I can’t believe I’m doing this, but I’m pretty desperate.
That picture is me. I am not pregnant. That is my tumor.
It’s benign, but only in that it’s not going to kill me. In many other ways it’s very malignant. The least of my problems being that it’s gotten to the point where I have to ask for help tying my shoes and ended up buying slip on shoes so I didn’t have to ask for help. I’m tired all the time to the point where I will literally sleep fifteen hours a day if I can. My immune system is in the toilet and my medical bills are through the roof.
I’ve known, medically, about this tumor since August of 2011 when I finally saw a doctor about my oddly protruding abdomen, but I have been dealing with this this since early 2010. It’s just getting worse and worse.
So, I’m asking for donations. I already have over a thousand dollars in bills I can’t pay and I still don’t know how much the surgery to have it removed is going to cost. I do know I’m going to have to spend 2-3 days in the hospital and that will probably cost twice whatever the surgery is, if not more. I’d really appreciate it if I could get some help.
If you’re willing to help please send donations to my PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org
Even two dollars will help. And if you can’t afford even that much then do me a favor and pass this on. Reblog, tweet about, it whatever is applicable. Every little bit helps.

Holy shit, man. I am flat-ass broke with debts of my own, but I can at least reblog. Minus the angry rant about what kind of country lets its citizens live like this.
