Help if  You Can



If you know me or have been following me for a long time, you know I have been struggling with my health and finances the last few years. I hate more than anything having to ask other people for help or money.

Just over a month ago I had to undergo an emergency procedure to have several fibroids removed. A couple of them were cancerous but most were benign. I had a follow up and learned the fibroids are already coming back. My doctor did a pap test and found cancerous cells, that combined with the rate of growth on the fibroids is very concerning. I need to have a complete hysterectomy.

Also, while getting examined for the fibroid issue, a mass was found in my left breast. A mammogram was ordered and it showed irregularities. I have an ultrasound scheduled for today to further examine the mass and likely a biopsy will be scheduled soon. The discovery of the mass has caused even more concern for my doctor.

Problem is I have no health insurance and no savings due to long legal battles involving custody of my 12 year old daughter with my ex. I need to get healthy so I can be there for my daughter. She needs her mom and the relationship she has with her father isn’t the greatest.

After being laid off from a full time job last year, I have only been able to find part time employment. In fact, I had to give up one part time job because the fibroids make me unable to do the lifting necessary to do the work. No full time job, no insurance and because I work part time, no paid sick leave.

I’ve done some research and found some insurance that can get me through. However, with my income I am unable to afford it at this time. To obtain insurance, pay the deductible, pay for the tests I’ve already had, and to help compensate for missed work I need to raise roughly $2500.

I have been selling everything I can on Ebay to help raise the money and working hard to find a full time job or a second part time job to help absorb the financial stress. Here is a link to my Ebay page: https://www.ebay.com/sch/irishshieldmaiden/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=   More items will be listed soon.

I don’t have much family left and those that are around have done what they can. My mother is 80 yrs old and in need of care herself so my two siblings (rightly so) are focusing on her. My extended family doesn’t want to help because they are convinced that this is God’s way of punishing me for being bisexual.

So, with reluctance I have started a fundraising page on youcaring. Here is the link if you would like to help: https://www.youcaring.com/sonjamichaelastjohn-868605?utm_source=twitter

I realize some people don’t trust fundraising sites. If you would like to donate but would rather use paypal, that would work too. My email is trekgirl55@yahoo.com

I’m a single mom with a young daughter and very little support system. I need help. Please know you don’t have to donate and I understand there are so many people that have it worse than I but please share this and spread the word to those who can.


Hey guys. So. My aunt is pretty sick. She needs surgery, has no health insurance, a part time job, and a 12 year old daughter to care for. I’m really worried about her, about them, and am not sure what to do.

You can read my aunt’s story above, but also know that she is the kindest, most devoted mother and aunt you could ask for. She’s been there for me every time I needed her, and honestly, probably kept me from doing some stupid ass shit when I was in college. She’s brilliant, she’s talented, she’s compassionate, she’s a huge nerd. She’s one of the most important people in my life, and her daughter is so precious to me.

I know it’s pretty arrogant to be like “PAY ME FOR THIS FREE THING,” but unlike Xena, I do not have many skills. I can write, and that’s about it. So I’m “selling” my fic skills.

I’ll write just about damn near anything you want (no rape fantasy or incest plz), make you graphics, record a song for you. I’m working on getting my Society6 page up and running, and will reblog with that link soon.

I’m a recent grad with no money and very little talent but I write poems and fic and I’m hoping that will help.

How it works:

Basically, you email me the receipt from your donation (either to her PayPal or YouCaring), and within two weeks you get your fic.

Fandoms: these are the ones I’m familiar with, but i’ll do anything

TV: Doctor Who, Mattex, Once Upon a Time, Alex Kingston’s Filmography (Hope Springs, Marchlands, Like Crazy, Chasing Shadows, etc etc), Leverage, Shakespeare (Macbeth), The Pretender, Firefly, Supergirl, Star Trek: Voyager, The West Wing, House, Farscape, Stargate: Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, Harlots, Brooklyn 99, Xena, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, ER, etc

Film: Wonder Woman (2017), Moulin Rouge, The Last Unicorn, anything, just talk to me.

$1,000+ - whatever the fuck you want

You can request literally anything - want me to finish that thing I abandoned? You got it. Want a crossover with two obscure fandoms? Yours. Want a pairing I don’t usually write? Now’s the time.

I know it’s a lot to ask. So many people are in the same boat I am, and my aunt is. But if you have even $5, I want to give something back to you.

And you want something that isn’t fic, like just graphics or gifs, want me to sing you a song, write a poem, whatever, let me know.

If you can’t donate, please please reblog. Maybe there’s someone out there with $10 who really wants Mal Reynolds trying to ride a unicorn, you never know.

Thank you.


Catherine (or Kaz)
