So sadly i come with bad news, i got monkeypox, it was not sexually transmission, i believe i got it wearing some used clothe i got donated without washing it. My symptoms nor are headache, fever, swollen lymph nodes and around 20 pox´s in my skin specially in my crotch, hands, chest and face.

It is very painful especially in crotch area and i also have throat pain. My current situation as most of you know is homeless, so it is very difficult to isolate myself. I will try to get a motel room for some days.

This happened in the worse moment of my life when i am facing a deep depression and i am disabled with chronic pain in my thumb which need and urgent surgery a physiotherapy.

I have been crowdfunding for a while to get the surgery and survive and I am hardly getting donations, i am in urgent need of funds to get a motel room, basic needs and meds.

I kindly ask you for help if you are able to or share this widely. Thanks, Reina

Hi, i am Reina a 30 years old black trans women, early last year i fall down when i was trying to escape a dangerous situation. It caused an avulsion fracture in my thumb (which means that a small piece of bone is broken away from the main bone).

I got a surgery to repair the damaged tendon (the surgeon put a fiber implant in my thumb).

Since then i have not regained mobility in my finger, it keeps me incapacitated and it is still painfully, due to my economic situation which have been precarious since a while now i have to be living in motels, shelters or homeless.

I am asking for help to be able to pay rehabilitation therapy, and cover my expenses such as housing, food and medication.

I really appreciate you can donate and share this fundraising.

Update #7

For economic reasons it has not yet been possible to do the second surgery that I need. I continue to be disabled with chronic pain in my hand and I try to live with it taking quite strong pills that relieve my pain but are not the solution and are even unhealthy. This disability that prevents me from having a normal life has me in a deep depression.

It's embarrassing but I urgently ask for your help to perform the new surgery and physiotherapy.

I know that the economic situation of many of you is not the best at this time, although mine is being so desperate as a disabled homeless person without resources to access medicines and basic needs.

Any help is very appreciate even sharing with friends and family that can contribute.

Thanks, Reina

Update #6

I wanted to make this update after a long period in which I have been in a critical situation, apparently I am developing a kind of arthritis in my thumb, for which I am going to need a new surgery to try to alleviate the chronic pain i'm going through. During these days I am going through a hard depression and I am receiving a medication that only makes me want to sleep, for which I have been away from all kinds of social media. My financial situation has been getting worse, and I find myself living in motels or on the streets when I can't afford it. That is why today I come to you, hoping that you are in a better situation and can somehow help me economically for my medical expenses and my living situation that are making my life painful and sad.

Thanks

Update #5

I am so thankfully for donations received so far. But my fundraising is losing traction and i am getting desperate. I want to attach an image again of what happened with my thumb, basically the collateral ligament broke and also a piece of the Phalanx. I got a surgery but i wasn't totally successful so i need physiotherapy to recover mobility before it's too late and may become chronically or have to get a second surgery. Please kindly consider sharing with family/friends and your social media. Thanks ❤
