LOS ANGELES — Elexis Monroe, a Girlfriends Films director/performer and host of the company's web show "The Vault," has become very ill and is in need of financial assistance to help fund her medical expenses.
A recent post on LukeisBack.com detailed Monroe's sudden illness.
Jon Tribb writes: "We have to help Elexis Monroe. It’s simple and it’s very, very sad. It started with Elexis’s alarming tweets just a week ago:
"So here it is. I’m sick. I need surgery. a surgery that I have to have or I may die. No fucking joke. I need help from my fans and friends! Please… I don’t ask for much but I love my kid. My kid had no father so I can’t leave her alone. I think my pressure is about to explode… I’m going to set up a page and site for donations and funds. My face is bent cut open and chopped apart, I’m terrified. Not even kidding. I’m trying to get a page set up to donate for friends and fans. Please… This is my face. I have to have this surgery, it’s in my bones. Truth is I just found out I’m sick. I have a mass, a massive infection in my facial bones. Don’t know how or why but if I don’t have surgery, I could die. An abscess will kill you! I can’t leave my baby. My kid is my life. I’m her only parent.
"This was followed a couple of days later by: First surgery — removing bones, teeth, cutting gum apart to get inside my jaw bone, then up inside my cheek and left nasal canal as of now. That’s if the infection has gone down enough by then. Then recover, then go in for #2 to make sure jaw is healed enough to begin pairing. Then there’s a few more. Little by little.
"As long as the abscess doesn’t any further in my facial bones, towards the brain, or in bloodstream, I should have a solid chance of full recovery. An abscess is no joke. Then I’m going to fix everything my last dentist f*cked up. Because if not, if I don’t get all the bad bones out and make sure everything is corrected right, I could get an abscess again & more severe."
The post continued, "And just a few hours ago Girlfriends Films posted on their forum:
Elexis was optimistic earlier in the week but had a rough Thanksgiving day. She finally drove herself to the hospital earlier today, where they sedated her a few hours ago, hopefully to drain the jaw abcess that’s been the cause of the problems. Since then, no news."
Earlier today, Monroe tweeted: "My mom's name is Kathleen Sue Harper. The Paypal and everything is in her name right now. I'll post more soon in a lot of pain. Sorry.
"My mom is setting up a Paypal for donations for my surgeries. She set up a bank account separate from these donations. Please donate."
