NZ-born international burlesque star, Eva Strangelove, is currently hospitalised in Texas after narrowly escaping death due to contracting Strep Pneumonia (bacterial meningitis). She is recovering well but, as she is not a US citizen, her medical bills are skyrocketing. Friends, family and fans have begun an overwhelming global campaign to raise funds to support Eva in this medical and financial crisis. “Save Our Strangelove” (http://saveourstrangelove.tumblr.com/) has currently raised over $16,000 and counting.

For those of you who are unable to make it but would still like to show your support, online donations can be made here:

An update from Eva!

My last night in hospital! It felt like this day would never come. I am so happy to be alive that staying positive has been easy, especially with my incredible husband Dave being here for me, keeping my chin up, keeping track of everything which I can barely wrap my head around and helping make the bed-ridden days go faster.
As you all know, he has been a complete Godsend. He is my rock, and he kept his head above water while I lay there, comatose on life support for weeks, on the verge of death. He stayed so strong and positive for me. I will never get pissy at him for any reason ever again in my whole life!
It has been the longest and most torturous, agonizing month of my entire life and I will never look at life the same again, seeing as I almost lost mine. My wonderful family even flew over from NZ and Australia to be with me, especially when the docs said i only have a 60% chance of pulling thru.
I still cannot walk without the aid of a walker, breathe fully without the aid of an oxygen tank nor is my voice completely back, but I go home tomorrow and so begins my physical therapy to get my strength, lung capacity and body back! I will be taking a break from modeling and performing for another month while I recoup, but will be back in full swing by late March for Viva Las Vegas. This is my goal! It will still be my year!
The two words “Thank You” cannot begin to cover my gratitude to the countless folks who have made donations towards my hospital bills! My goodness, I am overwhelmed! Nearly 13k! Just to be clear, I *am* insured, but it does not begin to cover what this month-long hospital stay is going to set us back. It is in the six figure mark but we don’t care, because I’m alive! ♥ And of course, thank you all for your prayers and good vibes, it all worked of course!
I had the worst case of ARDS that the docs had ever seen. ARDS is Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome aka total lung failure as a result of my immunity being down thanks to the flu, which turned into pneumonia. It was the years of yoga, not smoking and a life support machine called ECMO that kept me alive. The ECMO machine basically pumped my blood out of me thru two finger-wide tubes directly from inside my heart and filtered it back in for me every minute, to give my lungs a chance to rest and recover.
And I recovered so well and quickly that they did not need to give me a tracheostomy as expected. I was nicknamed the Golden Child of the ICU ward.
Im alive! Screw you death! Heaven can wait. I got sh*t to do.
