Sarah cover her medical expenses--she's a good person who hit a rough patch.

Hi GiveForward community! I'm sorry about the lack of a personal photo, but I'm that ashamed of myself for asking for help when others are even more in need. Sadly, I'm in serious need of financial assistance because I've been unemployed for 2 years and just starting to recover from a serious car accident that has left me with $2000 in medical bills that I can't pay (when it rains, it pours, but I'm incredibly thankful to be alive). I applied for charity care from the hospital and doctors, but was denied because I earned "too much" from unemployment. I'm already considering a deed in lieu of foreclosure on my home because of how tight my budget has become and how much my savings have dwindled while I job hunt. I've cut out all expenses except for food, and that's on its way out, too (I won't qualify for any assistance until my unemployment benefits run out next week and I've been late on payments across the board for 90 days, which makes no sense to me). I just don't know where the money for the bills is going to come from, and I definitely have no idea when I'm going to find even a part-time job. This is very hard for me to ask for help because I am an optimistic, responsible person, but I'm starting to crack very badly:( I need to keep at least some of the collectors away, and the medical ones are hopefully the easiest ones to escape from. Thank you so, so much for whatever assistance you can provide--you'll likely never meet me, but please know how much your generosity improved my life and that I will donate to charity again as soon as I am able to do so.
