I desperately need some help finding funds to pay for meds and colostomy supplies and possibly some chemo treatments til I get medicaid back

I am a 41 year old mother of 2 children. My son Matthew is 15 and my daughter Alyson is 21. Essentially I have 2 more children that are my ex- husbands. Savanna is 4 and we fell in love with each other the first time we met. She calls me "Mommy". Daniel is his other child and we raised him from the time he was 9 til he was 15.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer in May 2011. I had my first surgery then and was fitted with a colostomy bag. One week later I ended up back in the hospital with pulmonary embelysms in my lungs. They ran another test while I was admitted and found there was still another tumor that needed removal. I went through 5 weeks of chemo and radiation. Had to where a chemo pump 24/7 for 5 weeks and got to radiation treatment M-F for 5 weeks as well. I underwent a second surgery to remove the second tumor on 10/28. I developed some complications from the surgery. Once I recovered from those I began my second round of chemo on January 31, 2012.

However, as of March 1st, Medicaid completely cut my benefits off and I have not been able to get my chemo treatments, get any of my meds, or have the tests done to see if my blood thinner levels are ok (too low=blood clot, too high=internal bleeding. I am almost out of colostomy supplies which run almost $200 just for the bags and the wafers that attach to your body. My medications easily run $300 a month and if I need the Marinol that makes it $800.
