Trying to Fund a Thyroidectomy for Erica who does not have insurance.

Erica does not have insurance and has a nodule on her thyroid. The total cost ot the surgery with doctors, anesthesia, lab work, and hospital stay is 17600.00.  To actually get the process started she will need a minimum of 8667 down and the rest she will be able to pay out over the next year.  The test results have come back that the nodule is complex and that it encompasses the entire right lobe of her thyroid, and that warrants removal to test it for cancer.  No one will insure her because of the pre-existing condition, and it is just risky to wait too long.  She is right now saving her own money and selling her doll collection to try to raise funds. We are also trying to negotiate a lower rate for the hospital stay which is the majority of the cost (14000.00).  She is a nursing student who has a 4.0 gpa right now and is working full time, but as a temporary employee because the city government she works for has had a hiring freeze for 2 years, which is why she does not have insurance. Anything will help, and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you .
