Happy Holidays to you all. I don't blog too much but I've had the urge to ask for help for this Dtoider for a while. He's been around for a long time, probably gamed with some of you. But, I doubt most of you know of his situation.
Now I've known this for about a year, and in that time I've sent what little money I could and as many games as I could because believe it or not gaming helps take his mind of his situation. Ramen is a luxury sometimes for this man, I wish I was exaggerating.
And don't get me wrong, he's tried to get his situation resolved. Due to his condition he couldn't even work a part time job at Wal-Mart. He was finally able to see a doctor by getting into a group that sponsors doctors visits for the needy, but the doctor he got doesn't believe his condition is that bad and won't recommend him for disability(even though it's a covered illness on the disability website). She gave him antibiotics, not even pain meds, and it's known antibiotics do nothing for this condition.
I'm sure some of you are wanting a name by now, and I'm sorry to say he wishes to remain anonymous, which is why it's wrecked my brain figuring out a way to set up something with donations for him. So my pledge to all who donate(money,games,food,etc) is I will document every donation and show you that it was sent to this dtoider. I will be using my personal PayPal(he doesn't have a bank account to even set up PayPal) and will show every transaction. If the donations get big enough I will open a separate account just for this at my local Credit Union(almost zero fees that way).
I know it's a lot to ask for help around Christmas, but this dude hasn't had one in years. I sent him a couple of games and will try to send some money, but I'd like to make it a good one for him. I'm hoping to raise enough so he can afford a real doctor for a second opinion and hopefully get on disability. Google(images too) the disease and you will see why the need for anonymity and the reason work is hard to come by.
My Personal Email for food/game donations(so you can get an address)
Thanks in advance to all those who can help.
