Help Lee & Mal Relocate
But I need a place to live. I have just been ordered to vacate my apartment by August the 9th. If I can raise about $3,600 by then, I will be safe. I can guarantee $1,100 right now, with more possible, but nothing certain. If you can help, time is of the esscence.
Hello. My name is Lee Garvin, by trade and ambition, I am a game designer and author. Twice in the last three years, I have had serious health crisises. In November of 2013, I fell ill with a life-threatening case of pneumonia, spending 10 days in a coma, and 2 months in the hospital or rehab. Then, this winter, I was hit by an infection on my defibrilator implant, sending me to the hospital with a 103 degree fever, where I stayed for 6 weeks.I owe my life several times over to the skills and technology of the INOVA Hospital system, but unfortunately, they expect and deserve to be paid for their services. I currently have no reliable source of income and no savings, but I still need to pay rent, utilities, and buy food, in addition to the mounting medical debt.
I am home now, but not at my strongest. I have managed to discard the cane that I was using for 18 months (which I was afraid I'd need for the rest of my life), but endurance is hard to come by.
My dog, Mal, is convinced that anyone who comes to the door is going to take me away again, so he tends to get very protective (he loves his daddy).
It feels strange to ask strangers for so much help, but I really don't know what else I can do, except thank you most heartily for your generosity.
To put further pressure on my situation, in six days, I will not have anywhere to live. I have exhausted all of my friends, and they want to help, but for one reason or another, they are unable.
We are staying with friends for a few days, but are still in need of a more long-term (3 to 4 month) solution.
What's the story, Lee? Any good news?
Thank you for your website in the last update, I've been dying to check out the original floating vagabond while waiting for the remake and now I can throw money directly at you too, two birds with one stone!
Hey! I get paid Friday so I'll send some money then. Please hang in there! Tales from the Floating Vagabond got me through so many dark times! It like legitimately pulled me out of suicidal depression a couple of times, and I'm just now getting to share it with my boyfriend (the love of my life) and his friend. They're making me convert it to interface with Pathfinder, but it really is that FVB vibe that is important! I really hope you can get as much better from the love and support of your fans as reading your books made me! Thanks! ♥ ♥ ♥
Hugs for you, man. I'll keep boosting the signal for as long as ya need it. :)
