My name is Kassia and I have Lupus. On December 21st, 2012 I had a big attack on my nerves and I lost all the hearing in my left ear and a lot of the hearing in my right ear. After going through months of chemo and steadily getting better, I am finally feeling well enough to revisit the issue of my hearing.
I have a hard time hearing people who are even standing right in front of me. I’m sure my roommates go crazy with how loud I have to have the volume when I watch tv. I can barely hold conversations on the phone. And the funniest part is sometimes I hear the complete wrong thing.

The thing is, hearing aids would definitely help me out but our insurance doesn’t cover them and they’re… Expensive to say the least.

I thought I could try this and see how it goes.

Hey dolls! So we’re getting close to wrapping up chapter 4, and that means the first collective volume of Dollhouse will be ready to print, as in chapters 1-4 in one book! Unfortunately, I can’t fund this book getting printed out of pocket like I’ve been able to with the previous single-chapter issues. This volume will be a much larger run (like ten times larger), so I’m launching a Kickstarter to raise the funds to get this book printed!
As a backer, your money would go towards getting the book printed in paperback and make DRM-free PDFs available for digital devices, as well as some sweet Kickstarter exclusive rewards!
And as always, thanks for reading. Writing and drawing these last four chapters has been an incredible experience for me, and it’s been equally incredible seeing how the fanbase has grown over the past year and a half. Every comment, like, reblog, or retweet makes my heart light up. I hope you all want to see this book printed as much as I do!
Check out the Kickstarter here, and follow me on Twitter for more updates involving the campaign!!

Ray drew the artwork of WV on the CTSTL header image, banners, backpacks, and much more! She’s been part of the Can Town St. Louis family from the very beginning. Please support her Kickstarter to see her work in print! (Be aware that the comic itself contains mature content, and is not intended for anyone under 18.)

This is how me and my family are living these months.

My mom has a great job but doesn’t make enough to support all five of us. She’s working extra hours but it isn’t enough and with school starting for my brothers and them needing over priced uniforms, we’ve all reached the end of our rope.

On top of this, my mom also has diabetes and sometimes has trouble getting the money for her medication. And as people who have/are dealing with this kind of disease you know that everything is so much more harder for her. When she gets a paper cut it can last a month and when she gets caught in the rain, she is guaranteed to get sick and as she says so many times “[she] cannot afford to get sick”.

Right now we are trying to move from this house into a smaller, more affordable one but the chances of that happening anytime soon are dwindling. In addition to this, my mom wants to visit our sick grandfather in New York who has multiple myeloma. If anyone who has heard of this would know that it affects your organs and there is no cure for it. We are all hoping for one last visit before he passes on.

I’m asking that you please help us. I don’t like this life for my brothers who have to wonder if it was okay that they are ramen for breakfast or that my mother can’t see her father one last time. Anything and everything you donate will be used to help my brothers and mother have an easier more enjoyable life.

I have set up a fundraiser and a paypal on my blog. Again, anything and everything you can spare will be much appreciated and if you cannot donate, please share this so that it gets around.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS PLEASE

Hey guys. I know there are a lot of dog lovers on tumblr so I wanted to try this. It’s not for me, it’s for my sister and her family.

Yesterday (June 10) my sisters dog was hit by a car and left in the street. He went to the emergency vet and got a bunch of stitches, but he still has a broken tarsus and needs a specialist to get it fixed (3rd pic, his back left leg).

The surgery will be about $3500-4000 and my sister will have a very hard time affording that.

I started a donation site for Kato’s surgery.

http://www.gofundme.com/a7pchw

Please donate if you can, the smallest bit helps! If you can’t donate please reblog this and spread the word!

GUYS WE JUST FOUND OUT KATO NEEDS HIS LEG AMPUTATED

please please donate if you can and please reblog this

Kato’s amputation surgery is scheduled for Monday

We’re still a long way away from what my sister needs for the surgery. I’m trying to do this for her so she doesn’t have to rely on credit to save her pup. 

Baby Marley and her favorite pup Kato

Every dollar helps. Every share helps. This has gotten more notes than I ever thought and I really, really appreciate it. Thank you for being wonderful, Tumblr.
