Tifa's Recovery and Survival Fund

Hello! I'm Tifa Tittlywinks.  I am a full time burlesque performer, artist, producer, and teacher in Houston, TX.  

On Friday April, 15th 2016, I was the passenger in a debilitating motorcycle accident. The driver of the bike t-boned a Silverado at approximately 45 miles per hour. There is a lot of bad news, so I'll start with the good. I'm alive!! That's about the extent of the good. The bad news is that I've completely separated my right clavicle from my shoulder (2 months recovery if I'm lucky, 9 months if not), cracked my right scapula, and broke my left hand (Update! Surgery went well and I now have pins in my hand). 

What does this all mean? Well, typing is a huge challenge, I can't feed myself, I have the ugliest road rash down my left side, extensive wounds on my legs and face that keep surfacing, and the list goes on... But most importantly, I can't work. I am a full time atist.  Without the ability to dance, produce, or teach, I have absolutely no income.  I won't be performing until the end of May at the latest. I'll be lucky if I can perform in June but I will have very limited abilities for at least 6 months. 

I've set up this GoFundMe because the driver and cause of the collision is uninsured.  More so, I do not have medical insurance to cover this situation.  My medical, legal, and living costs are racking up quickly and I can't keep up. Everything raised here will go to medical expenses first.  The target amount is an estimate and only 60% of my forecasted expenses.  Much of the expenses had to be paid up front, putting me and my folks in a terrible bind.  The sooner we can meet our goal, the sooner our lives can return to normal.  

I am incredibly independent and self sufficient.  For the next two months (minimum), I won't be able to eat without help (among all other activities requiring an arm or hand).  This money will insure that I receive the proper care and medical threatment to get me back in business!  I am be eternally grateful and humbled by your support. The faster I mend, the faster I can get back to creating and curating top notch entertainment!!

No donation is too small.  I have a wonderful support group to help me with day to day tasks, which means what I need most is monetary assistance.  I am relying on you and your support to get me through this tough time. But have no fear! I have rewards a plenty for your support, made possible by Penland Pinups and Copydotcom.

Thank you in advance for your support. You've made it this far, now you just gotta drop a lil moolah ;)
