I have found a web site listing some sites for free dental care.  You'll need to check if any of them are close enough to try.

http://www.freemedicalcamps.com/

Another idea - medical schools sometimes offer free medical care to those who volunteer to be treated by their students, although seldom with help for transportation costs.  You could check if there's one close enough for this to be useful, which trains dentists.

I don't expect all of them to offer dentures, though.

I don't know if any of these are close enough you can use them.

For now though, I'd recommend watching the news to see if the hurricane approaching Texas is likely to come close enough to give you more problems than whistling winds and heavy rain.

I've found a few web sites that might help with the diabetes:

http://alt-support-diabetes.org/new.php

http://www.tudiabetes.org/ 

http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/

http://www.diabetes.org/

Note that most cookbooks that claim to be good for diabetics are based on the old idea that avoiding sugar, but not easily digested forms of starch, is good for controlling type 2 diabetes.  More recent research has shown that the easily digested forms of starch digest about as fast as sugar, and into the same types of simple sugars.  Therefore, cookbooks labelled low-carb usually work better for controlling type 2 diabetes.  Generally, only various forms of insulin can control type 1 diabetes, though, so you may want to ask her doctor which type she has.

The assisted living facility I'm now in is thinking of adding a building to house seniors who don't need assisted living yet.  Would you like to discuss adding a senior day care center to that building or nearby with them?

Are you willing to consider moving for jobs, probably to Alabama?

http://www.cottageassistedliving.com/

They employ cooks (who usually cook for a group, with little help except a second cook for the rest of the week)  and homemakers (mostly women, apparantly with little training except a few days they provide).  The cooks are usually expected to work 12 hours a day, but only half the days every two week period.  The homemakers usually work 8 hour shifts, but sometimes two shifts in a row if the next homemaker doesn't arrive.  Some locations might have jobs for both.

For now, though, you'd better watch the weather reports to see if the hurricane approaching Texas is expected to get close enough to your area that you can expect more than whistling winds and heavy rain.

Sorry I can't offer more direct financial help.

Email addresses are not recommended on this site.

Something I've read about in the US that you might check whether it's available close enough to you - medical schools sometimes let people volunteer for medical treatment from their students, usually free except for any costs for transportation getting there and back.

Also, here's a site where you can volunteer to help test new medicines, usually free:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/

Available in many countries, but you'll have to check how close to you and whether any of the medicines being tested are suitable for treating your cancer.

The VA hospitals offer some free medical care to veterans, so you may want to check if there are any close enough you can go there.

Also, some free medical care sites are listed here, so you may want to check if any are close enough you can use them:

Even though I used to live in Raleigh, I never became familiar with housing for the homeless in that area.

You might check if any local assisted living places offer jobs requiring little training.  The assisted living place I now live in has one employee who looks about 8 months pregnant.

Some medical schools let people volunteer for free care from their students.  You might also want to check if any are within reach.

You may qualify for helping test some candidates for new medicines, usually free.  See here for details:

Are you aware that the disability program I'm aware of seldom approves anyone during the first year after applying?  It took over a year for me, even after I got some help from my brother-in-law the lawyer.

You may be able to get some free medical care and dental care.  Check here to find out whether any of the sites that offer such care are within reach:

There are people out here, but have you noticed that the people on Aidpage needing money heavily outnumber those able to offer a significant amount?

This may offer you some help AFTER you get a working car or are able to find someone to drive you far enough:
