Here’s a comment from Roman himself:

“I’m a self employed artist and I do not have insurance. The bills will start arriving next week, which I assume will add up to the cost of a small private island. One of my good friends set up a donation page to help with this. Believe  me, anything helps. I’ve been blown away by the outpouring of support from friends, fans and family. I thank everyone, from the bottom of my jerky-like heart, and I’m just so thankful of everything.” – Roman Dirge
