Helping as much as I can right now. Get well soon!

duenor: don't know the guy but I don't need to to want to help.


Your comment broke me, just a little. I definitely started leaking. Thank you.

Someone must be new here. Get well man.
 
2013-03-16 06:28:22 PM
I like this Farker- good guy. I'm off to donate. It's not much, but hope it will help. Feel better soon!
 
2013-03-16 06:28:26 PM
Crap! I'll see what I can do. Got to meet him at a TF BBQ probably 5 or 6 years ago. He is a genuine nice guy.

Can't do a damn thing right now, can barely manage my own family through the next week or so.

But as you mentioned, bills don't evaporate. And I have MRSA colonized on me, I just got over my 5th abscess in the last 12 months, so I have some idea of how awful it can get. It was on my gums, which made me terrified of it getting into my bloodstream if it ruptured inside my mouth. I see from this story that I was right to worry.

I'll kick something his way at the end of the month, when I can. Because MRSA sucks.

Jeebus christmas. My thoughts are with you Vincent! I adore the crap out of you and I'll give what I can.

Get better fast.

sevente: not trying to be a dick but who? I don' t know the name and the Google's only seem to turn up stuff about motorbikes. Is he a farker? If so then the headline should probably say that rather than fark favourite (whatever that means). Speaking of which, without knowing who this person is the headline doesn't really elicit much sympathy to donate.

With that being said I hope that Mr Blackshadow makes a full recovery and wish he and his family all the best.


I have to agree with sevente here. My initial reaction to beggars that demand money is usually not favorable. But since I had BETTER give like there is no tomorrow, I'll see what I can do.
 
2013-03-16 06:34:05 PM

Witchydiva: GREEN!!!!!

Alright - for folks new to the thread - Blackshadow is on the road to recovery, and able to speak for the first time in over a month (as of a couple days ago). If you can make a donation (small, large - whatever you might be able to afford), please mark it "gift" or "personal" to avoid PayPal's most painful fees.

Also, I just gave Blackshadow's wife an update on the total so far (was $750 at the time), and this is her response:

"I just told Blackshadow; he said, and I quote, 'Holy shiat! I love those guys.' Thank you so much! "

I had the pleasure of sharing drinks with him in Vegas (and sitting across from him at dinner Saturday night).  Vincent is a HELL of a guy, and I know a lot of really cool people. He's near the top of that list.

Here's hoping he gets well very quickly.
 
2013-03-16 06:48:09 PM
We talked about Sebenzas once upon a time. I'm in.

He is a total class act and I'm glad to hear he is on the mend.

If you read this at some point Mike you still owe me a surfing lesson if I make my way out to Cali!

Thank you by the way Witchdiva for letting us know what is going on, and putting this together.

Hoping for a full and speedy recovery for V.B. and all my fellow Farkers/Farkettes who are facing adversity.  MRSA is a biatch, though my mother was fighting lung cancer, it was MRSA pneumonia that took her.  Through lay-off and furlough I will find a way to donate.  Get well my friend.

Purelilac: Get well soon, bananadragon.


Just took my last antibiotic (this round anyway) a couple days ago. This was the first time I didn't have to get anything cut open! Huzzah! But thanks for thinking of me ^_^

Franko:  "Relying on the generosity of others" is not a health plan.

I love you and I would be sending this thread to my Congresscritters if they weren't Jim McGovern, Elizabeth Warren, and uh, not John Kerry. :-\ Alas, they already agree with you/us, which is great for the cause and not so great for affecting change in the people who disagree. Or something.

Bathia_Mapes: Thank you and best wishes. :-)


O_o no, thank YOU, dear lady. I think. I'm still not sure that TF is something to be grateful for ;-)

LlamaGirl: Oh Bananarama I love you


OH WAIT YES IT IS I LOVE YOU TOO LLAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA

I'll give what i can. After dealing with providing hospice care for a friend last year to save costs I've seen too many close friends get wiped out financially due to illness and accident. Cancer is an unkind mistress.

Why do the people of "the greatest country on earth" have to resort to charity when they get sick? Other developed countries have figured out how to get people the care the need without having to go bankrupt or plead help to survive.

If you've opposed single payer healthcare not only are you incapable of doing the math vs our current costly system but you're an asshole for causing unnecessary suffering and destruction of families through crushing healthcare debt.

You have my sincerest condolences, panfried.


tudorgurl: I wish I could. Right now, every spare penny is going to help my dad while my mom is in hospice. But I will light a candle for him and hope for the best. I'm sorry that that's the best I can do.


And all the best to you and your folks as well, tudorgurl.

My husband got MRSA in his last year of ALS and being wheelchair and bed bound it was a total biatch for me to maintain. I never got it but my 7-year-old son did and I had to spend a week in the Children's Hospital with him hoping he wouldn't die along with his father.

God Bless. xoxoxox

I did not expect this on a Saturday, much less the day before St. Patty's Day.

IMHO, 12.fl.oz. nailed it in Arelas' memorial thread:

"I never could really put my finger on why I kept coming back to fark. The name calling, trolls, and some of the narrow thinking that I am as guilty as the next person.

Then I think I figured it out, WE are all one big dysfunctional family. We call each other names and get in our little fights but when the chips are down, we have each other's backs."

Wait...*my* v_b? Oh wow, I'm so sorry to just be hearing of this now. We had a great conversation at a SoCal Fark party back in the day - in his line of work, he had some fascinating insights into current events.

He always had nice things to say and cracked me up countless times on TF.

Certified 100% genuine good cool guy, though I kinda do want his stuff. (Valentino's calling card? Hell yeah!)

So glad he's on the road to recovery...the world would be much duller without him. I'll spread the word tonight and donate when I get back tomorrow.

Hugs to you and the boys, Mrs. v_b - Mike always spoke with the greatest contentment and love about his amazing wife and kids...I know your strength is what got him through this. When that bastard's up and around again, tell him he owes me a girl drink. :)

That is so moving, Fark is an awsome community. :)
