I know this might come as a bit shock to you, I didn’t intend to make you worried, but since now things are out of my hands I had to share it with you. I need to undergo an operation. It’s nothing very serious, and the doctor has said to me that there’s a new cure that will almost guarantee me perfect eye sight when it’s all over (after months of painful physical therapy). On the other hand, I don’t have enough money to pay for my treatment. That’s why I’m counting on you, my loving, giving [person you’re writing to]. Please send [amount you need] to me as soon as you can so I can have this social life-saving procedure. I will repay you every cent very soon. My friends, my teachers, and my pets are counting on you. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.
