Help Alex Get Back on His Feet from Medical Debt
Organized by: Alexei Shira
Hey friends-- I need your help! I recently had to have surgery which I had to finance with a medical credit card since insurance wouldn't cover it. I'm in a lot of debt, I have bills piling up, debt collectors harassing me, and I'm not going to be able to return to work as soon as I thought I was due to the surgery. That being said, I'm really in a jam here, and once I return to my job, I still have this massive credit card bill to pay. Right now my bank account is overdrawn, I have literally not a dime to my name, and I cannot pick up any odd jobs because I have too many stitches.
I'm running out of essentials and just feeling trapped in debt. I am employed but as I am disabled (I have dystonia), I can no longer work long hours or two jobs (even though I want to). There was once a time where I could always supplement my income with picking up side work like landscaping or painting, but this is no longer an option. I developed dystonia 5 years ago and since then, keep my head above water has been grueling, but usually possible. Recent unforeseen hardships wiped out my tiny savings, and now I don't know what else to do.
Any donations will be used for: food, medication, transportation to medical appointments, bills & fixing bank account, and taking care of my sick dog. Thank you <3 My love and gratitude cannot be expressed in words alone. <3
