Save Steve Campaign
« on: July 12, 2018, 04:16:43 PM »
Hi everyone.  Hey for those who still hang out at this site, please consider a donation to the Creator of QFI Steve Alexander at www.gofundme.com/steves-kidney-journey.  Steve and his family have some rough times ahead, so please consider a 10,20 dollar donation. Do it for Steve (aka Blackthorne), do it for Steve's Kids.... :)  Thanks,

                                                                                                                                                     Chadly.

Hanging in there.  Some days are good, some are bad.  My lab reports/blood work is terrible.  My GFR, kidney function, is at 12% now.  I'll begin dialysis next month most likely.  My wife, Jordan, was tested and is a match, but there's still a bunch of time before I can do the transplant.  They are also still trying to discover the nature of the disease that reoccured and killed my transplant.  It's the same disease that originally killed my kidneys.  It's been affecting my transplant for the last two years, but just went critical this year.

It sucks.  I feel terrible a lot, but the support I've had from everyone has been amazing.  I'll make the road back.

I saw this on FB:

/* Order of the Thorne
July 11 at 6:29 PM

Some exciting news. Our good friend the Space Quest Historian is holding a special streaming event next Friday 20th July @ 11pm CEST (5pm East Coast US) to help raise money for Steve.

The man himself, Steven Alexander will join the stream, as will I (and maybe a couple of other guests) while we watch and laugh our way through Troels trying to play a King's Quest game.

The goal, of course, is to raise more money for Steve, so we've got some competitions and some game keys to giveaway! It's going to be a great time, and it's going to a great cause! */

I was surprised that this wasn't already posted on this site, since I nabbed it from the Order of the Thorne FB site.  I plan on watching and participating!!

Less than 30 minutes to SHOWTIME!

I've never "attended" one of these streaming events before... not sure what to expect, but I trust it will be amusing!

I just arrived in Toronto as I am going on holiday to the east coast and my flight heads out tomorrow.  I've got the air conditioning cranked, a beer full of Goodness (aka Guinness) and my laptop hooked-up & switched on.

Glad you enjoyed it! I personally had a great time, and it was especially awesome Josh Mandel and Ken Allen were there.

I tuned in for the stream in it's entireity and enjoyed it very much. Very cool to hear from not only Josh Mandel, but also Ken Allen.  Nice to hear IQ alumni's as well.  I donated amd convinced a couple friends to do so as well.  Next time I will sign up for twitch and be able to post comments in the chat, :) 8)
