    Hey folks:

    From this thread, you know the deal.

    http://www.sexualforums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=18728

    Bella had a life-threatening emergency, is on meds that are $200 per pill :eek, and it's causing a financial hardship (as in she may not be able to afford the follow-up visits, which could lead to her being back in the hospital...dig?). As caring human beings, we need to pitch in. She's an adored and respected member of our freaky little community here...and you know what they say about birds of a feather right? (No, not the whole chicken! Wrong joke!)

    I'm going to take a up collection for Bella via my PayPal.com account, cut her a check and send it to her to help. I want to make the cutoff short so we can get whatever funds to her quickly, so I'm setting the cutoff for a donation as midnight tommorrow night, Thursday August 21, 2008. Contribute whatever you comfortably can, whether it's $5 or $50 (or $500)...it's your choice. Here's what to do:

    1) Go to www.paypal.com and sign-up for a free account.

    2) Then click on "Send money"...you can use a VISA debit card or credit card. (Please DO NOT use E-check or bank draft...it will take 5-7 days to verify your account, then 3-5 days to clear the funds, and I want to get this turned around quickly.)

    3) In the title, please put "Donation for Bella" so I'll know the purpose.

    Note: You will need my email address to send money, but I'm not going to post it in this thread because it contains my true identity. PM me and I'll reply with my email address. Dig?

    And yes, PayPal is safe...it's owned by Ebay and most of Ebay's financial transactions are done through PayPal.

    I will post the balance here as money shows up.

    OK...current balance of the "Keep Bella alive so we can eat her panties off" fund: $50.

    Thanks folks!

    One correction: I don't think you have to sign-up for a free account anymore to send money one time. Try the "Send Money" link without signing up...in the "For" section, just select "Services/Other" and it shouldn't ask you for any additional info. I *think*. Let me know if this doesn't work!

    OK, cutoff reached. Balance: $200 (minus some PayPal fees, but I'll make those up).

    If anyone still wants to contribute, PM me...I'm going to bed, but I can accomodate any additional donations first thing in the morning.

    Thanks to everyone!

    Bella,
    I've been on some pretty expensive meds for nearly 20 years now, and I can't get affordable insurance either. I get most of my meds from Canada through the Minnesota Senior Federation. MSF doesn't sell drugs, but they contract with foreign pharmacies to get you bargain rates -- much safer than just picking at random from the internet, and you get a slight discount from the already low prices. While MSF was formed for seniors in Minnesota, membership is open to all, regardless of age or residence. Annual cost is something like $10 or $20.

    The pharmacy I deal with is in Canada, but they'll get your meds from other countries when it's cheaper (if you like). My last order had one Rx filled from Canada and one from Germany. Both netted me a savings of 65-80 percent over local pharmacies.

    I have my doctor write a Rx for six months and fax it to them. They can then fill it for three months, and when I call them back a couple months later they can send the other three months worth. It's saved me ten$ of thousand$.

    Unfortunately, they don't seem to have every med available, and some that they have aren't much cheaper than buying in the U.S., but I'd look into it if you're going to be on these meds for an extended period of time.
