Guess which uninsured charity worker owes thousands of dollars to three different hospitals. Yep, it's me.

I am LLK, and I am a charity worker. I have given so much of my time and money to those who need it, and now I have no choice but to pray for some kindness in return. If you want a starving artist, here I am. I work odd jobs here and there, and I try to do some freelance stuff, but for the most part I don't have a lot of extra cash laying around. Usually, I make art for free for charity groups, particularly The Speed Gamers group. You can see one of my videos for them here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nj5eqYLWtv8

Anyway, I do what I can, but recently I was annihilated by medical bills. During one charity event, I ended up with some horrific gall stones and had to have my gall bladder removed. You would think it would end there, but a few weeks ago I had stones in my liver duct. The procedure to remove them (an ERCP) was routine and non-invasive, but there was a 1 in 6 chance that it could give me pancreatitis. And guess who the lucky winner was. The pancreatitis meant another week in the hospital. So now I have three different hospitals demanding money. Not to mention the ER doctors, the ambulance drivers, and the gastroenterologist. I already paid the surgeon and the lab techs, but that hardly scratches the surface here. I have no insurance, and I don't know what else to do. I know this isn't Kickstarter, but I would like to reward people for their kindness anyway. For every $50 you donate, I will draw something cute for you. I know it isn't much, but it's all I can do right now. Thank you for your time and your generosity.
