This is my friend Chris, a picture taken a few months ago, in my bedroom one day when he came over to hang out with me. I have known him since 8th grade, when I was 14 years old. I am 21 now, and he is one of my closest friends. He is a loving, extremely friendly, funny, and great person.
The second picture is one I took today when I went to see him, with permission from his parents. It was taken in an ICU about an hour and a half away from where we live.
Last week, he was in a terrible accident. He was driving his truck and hit a blind curve, swerved and flipped over a few times, before being flung out of the truck and it landed on top of him. He has 17 bone fractures, a bruised liver, and two collapsed lungs. He is in so much pain he is on Fentanyl, an opiate more powerful than morphine, and anesthetics. He is also on a ventilator currently. It is predicted he will be in the hospital up to or over a month and then have a long recovery time. He is expected to live.
The problem is, his family is unable to afford the hospital bill, as neither him or them have medical insurance. They do not have very much money and this could drain them financially after something already so tragic. It could affect his schooling- Chris wants to be a nurse, and he may not be able to return to school due to lack of funds.
Chris has always been there for me. He has driven me to doctor’s appointments and emergency rooms when I was in so much pain I could barely walk because of my chronic diseases. He has done so much for me, and I want to help him. I want him to know I will always be there for him like he has been there for me, in any way possible.
I am currently accepting donations for his family and him to help pay the hospital bills. They will go to my PayPal account, be directed to my bank account, and then given directly to his family. This is not a scam. This is not a hoax. You can look at my Tumblr and read my previous entries, you can ask people who know me who can vouch for my honesty.
I just want to help my friend.
If you can donate, please send any donations to email@example.com through PayPal. You can choose to send it as payment and I take the exchange fee, or you can send it as a gift and pay the exchange fee yourself. It is up to you. Even a dollar will help.
If you do not have PayPal but wish to donate a larger amount of money, message me for my address and I will give it. Unfortunately, I can not give out my address for small amounts of money because, as understood, I don’t really want my address going out to every one on the internet. If I get enough interest, however, I might set up a P.O. Box for small exchanges of money.
Even if you can’t donate, please reblog and help me get the message out. It would be greatly appreciated by me, his friends, his family, and every one that loves him. I know this probably won’t get very many notes, because I am not really Tumblr famous, but please, please, help in any way you are able to.
Thank you for reading this, and thank you for any donations. My heart appreciates it more than I could ever explain.
