Below is a message from his wife:

"On Superbowl Sunday, Blackshadow came down with what we assumed was your garden variety flu. By Thursday he was so sick that I had to call the paramedics; he was admitted to the ICU that night; at that time they knew he had pneumonia, but further tests revealed that he had a massive MRSA infection in his bloodstream and lungs. Within 24 hours he was intubated and sedated. He went into septic shock and I almost lost him for than once; it took a week and a half just to get him stabilized. He spent nearly a month in ICU and has been slowly recovering for the past 3 weeks. The infection is gone but the damage it's done is going to take a lot of work to recover from. He IS going to recover, thank God, but we've got a long way to go yet.

At this point I'm guessing that we're going to be facing around $5,000 to cover what the insurance won't - and Blackshadow's only receiving about half what he usually earns while he's on Disability. Any amount that can be gathered through a fundraiser would be a blessing. Thank you so much."


For transparency, while I might be in charge of this fundraiser, Sir Cumference the Flatulent, Roman Fyseek, and Blackshadow's wife have access to the email and the PayPal and email account.

Boobies!

There. That ought to pin this the top of the thread, right? 

For those of you who don't know, here is Vincent Blackshadow's Fark user profile.

:(
 
2013-03-16 03:52:15 PM
That sucks. I'm so sorry.
 
2013-03-16 03:52:25 PM
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no... damn and a half.  He's a great guy, and I just got an icy cold pit in my stomach reading that headline.

Get well soon, v_b, and best wishes to all-a-y'all out there.
 
2013-03-16 03:53:37 PM
He IS on the road to recovery at this point. He spoke for the first time in a month just a couple days ago, and things are looking up.
 
2013-03-16 03:53:52 PM
This guy was super-helpful to me when I first came to LA to build my hearse. I really hope he comes out of this okay.

I just read the first thing you posted in this thread.  *whew*  I'm relieved that he's making progress, anyways.
 
2013-03-16 03:55:34 PM
Met him in Vegas a couple years back, he really is nine kinds of awesome. I'm off to PayPal.
 
2013-03-16 03:55:51 PM
And here I thought I was the fark favorite. God Dammit.

Hope you get better dude.
 
2013-03-16 03:55:52 PM
SCARY tag, no kidding.
Speedy recovery, my friend.
 
2013-03-16 03:57:15 PM
I wondered where he was. That shiat is scary. Green this modmins!
 
2013-03-16 03:59:40 PM
I may have jumped the gun by posting this midday on a Saturday, rather than 8am Monday morning. :/
 
2013-03-16 04:00:25 PM
is paypal the only way?
 
2013-03-16 04:02:03 PM
At the moment, yes, PayPal is the only way. I figured that since everyone on this site has PayPal, it'd be the easiest way to go. I know...

The PayPal account will be linked directly to Blackshadow's bank account, to keep things easy.

I wondered where he was too. I saw him post on FB the other day, so that's a good sign.

Feel better. *hugs*
 
2013-03-16 04:06:16 PM
I thought Black Vampire was the favorite.

*shrugs*

Get well soon.
 
2013-03-16 04:06:17 PM
That's terrible. I am so sorry to hear that.
 
2013-03-16 04:07:57 PM
Get better dude. All the way better.

/Off to donate. It's a well worth while cause.
 
2013-03-16 04:09:04 PM
A favorite. I believe Nasser still stands as THE favorite.

Girls, girls, you're all pretty.
 
2013-03-16 04:17:43 PM
 
2013-03-16 04:22:00 PM
Holy sh*t, I really like that guy

I'll see if I can wrestle a donation together

Maybe do it again then, no shame in getting this out there as much as possible.


Also:

I think you should repost it.
 
2013-03-16 04:26:19 PM
Oh no! I'm glad to hear he's recovering.
 
2013-03-16 04:28:36 PM
Hopefully, Mike understands that my blackmail photos go live if he doesn't make this thread one of those perma-top threads.

Definitely.

Any extra awareness generated for the Day Crew on a weekday will do a lot of good.

:(  Made me sad

I'm not quite in the best financial position right now, but I'll donate what I can.  Every little bit helps, right?

...I've never done this before, but when sending money, I click the personal tab and..living expenses?  I know how much of a prick Paypal can be in this situation, so I'm not sure what button to select
 
2013-03-16 04:38:14 PM
Poor guy has been laid low since THE SUPERBOWL ?


I at least hope he didn't bet on the 9ers
 
2013-03-16 04:41:28 PM
He's not one I've had much chance to know well but I really enjoy seeing him on Fark. My thoughts and well wishes for him and his family.
 
2013-03-16 04:42:41 PM
Yes, please do repost it.  I have some mad money coming in next week that I'll gladly send.
 
2013-03-16 04:44:57 PM
I will definitely be reposting over the next few days, to catch AM and PM crews, as well as weekday folks.

Also, if you can earmark the donation as a gift, I think PayPal is a little less of a dick. Otherwise, go with what sounds best to you.
 
2013-03-16 04:46:27 PM
I'd wondered what was going on with him. That's a good dude, right there.

Living expense.

True dat.

...after a little more research, it appears that marking your donation as "gift" or "personal" (rather than purchase) are the least painful options PayPal will allow.
 
2013-03-16 04:55:27 PM
I'm sorry, who is this person?

If you choose personal and gift and use a checking account (or positive paypal balance) there is no fee.

Paypal is giving me an error on the address, or is it just me?
 
2013-03-16 05:01:09 PM
Done.....
 
2013-03-16 05:01:19 PM
Done n done.

Don't copypasta. Type it in from scratch.

I had to manually type it all out. It didn't like it when I copied and pasted.

Really sorry to hear it, hope he gets better.
 
2013-03-16 05:04:27 PM
Anyway, get better VB, the world, and fark, is a better place with you in it.
 
2013-03-16 05:11:02 PM
I'm very sorry to hear this.
I hope he makes a full recovery - without going bankrupt thanks to "f**k 'em for every dime" for-profit health care.
