Don't tell mum I need help walking!

On Monday, I broke my back snowboarding in Sapporo. I hit a jump too fast and landed directly on my T12 vertebrae and came close to being a paraplegic (don't tell mum any of this, she doesn't need to worry yet).

I need emergency surgery, but since I don't have travel insurance (why would I have travel insurance, when is anything going to happen to me?), I need to fly home to get it (It costs $40,000 to get the surgery here).

My brother is currently funding this misadventure of mine, but he's just had a baby and I don't wanna be the reason he can't pay for his first home, so I need some help from you guys, my friends and well wishers.

Any money donated will go towards paying for the flight home, I need a business class flat bed as I need to stay recumbent for as long as possible. This will cost around $5000.

Next is to pay for costs already incurred in hospital here, roughly $4000.

Any extra would go to helping me eat, the recovery time for a fusion of the bone, the surgery that I need, is between two weeks and three months. So could be a while.

If you feel like helping me out and are able to, I would be forever grateful, or if not, that's cool too, I'll probably forgive you in time, lol. Thanks in advance. Xo
