Please help me pay for my new lip

$2,205 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 75 people in 20 months
Today I cut it a little too close to a tree while skiing. The surgery to remove the stick will easily cost me over a thousand dollars. My deductible is 1250. This was totally unplanned and sucks so if y'all would be so kind as to chip in for my medical expenses that would be sooo cool. Guess I should reconsider the lip piercing trend.

Howdy y'all, thanks to all who donated for the amazing outpouring of love and support. I am amazed to have met and exceeded my goal within less than a week. I am nearly fully recovered, and back out on the slopes.
I wanted to make it clear that at this point, the money raised should more than cover my medial bills. Any additional funds that I raise will go towards the development of the youth centered outdoor environmental education program I am founding this summer in Colorado.
I feel so blessed to be able to live the life I do here in the mountains, inspiring the next generation of leaders and adventurers.
Thanks again and say hi if you see me on the slopes rocking my pussy hat!!

Personally, I think the bigger problem with America is that it costs $1000 to pull a stick out of someone's face.

This guy says he has insurance but still needs to beg for money (because Obamacare)...yet he has a facebook profile full of crap about "resisting" our elected President, Donald J. Trump, who, ironically is trying to make healthcare affordable again. This dude is an idiot in more ways than one.

Hey dipshit. Pay for your own fuck-ups. We have all had them, including me for doing stupid shit ranging from dirt bike catastrophes to skipping down granite rocks only to pogostick onto my face. My fault. My mistake. I paid for it. You should too. Quit asking for handouts.

Of course it was unplanned. That's in the definition of "accident." Perhaps you should have done as the rest of us have to do, and forgo unnecessary expenditures in order to pay for the unexpected. It's not that you "can't afford" this expense, it's just that you want to spend your money on other things. It used to be shameful to beg for money. Now, it's the norm. Sad.

Nobody here can judge you especially if they can't understand not having $1500 just lying around for a rainy day. You can save your money for ski gear because that's what you love to do and still not have a deep savings account. Lay off, people. If you're not gonna help gtfo.

Hey Nathaniel- This is crazy. My name is Luke and I work at a news station in Spokane, where I think you're from. Wondering if you'd be at all able to speak with us today about what happened, because it's just so crazy. These pictures are incredible. Let me know, and glad you reached your GoFundMe goal! News station number is 509-448-4656. Thanks!

What are all these "holier than thou" jackasses doing on a gofundme site? Obviously any trolls who write asinine comments like "Pay for your own f%ckups" aren't here to do anything positive. Go home. If you need to stoke your false sense of superiority, just shut your yapper, stay offline and play solitaire set to "easy".
