To help my husband continue medical care after cancer treatment and to try to get my own health taken care of so I can contnue to help him.

Good day. I understand there are so many people in great need these days, I am very embarrassed to be asking for help. I never thought I would have to ask strangers for a hand-up but my love for my husband and the constant emotional strain this has caused has humbled me enough to do so. My husband of 28 years was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011. He is a wonderful and selfless man who wanted to forgo treatment because of the costs associated with it and my own health issues. After much discussion with the doctor and many conversations with God, he had surgery to remove his entire prostate. We are now dealing with the post-op checkups and testing/treatments. So far, this medical crisis has totaled over $30,000. He also has an order for bloodwork before his next visit but two labs turned him away due to past due bills. We also owe his doctor and surgeon for the previous visits and treatments. On top of all this, I currently have a fractured pelvis and herniated discs and my spine and knee have cysts developing in them. I can not seek help because I do not have insurance nor do we have the money to pay for care for me. I physically suffer on a daily basis and suffer emotionally worrying about my husband. His mom just passed at the age of 90 a week ago and no one but my husband stepped forward to bury her properly. The money we put down was intended for houeshold bills and we borrowed the rest from an old co-worker of his to cover the rest. We now have that added monthly expense of paying him back but it was the right this to do. If there is anyone out there who can help us, please consider it. I know we are not owed or entitled to anything in this life but I just want my husband to be ok. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
