    LAN party at loonym's house and we can throw him a big thank you party! :D All kidding aside, I can only feel the pain he must go through and respect him in the absolute highest light possible. Hope for the best and if we can help him out, let me know. More than happy to help a fellow cruncher and a great person out in dire need.

    I have a pm from loonym over at xs where he contacted me about meeting up. He is planning on bringing his daughter down to south Florida in December. He mentioned if his health allowed and it gave a brief description of his health issue. This was nothing related to this thread so I can post it for those that are concerned about him being legit and this whole find raising idea as well.

    I don't crunch. But I am thinking of starting since I've read his thread at XS and once I get back from vacation.

    I will lend him monetary support as soon as the way to do it is determined, please let me know how to do so.

    OK, let's keep this thread active. I'll be happy to take up a collection through this weekend, as long as people trust me with their cash. Loony will get every penny and then some. PM me with how much you'd like to donate, and I'll send you my paypal address.

    Yukikaze it'll be an honor to have you crunch for us man. It's for a good cause and plus it's a very friendly and fun way to have some competition among ourselves. Your support is highly appreciated.

    Paul I have your paypal, can I just paypal you the amount?
    Paulieg says thanks.

    I'd be willing to contribute. A family member of mine just recently went through Leukemia treatment for the past year.

    Regardless of meeting End's Meet, and struggling for funds, I found thing's that I could cut out of my monthly budget that let me contribute as much as possible without letting myself drown in debt. Cutting out a coffee from DD for a week, or not buying lunch's and sock that away to contribute to a monthly donation. Every little bit helps with medical bill's.

    Also, I'm not sure of what treatments he'll need, but being on a donor list to donate bone marrow, and donating blood is a great way to help without costing any money. Even in the darkest times, that can be a little glimmer of hope..


    Keep me posted via PM/IM or Skype on what is happening with this Paulie.

    Speaking of treatment I think he posted over at xs which in fact I think fit posted it here, that he had gave up on treatment. Not sure if it was money or not. However, if that's the case we gonna hel him get his treatment :rockout:

    That is true. Does he know about this thread. Maybe he can chime in and let us know how it's going???
  13. twilyth Guest

    If it's the post I'm thinking of, the decision was made because there didn't appear to be anything left to do that would have a good chance of being beneficial. But don't quote me. Read this a couple weeks ago I think.

    Has this tree produced any fruit? I've never recieved a PM or seen anything about actually donating to the guy... only a bunch of talk coming from users saying that they are willing.

    OK guys. I zero'd my paypal account (except for my contribution) so that only the donated money will be in there, so there will be no question that he will receive all donated funds. I will collect until Sunday, then get the money to loony. My paypal addy is paulgow07@gmail.com. Please send me a PM to let me know you donated funds. Thanks everyone. Hopefully this will make a difference!!

    Just Pm'ed ya Paulieg

    If I could cost wise, I would fold/crunch till the stuff falls apart.. But, due to it being very high for electric here.. no can do... But, that doesn't mean that I don't "tip my hat" for everyone that can do it.

    Now, with that thrown out there. I'm all for throwing bones to this cause. Worry cause.

    I hope he can get better. I've seen ton of personal pictures of him and the little girl.. almost makes you break down thinking of it.
