Help me complete my schooling for game design

Welcome, My name is Jesse. my story starts back in April 2020. this is when I started my new path into my passion for Video games and entertainment. I was accepted into the Toronto Film School for Game design and Animation. this was a dream come true. however unfortunately the Government was not able to cover the complete cost of my Education. not a worry, I planned on working part time while completing my studies. jump to the end of June 2020. I suffered a pancreatic attack causing myself to be hospitalized for 3 and a half weeks. I then learned I have type two diabetes along with some other complications. The doctors have now explained that I must change my lifestyle to become a healthier person or I may not survive another episode. as you can imagine this has caused several issue with finding the time to continue my studies and also work enough hours to cover housing, food, medication, and tuition. not to mention finding the time to truly take care of myself. 
now this is not something I'm to proud of but I'm looking for help to pay off my tuition so i may focus on my health and studies. I truly feel I have what it takes to become one of the next great designers. 
My total tuition is 37,500$. 

Please take a look at my Art Station account to decide for yourself. 

Thank you for listening to my sob story. and every little bit helps. I truly appreciate even taking the time to read this.

Thank you again
