So this isn't a super fun or lighthearted subject, but one of our own is going through scary times. All I'm asking is to send a little love his way, be it words of encouragement, crazy memes and gifs (because you know that's how we do) or hitting up the donation box. TheBlackBoxLies was diagnosed with leukemia and while he's handling this like a champ with a lot of positivity, knowing that he's in your thoughts or prayers will go a long damn way. We're family here and this is one of our brothers, I just want him to know he's never alone. I know times are tight financially so if you can't give, that's completely okay...words of kindness are free, and ultimately that's what this is about-supporting a friend.
This is from Jeff's GoFundMe account, since his words say it best:
On September 2nd, 2014 I was unexpectedly diagnosed with a blood cancer called Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. Though a huge shock for myself and my family, my prognosis and outlook is very good due to the creation of a handful of miracle drugs in the past decade. I have created this funding page to help me afford my hospital bills from my initial treatment. The medication I need to take to keep the cancer at bay is likely going to be lifelong, but I don't plan on letting this disease define who I am as a person. The past month and a half I have had lots of support from friends and family and these days I'm starting to feel a lot better physically. I have a long road ahead, but I'm very positive about my future. If you're wondering how you can help, here's how. Any donation would be of great help in these tough times. Thank you to anyone who wishes to contribute.
