As some of you already know, one of our most beloved Fark families is struggling. puggysmom is busy kicking cancer's ass, and she and Argh_Dammit could use our support - both emotionally and financially. Her copays are piling up, as well as the household bills. If you can spare anything, even a dollar, it will help. You can send words of support and donations via PayPal to ti­edy­ecro­s­s[nospam-﹫-backwards]liam­g*c­o­m.

The Fark community has proven to be one of the kindest and most giving groups on Earth, and we're all proud to be a part of it.

Taking into account that this is Fark and snark not only appreciated but graded, we do ask that if you do send something via PP that you keep the subject line as innocuous as possible. We would hate for the account to get shut down due to any misunderstandings.

Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan bless you.

Sending all my love and some of my money. :)
 
2010-07-13 03:59:32 PM  
Sure thing.
 
2010-07-13 04:05:07 PM  
We have been working on this over for a couple of days and Drew has been kind enough to allow us to do this. I know this might be asking a lot and many of the new folks don't know Argh and puggys but they really could use our help.
 
2010-07-13 04:05:56 PM  
And as a note, please be considerate when completing the donation to PayPal. No profanities or references to illegal activities, or anything that brings a questioning eye to what is trying to be done here.

The last thing Arghie and puggysmom need to deal with is having their PayPal account shut down due to inappropriate or illegal activities being referenced in the comments field.

We're trying to help members of our Fark family. Please remember that.

Oh and for some more details, puggysmom has been diagnosed with Stage 4 b-cell lymphoma and has started chemo this week...It didn't start well though but hopefully things will turn around.

Pete, this is awesome of you to post. Donated.
 
2010-07-13 04:19:48 PM  
Absolutely.
 
2010-07-13 04:30:28 PM  
i'm in ...
 
2010-07-13 04:31:19 PM  
Sent some over. First time doing this on Fark, but it's a good cause for sure.

Best wishes. My grandmother's going through chemo right now, I know how hard it can be.
 
2010-07-13 04:32:22 PM  
There is a lot of snark in this world.

There is a lot of apathy too.

There is a lot of pain as well.

We have the chance, right now, to help one of our own.

Someone who has put together epic parties, made everyone laugh and been a friend when they needed to hear some great advice.


Now is the time. This is no bullshiat. This is Argh's wife fighting for her very life.

They are real world friends of mine. Please do what you can.

I got back here and will be polluting the forum begging for help.

Fark is a wonderful place when it brings its collective power to bear....do it now....one of our own needs help.

So help.

thanks

vincent_blackshadow: i'm in ...


Um, in your case, I don't think that requires an announcement. ;)
 
2010-07-13 04:34:26 PM  
Sup all. If any info changes lemme know, we're gonna punt this link onto the main page of Fark tomorrow around 1pm ET
 
2010-07-13 04:35:35 PM  
I got your back Arghie
 
2010-07-13 04:39:55 PM  
Anything for my favorite naked clown.

Dancin_In_Anson: with Stage 4 b-cell lymphoma

Uh-oh. Stage 4 is not a good thing.
 
2010-07-13 05:02:35 PM  
I gave what I can... I wish it was more. Hope my little bit can help in some way.
 
2010-07-13 05:03:13 PM  
My prayers are with you! Donated. Please keep us updated!
 
2010-07-13 05:04:44 PM  
I have several gift/rebate Visa cards with a few bucks on each of them. This is a good place to burn those off.
 
2010-07-13 05:28:01 PM  
Best to you both, you farkers.
 
2010-07-13 05:31:30 PM  
I just started a new job, so I'm still adjusting my budget to fit plus a huge power bill, but I figure I can throw something out there.

Hopefully, my paltry $10 will join together with a bunch of other people throwing a few bucks out there and be able to make a difference.

Arise Chicken can't post, but says:

"Thank you Dancin_In_Anson and Drew (and anyone else involved) for doing this. These two people are SO incredibly special to me and so many others. The number of lives they have touched is immeasurable. Anything you can do will be so appreciated."
 
2010-07-13 05:37:08 PM  
Arghie's such a good natured, generous soul and loves his wife so much. This just hurts my heart to hear.
 
2010-07-13 05:40:27 PM  
Money...send it.....they need it.

/whoring it up for an awesome reason

Flab: Dancin_In_Anson: with Stage 4 b-cell lymphoma

Uh-oh. Stage 4 is not a good thing.


If anybody can beat this, Sue can.
 
2010-07-13 05:47:06 PM  
Thank you Drew.

/hates brown nosers
//but fark it, thank you so so very much
 
2010-07-13 05:48:23 PM  
I had no idea. They're both such sweet people.
 
2010-07-13 05:53:18 PM  
No problem, anything for those classy folks. I am donating now.

Keep your heads up, Argh and puggysmom
 
2010-07-13 05:54:02 PM  
But I expect a visit from a clown.
 
2010-07-13 06:02:49 PM  
You'll get nothing and like it!
 
2010-07-13 06:05:27 PM  
And yes, I'm shaming all of you.

I donated just $10.

This family is probably going through hell right now. There's the stress of the illness itself and the fact that chemo usually feels worse than the illness itself. They also have to worry about how much money they have, how much they make, what they can sell to get more, whether they'll have to declare bankruptcy, whether they'll lose their house/car/etc....

And all I coughed up was one third of my usual bar tab on a night out.

If a misanthropic cynical sociopath like me can part with two martinis not counting tip, I'm sure there's people that can part with more. And if you don't think you can, I hope you picture this family in your mind when you buy that really stupid thing you could live without...that new DVD, that six pack of beer when you've already got a fifth of vodak, that fifth of vodak when you've already got a six pack of beer, that snuggie you think is ironic to own but actually just makes you a douche...picture that family and cough up a few bucks.

Mom's death this year (yeah, cancer) completely cleaned me out, but I've got a couple of bucks kicking around PayPal after selling a few of her things. It's on the way. If they're wondering why it's not a round number, that's why.

Hoping to hell they do better than we did.
 
2010-07-13 06:08:40 PM  
also fark puts in hidden - characters in the name field of the address. Simply retyping the last part will not fix it.

Once again good luck to Argh and puggysmom.

Abstruse: If a misanthropic cynical sociopath like me can part with two martinis not counting tip, I'm sure there's people that can part with more.


Bully for you. I sent more than that and it was money I thought I'd put toward groceries.

Oh well. A couple of missed meals won't hurt me much.
 
2010-07-13 06:11:56 PM  
$10 on its way from me as well.

For all of our differences and arguments, this is the sort of thing which reminds me why I keep coming back to Fark.
 
2010-07-13 06:17:23 PM  
jeh! done.

$10 sent. Argh's nekkid clown pics hold a special place in my heart.

I have no idea who either of you are, but if Drew supports this so do I.

I don't know puggysmom, but Argh's been around for a while.

I visited Sue and Argh at the oncology center while one very brave lady got her first dose of poison. Her spirits were great. If anyone can beat this it is Sue. Thank you, Drew, for doing
this.
 
2010-07-13 06:38:21 PM  
Very dear people.

Actually, Argh behaved quite well. And they didn't seem to mind me being there, unlike most civilized people.

I wish I had been able to be there.
 
2010-07-13 07:04:24 PM  
I'm in. Been following the story on her caringbridge page and both of their Facebook pages. Argh was one of the first Farkers I talked to and one of the funniest I've seen. He and his wife have big hearts and are such good people...it makes my heart glad to see people stepping up to help them.
