G.I.S.T. For Medical Bills
My name is Terry Byrd. I portray a creepy horror host named Riggor Mortiss. In mid-2014, I was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor called a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (G.I.S.T.). This thing was as big as my head. I underwent surgery to have it removed, to no avail. It had attached itself to various organs and blood vessels. It was literally bleeding me dry.... feeding on my blood. I had a cess drainage hose and ostomy bag attached to me for a year and a half. Regular C.T. scans, labs and check up visits have caused bills to add up. Several thousands of dollars later, I'm unable to get them all paid, and collectors are calling for payment. I've tried to do a second job, but my energy level has dropped off from what it was. I'm the only one in the household that works. I work overtime at my current job when needed or when I can, but this tumor seems to have left me quite weak and vulnerable. Any "horror host" like Nyte Angel and I can tell you...we don't get any money from hosting, especially if they manage themselves and do all the things necessary to bring you our show. I am also on an expensive chemo drug called Gleevec, which insurance (thank goodness) is paying for.
I REALLY need some help. ANYTHING you do will be greatly appreciated.
FEEL FREE TO SHARE! THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE!
Here's hoping that they find NOTHING there.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. Nyte and I have the most AWESOME fanbase and friends!
I figure all of you who are donating should see who I really am. Riggor Mortiss is an extension of myself. Riggor is my creepy side full blown! In our opinion (Nyte Angel and myself), there are two types of Horror.... One is sheer EVIL personified, and the other is cobwebs, creaky doors, coffins and creepy haunted houses...the latter is the category we fit. Small children are infatuated and entertained as well as adults, and we make sure each of our episodes are suitable for viewing for our children and grandchildren. We must keep this tradition alive. We will return to shooting episodes as soon as we can. In the meanwhile, enjoy what we've done, but we may surprise you in the future! Thank you all for getting this ol' Monster inspired to creep at it once again! We love you all!
