uh Hi everyone!! i know this is kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.
Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.
Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.
Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.
There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.
Thank you so much.
so here’s my situation
i’m a 19 year old trans women going through her early transition. i moved out of my home because of the awful environment i got from my old conservative grandparents, and am currently living with a tumblr user i met through the trans housing network. i have bi-polar disorder and am unmedicated because i haven’t been able to afford it in years. i was laid off from my job a few weeks ago due to being a “seasonal employee”, and have been trying hard to find something ever since then.
i have $20.05 in my bank account, i’m unemployed, and currently searching for a job in the post-holiday job market.
i get two of those medical bills every month; i’m on a payment plan of $108 a month for visits that happened within the past year. i haven’t been able to pay off any of it in a very long time. these are supposed to be covered by worker’s comp, since it happened at work, but i get the bills regardless and my former employer won’t talk to me about it. i owe about $4,400 from my two visits to the emergency room.
i owe about $110 every month for my phone bill; having a phone is basically a requirement for getting a job, to answer calls for interviews, to be able to CALL people.
i owe my roommate about $310 each month for rent - this doesn’t include the cost of internet, electricity, and other utilities. i have this month off, because she does understand my situation, but i’d rather go for as little time as possible living off her generosity.
my transition pills - estradiol and spironolactone - cost me about $80 monthly at the moment, which will likely increase as my dosage gets upped. i’d also like to be able to afford bloodwork because i am self medicating at the moment, but i don’t have the $250 necessary to pay for the procedure, and i don’t qualify for medicaid in texas.
i get $16 per month from food stamps, and that is all i have in terms of food, other than what i’ve taken from my grandparents. my roommate absolutely cannot afford to feed both of us, and right now we’re subsisting off a 50 lb bag of rice i bought from costco a few months ago and $1 hamburger helper meals
i’m in a bad situation. i can’t afford to feed or house myself and until i get a job i don’t know what else to do to change this.
if you could help me it’d be amazing; i’m buried under these bills and i have no idea what i’m going to do.
i need to pay off these bills, and i need to be able to pay my roommate for the room she has allowed me to stay in. i need clothes, food, my phone… i’m really lost here.
there’s a donate button set up on my blog’s sidebar if you have anything you can spare at all. if you can’t, a reblog would be appreciated
seriously, help sev, she is Quality People and has been in an extremely bad situation lately that i really want to try and help her out of. it would mean a lot to me if you donated and/or reblogged
PLEASE REBLOG THIS, IT COULD SAVE A LIFE.

bc nobody is following me anymore i don’t think you’ll notice this, but if you’d like to have an url, just message me, i have really liked these:)
can you ask off anon? I’m rather comfortable when i know who i’m talking to :)
Oh that’s so nice to hear:( i’m sorry but i don’t think that i’ll be much on this blog anymore, it’s so nice to see how many followers i have gained in this time, but i have another personal blog and i think i will continue using the other one! Also i’ll be so occupied with school the coming weeks, so it’ll be difficult! But thank you so much:)
I don’t normally post things about my personal life unless there may be a chance that someone could help.
A year ago, my abusive father left us in a lurch. What he left behind was a series of debt in my mother’s name (identity theft) as we well as several months of unpaid rent. We were evicted from our home but was able to find another house in time.
Only this landlord has put us through a year of hell. Our landlord foreclosed on the house eight days after we signed our lease. She has tried to falsely evict us because she was behind in her Home Owners Association fees. From which the HOA demanded the rent be paid to them, in accordance to the law. But she tried to evict us for non-payment of rent. We took her to court and fortunately we won.
However, tomorrow the house is going up for auction and according to Florida law that includes tenants such as us, if the house sells or goes back to the bank, in a matter of weeks we will be given an eviction notice to vacate in 48-72 hours. We have no place else to go and we haven’t been able to find a place to rent because of the credit checks.
We live with my mother. We are full-time college students who attend Valencia College here in Orlando, Florida. We have a 12-year old, crippled, Jack Russell Terrier named Lola and a 16-year old cat named Tuki. We literally go to school and work, that is all we do. We have never been late on a rent payment. We have never caused any trouble for anyone. We have only had an extraordinary case of bad luck.
We have proof of winning the court case as well as proof of paying every month of rent on time to both the HOA (when they demanded it) and the landlord.
We are trying to find a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment or house that is within the Orlando, Kissimmee, St. Cloud area but we have had no luck so far.
If there is anyone who can offer assistance, we are desperate and need help.
- Thank you
Please, if there is anything you can do to help my friend I will be forever grateful. If not, please reblog this and get the word out.
