Help me save my liver

I'm Miguel Rivas, 25 years old, from Venezuela and I recently moved to the US. I'm currently living alone and away from my family, to which I try to provide, and I had the bad luck to get sick. I came  to Dr. Philips hospital in Orlando, Florida with severe abdominal pain, fever and yellowish skin and eyes... turns out, I had stones in my gallbladder which clogged the biliar ducts and produced a severe infection that ascended to my liver. The doctors put a couple of drains in my abdomen to help release the liver and gallbladder infection; since then I have been waiting for the liver to get in better shape so I can have my gallblader removed. Not having the surgery could cause another infection or gallbladder rupture, leading to a permanent liver damage. This money will help me paying the medical bills, resulting from my situation, at the same time it can help me stablishing myself with the right foot in America. The funds would be withdrawn by me and I'll deliver a check personally to the hospital posting a picture so you can see all the people that have helped me so much during this process!
