Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Post by Hellen » Fri Sep 04, 2020 2:14 pm

Good morning. I reside in Newark, NJ. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a blood cancer, and had to take a leave of absence from my job. I am employed by Newark Public Schools and unfortunately could not collect state disability (I was denied). I recently contacted a lawyer who helped me to apply for SSDI as well as health care benefits for my Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
I have been out of work since November 2018. I have sought out resources through the Lymphoma society to help with my rent, which I am 3 months behind ($1,200/month) and most resources only pay up to $500.
My landlord has been very understanding up until this point and informed me on March 7, 2020 that he has decided to file for my eviction by August 15, 2020 and my 2 children and I will basically be homeless because we will have nowhere to go.
I have no financial means and although I receive disability through my union ($255/bi-weekly) it is not enough to cover my or medical needs or medications for the Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
I am praying for a miracle. With my chemo treatments and financial crisis, this is a very stressful time for me. I pray that you can help. I reached out to Catholic Charities but no one has corresponded to me.
