Single Uninsured Man Needs Help With Hospital Bill

My Story:

In my household it just me and my two kitties. I recently moved to Fort Myers Florida a few months ago to make a fresh start after loosing my mother. I moved from Grand Rapids Michigan. My hobbies are scuba diving and bowling when I am not working.

Back in June I started to get strep throat. I usually get strep throat about once a year. This is the first time that I have never had health insurance. Normally I would go see my doctor and I would get an antibiotic. Well this time I had to go to the hospital and get a 5oz abscess drained from my throat. I was able to get a little help from the hospital but its not enough. I was told I have 3 months to pay the bill in full or it would go into collections. I live paycheck to paycheck. Between monthly bills, car loan, insurance, and buying groceries I do not know how to pay this hospital bill. I need your help.

This bill needs to be paid by September 23rd. If I do not get this paid I will be forced to forego my rent or food. If I am evicted I will have nowhere else to go. With your help I will have the chance to get ahead, start a savings, find a new career (with health insurance). I believe that in this world you have to give to receive and I would like the chance to help someone else out as well. Thank you so much.
