Help Kevin's Heart (Medical Bills)

Hello friends, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, and am unsure as whether I even should. Those of you who know me personally know that I rarely share very much personal information, and you know that it's even harder for me to ask for help. It seems at this point I have no other alternative though. Earlier this month, in a desperate and sad moment, I tried to take my own life. As a result I was rushed to the emergency room where I was diagnosed with a rare heart disease known as Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. This syndrome makes my heart beat irregularly, and too fast, which in turn has crippling effects on my body. From feeling faint and light headed, all the way to losing motor skills in my hands. As an artist and musician, the toll on my hands are what is really killing me. My insurance situation has been up in the air for a long while and now I will be responsible for emergency room fees, as well as fees for seeing a cardiologist and all of the tests that will be (and have been) done on me so far. The prospect of having surgery is one that I am very much dreading, but it is the financial burden that I'm not sure I can handle alone. I truly hate to be this vulnerable but I have run out of options. Please, if you can buy some of my artwork that would mean the world to me, but if art isn't your thing then any donation would be something I would be eternally grateful for. I know I may not be the most deserving of charity, surely there are people worse off than me, but absolutely anything would help me at this point. I hope from the bottom of my heart that I can beat this, and if you have no dollar to spare I could always use some words of encouragement. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and may the Earth bless you for your kindness.
