Help me repay my medical debt, and help me help others!

A little over two years ago, I was hospitalized with a fluke heart episode called atrial flutter. Basically, the atrium of my heart were contracting at about 300 bpm while the ventricles were beating at 170 bpm. This condition usually occurs in unhealthy adults in their 50s, but I was only 20 at the time, and was and still am active. Thankfully I had insurance at the time, but the hospital bill was still quite expensive. The bills have been paid off, but not by me. My mother paid the bills, and I promised her I will pay her back, even though she tells me that it is not necessary.

This donation page is meant more for her than it is for me, because she is struggling and I feel guilty that she had to pay such a big chunk of money for me. This would be the greatest birthday gift I could give her. She has done so much for me, and I would like to return the favor to her.

I understand that there are other much more deserving causes on this website, and I agree 100%. But I promise that after the 7% GiveForward takes from the proceeds, I will give 2% to three other fundraisers on this site (6% total). Like I said, I am not here for me. Those three fundraisers will be:
1) Running for Faith
2) Fight Richie's Cancer
3) Natalie's Stage IV Lung Cancer

All of these causes end after mine will, so it will ensure they are still open for me to donate after mine ends. The name I will display on the donations will be "Help Me Help Others", so you can see for yourself my word is good.

By the way I am a full time college student, so it is very tough for me to pay my mother back in a timely manner while I am in school and only working part time.

I appreciate everybody for even reading this. Thank you.
