Help me score TMNT #1 first print!

Campaign created 44 months ago
Last May, 2013, I found out I have a brain tumor. In the year just prior to that, I started collecting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics. Its always been a dream to own all first prints of the original series from Mirage. A few months after learning it would be likely that I will spend the rest of my life broke and dealing with this tumor, I was given the opportunity to buy a copy of TMNT #1 first print. Needless to say, I had to turn the fella down on his offer due to a complete lack of funds for that kind of thing. I've seen other stories on here for big wishes and buying items of fancy... And with failing at raising funds for the tumor and medical bills on their own, I figured why not ask for money for this comic. My goal would be to raise the funds for this book, pay the gentleman for it and then have it autographed by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird and send it off for slabbing. Thanks for your time!

This is not likely to ever happen, but I'm updating so it stays out there... What's life without a little hope right? Lol

The copy I had been looking at was sold... which is fine since there were zero donations here ever...

Lost my job at the start of this month. Found out by way of the notice from COBRA that I received last week. Emailed work and they confirmed that they had decided to let me go over two weeks ago even though I have a brain tumor. I have insurance through the end of the month and then that's all. No good news, I guess. Still no help on this front. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Nothing new to update. Trying still to get disability but so far, not good.

Still selling (of trying) comics from my collection to help get money for my meds.

Joined a FB group to discuss symptoms of the tumor and find out things to do and not to do because of it.

I guess that is all.
