Help A Gal Out

UPDATE: It looks like I managed to raise a little over $1000! I was aiming for $2000 but my dentist was amazing and gave me a pretty good deal, which made things a lot easier to manage. I want to thank you all SO much for your incredible support, it absolutely means the world to me. I’ll be making a list of everyone who donated and I’ll be in touch with you shortly to ask what print you’d like and such. Anyone getting a postcard will just a misc. one picked out and sent along and the person who scored the Batgirl original, again, I’ll be in touch with you soon. <333333333333 Lately the saying "When it rains, it pours..." feels far too applicable to my life. Bad things come in numbers. Travel woes, illness and money woes. A few weeks ago, my cat was really sick and had to be taken to the vet. I'm Canadian and most of the time I don't know what it must be like to pay medical bills. The thing that comes closest for me is when I have to pay pet medical bills, which are ridiculous. But my cat is my fur baby and you got to take care of your own. Now I'm having a few more problems. Affording medication, buying prescription diet for my cat ($60/month at least), trying to get myself a new pair of glasses ($200-$500) because I've gotten much blinder recently and having to pay hefty dentist bills. Unfortunately dentistry isn't covered by health care in Canada and I have two remaining wisdom teeth that are causing me daily migraines (that cost at least $200 per tooth to remove plus the $200 for x-rays and consultations) and lots of epic pain in my mouth. Additionally, I also have some cavities that need to be fixed up before they get worse and the bottom line is that they all cost money. Lots of it. I'm working on finding a long term solution to, you know, money stuff but right now everything has piled up at once and I can't afford it all on my own. Due to some stupid life decisions I made when I was younger (that I'm paying for now but working on fixing) I also can't get credit cards or loans and thus why I can't just do this all the good ol' fashioned way (aka wracking up debt). So I'm here to ask for your help. I don't want to just beg for stuff so I'd like to offer some incentives for you if you choose to help me out. A bit like medical Kickstarter but run here and through my PayPal (donation button at the bottom of the page) with a goal of $2000 in mind. Here are some of the rewards (all with shipping and additional cost stuff in mind): $5-$20:
I will send you a handwritten postcard where I babble, doodle and thank you for your help and support.

I will send you a print of your choosing. You can select either a Missfits print by Hanie Mohd, a Talking Comics print by Hanie Mohd, a Stephanie Cooke LUNGE print by Boy Akkerman (artist on Captain Ultimate) OR a print of any of my photos (choose from here).
