I Broke My Wrist & Can't Afford the Medical Bills on My Own. Please Help!

My Story:

I currently live by myself in Boston and have always been able to pay my own way. However, I tend to live paycheck to paycheck, and I don't really have much set aside to deal with unexpected expenses. Recently, I broke my wrist and required surgery from a specialist to have it fixed.

Even though I have insurance, between my deductible and coinsurance, I was hit with over $2,500 worth of medical bills. On top of my student loans and the high cost of living in the city, this has been a huge source of stress in my life, and soon it will be even worse than just stress if these bills go to collections. I'm only 24, and if these bills destroy my credit, it could ruin my financial future. I don't have any way of taking care of these bills, my student loans, and my rent without a little bit of help. That's why I'm asking humbly for help with my medical bills.

I've already made plans to get a second job to help off set all of the costs, but this help would go a long way towards making sure I can pay these bills off on time. It would also save my financial future and keep me headed down the right path. I'm working on building an emergency fund to the best of my ability so that something like this doesn't happen again. This help would be a huge boost to my foundation going forward, and for that, I couldn't be more thankful.
