I have a friend who lives in an abusive situation. Their mother is a drug addict, their father doesn’t care, their neighbors aren’t quite sane, they have a stalker who has sexually harassed them in the past, and the local police cannot be counted on for anything. Not only can they not escape their situation, but they have just found out that they need a spinal tap to drain excess fluid in their brain caused by a pseudo brain tumor. They are unemployed and have little to no means of making even a fraction of enough money to pay for this, thanks to living in the medically-backwards United States of America.
The surgery has not yet taken place, so there is no bill for me to post a picture of. I do not know how much this is going to cost, but all money donated will go to them. I hope there will be money leftover so they can leave their abusive situation and start anew elsewhere.
I know it seems sketchy leaving my own paypal, but they don’t feel comfortable providing their own, nor asking from charity. Regardless, please leave a few kind words and well-wishes so that I may pass them on.
Please help. They are a good friend and I don’t want to lose them to this.
When the surgery does take place, I will update this post with an image of the bill total, if I can finagle it out of them.
