Tumblr friends. You all saved my life. Unfortunately I need help one last time to keep it that way.
You raised $3,000 for my major brain surgery in October. Well, the bill is $9,600- Medicaid covered the hospital, NOT the doctor(!!). due to financial hardship, it’s reduced to $4,500.
The problem: the doctor HAS TO adjust and monitor my new neuro implant every other week, and I WILL DIE WITHOUT THE ADJUSTMENTS. But he is NOT ALLOWED to see me more than once more unless this is paid.
The reduction has conditions: I must pay $1,000 by Dec 16, the$3,500 balance by Dec 23.
This is a terrible blow to me, I can’t stop crying in sheer frustration.
So, sadly, I must ask for help one least time (I can get on Free Care in April). You’ve all already been so generous. The SPNFamily, and Tumblr at large has been amazing. And if there were any way to avoid asking, I would.
PLEASE DONATE IF YOU CAN! I’ve set up a PayPal with the email firstname.lastname@example.org to accept funds (if you “send to a friend” there’s no fee). The hospital can only accept payment from me.
I know the Holidays are already an expensive time. Maybe give someone the gift of saving a life in their name? And I know I recently got so much help from you all. If I had any way to avoid this I would. And of course I’m happy to repay with fics, songs, editing, or anything I can.
As it is I’m also homeless and sometimes staying with my violent abusive parents, other times staying with friends. Every cent I get is going to other medical expenses and necessities.
PLEASE SHARE THIS as far and wide as you can! Whether or not you can give, others may be able to.
Thank you all so so much. Below are some photos just to show what I mean. They called me with the settlement, but the original bill is there, as well as a few of my scars.
Thank you again! PLEASE DONATE AND SHARE IF YOU CAN, and ask me any questions.
Sopranish is my friend, and I’ve personally witnessed the reality of her struggles, so I can vouch for both the urgency and the legitimacy of this plea for help. She is on a time crunch and really scared, so any shares or donations would be so,so appreciated. Every little thing helps!!

WARNING for a link in the petition (not shown in the petition itself) that shows graphic hospital pictures and videos, and describes instances of rape, nonconsented incarceration to a mental institution for the survivor, nonconsented and malpracticed surgeries, abuse, the VA gaslighting her, refusing to treat her because of their claims that she had PTSD, and refusing to take any responsibility.
The petition is to make the government recognize her surgical and disability needs and take responsibility for them allowing this to happen in the first place.
She has evidence in pictures and videos of her scars and tubing, and she needs urgent assistance. This is sadly not hard to believe at all, as horror stories like this are rather common in the military.
WARNING for graphic pictures: Here’s her gofundme page as well, if you’re willing and able.
