Cancer survivor Job searcher

Dear Sammy,

I am 44 year old colon cancer survivor of four years and counting. All though I had a job and medical insurance at the time I came down with cancer, I still have a quarter of million dollars in medical bills after insurance paid there share. Coming on five years now cancer free, strong and still fairly young I find myself with no job and unemployment benefits soon to be depleted. It will only be a matter of time before I am homeless. I have never been without a job my entire working adulthood life. I want to work!! I need to work!!, can you help??
