Brian's Bionic Collar Bone

Hi my Friends!!
It's not my usual "exciting, thilling adventure" story. I flipped over my handlebars and broke my collarbone.  Not even doing my usual trail was on a sidewalk.  NOTHING fancy.  Embarrassing. HOWEVER, due to my insurancve premium skyrocketing to $400.00 a month, I had to let it go...I'm learning that more and more people had to do the same and let go of insurance.

SOOOO I am not convinced that the current "boasting" of "nearly every American has insurance under the Affordable Care Act" is truthful....Mine was not affordable.
I cannot find a hospital that is willing to accept payments. My surgery is estimated $12-13,000.00.

I need this surgery STAT (did you see the photo?  LOL)

That's $20.00 from 600 friends...not even sure I have 600 friends LOL  Forward to people you know that may help a stranger, if you so desire!

I love you all, even if money is tight and you cannot contribute (hell, even if you don't want to contribute for your own reasons, I still love you !)

If you can, please donate what you can. If you can't, I'll keep you posted on the progress and see you soon!

Love always,
