There is a Pokemon player in Evansville, IN (Very close to where US Nationals is held each year). He has aggressive cancer and is on his fourth fight with it. They’ve said he has extremely slim chances of making it through this one and his estimated time to live is much shorter than the process of applying for wishes takes. The kid just wants to go to Lego Land before he dies. So the Pokemon Community has stepped up and said we’re going to make sure he gets that.
You may have seen this circulating on a few other communities, but it’s verified legitimate and I want UPCCC to be involved. I’ve taken the plunge and made the first donation myself on our behalf.
Just a small update (I think more detail is coming on the donation page):
They told Devon tonight that the money was being raised and that he was going to get to go to Lego Land.
The news raised his spirits so much that some of the depression subsided and he saw in increase an vitals and health across the board.
This initiative has literally given him more life.
I’ll stick in a bit in Friday when I get paid, this is so sad and im glad that it has seen alot of attention and hopefully will give this poor little guy something to smile about. Props to charlie for bringing this to the attention of the community, it is a worthy cause.
Just as a heads up, if anyone out there still wants to donate, they’ve said the additional money will either cover unexpected LegoLand costs or, if not needed for that, will continue to work toward the $25,000 in additional medical bills his family has incurred during his sickness. So feel free to give even if it feels late.
