Answer

We are so sorry to hear about your health diagnosis and financial troubles.  Not knowing the terms of your insurance plans, the best advice we can give you is to reach out to your life insurance company to see if you qualify for accelerated life insurance under the terms of your plan.  Similarly, please call the Human Resources Company at your husband's employer regarding his disability insurance options.  Finally, call the Bank and ask for a supervisor to discuss your situation and ask what options are available to you to stay in your home.  It may be best for you to move and look into Community Services and housing which is available for low income families through your County.  Hoping that this helps.  Good luck to you.
