I'm not someone that believes but, I have noticed what happens to people when a Dr tells you you're going to die. When faced with the end of your own life, suddenly the thought of an afterlife or help from "god" doesn't sound so silly.

I think it's  one of those never judge a man till you've walked a mile in his shoes thing. If someone's dying and wants to pray, let him pray in peace.

Let's not turn the discussion into either proselytism opportunity or an anti-religion rant. The focus is the article, the man's plight. Let's stay on topic.

Blizzard are a gigantic cash cow and they can't stump up some readies for their employee?  He obviously means a great deal to then, else they would not be asking for us to help!  Stop being so cheap and help your employee out!  I wish you well and speedy recovery!  I lost my dad to cancer and especially at this time of year, it's very difficult!  I hate cancer and it should have been cured by now!!

Self improvement is masturbation - and I love it!

I'm sorry for your loss

Blizzard has nothing to do this promotion  (beyond the guy being promoted as a blizzard employee)

I've donated to help Ron and his family but it's a tragedy that he's had to turn to the gaming public to help subsidize his insurance company. He has a health-care plan and shouldn't be paying one god damn cent toward the cost of fighting his illness.

While I do feel sorry for the man and his family for what they are going through, but if I earned as much money as him then I would have made sure I had things covered just in case anything happened for whatever reason.

Maybe some rich people will take pity on his plight and donate the money to him.

I have to agree with this. This guy obviously made a lot more money than I do (or probably ever will) and the hard truth is if I was diagnosed with the same condition as him I certainly would not receive any help from this guy. Just because he worked on a game I used to play...really. There are more needy people with this kind of problem but do they get a thread on mmorpg.com or any other website?

btw prayers will not help this guy but medical treatment and money might. Truth sucks but it's the truth.

Hate to be cold hearted but there are thousands of people dying everyday. He's on stage iv, usually that is a death sentence.

Medical Care is a problem to begin with. America has bright lights and looks like a lovely place but when you get sick, good luck.

It's a sad situation but it's not for blizzard to sort out its his health insurance company.  

That's screwed up thinking, it really is. How many employees get cancer and are in this desperate situation? There is no general rule for these sort of things. Sometimes a larger entity has to do the right thing.

I hope Blizzard get involved and help out, regardless of he's how much he earns...sometimes you can't plan for every eventuality and insurance firms always operated on the premise that they should never pay out...when that comes to someones health, that's lethal.

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

I wish the best for him. Having experienced that hell twice i really hope he gets the necessary aid. One thing is certain, for the type of job he does he should have a very very good health insurance coverage to ease that burden.

Be well, Ron Nakada.

Spot on.  Was skimming this thread back to front and the amount of stumping and other stuff going on in this thread is infuriating. I don't tend to get redhot just reading the forums but I did this time, livid. I've been guilty at times. Though soon after the fact I am often well aware of it and feel pretty much like shit, even if it's in an online format.  Guess there's a time and place and this really wasn't one of those places. The guy hasn't done anything to anyone but be a employee at a gaming company that people love to hate. Really dislike humans sometimes.

Hope he gets a lucky break and survives. Death sucks.

Edit: Well to be fair, I was already worked up cause of Steam I guess.

And why not help all those people?

What better way to use money than to save lives?

Any company that decides to use their profits to help people - thumbs up!

The Social Security Administration has a compassionate allowance listing. Stage IV Large Intestinal Cancer with Distant Metastasis is one that will automatically get him approved for Disability. I know because I am a Colon Cancer survivor. http://www.ssa.gov/compassionateallowances/conditions.htm

Short-term covers up to 12 weeks depending on your policy. If he has Aflac then that is even better, after short term disability ends, long term disability kicks in and that lasts until you are age 65, but it all depends on the types of policies and coverage that he has. And to the person who said staying positive helps. Staying positive has no bearing what so ever on how you will respond to treatment. I had Stage 3C Colon Cancer and I kept wanting to just kick the bucket, but I am still alive and kicking.

The survival rate for Stage 4 is less than 8%, but with radiation, chemotherapy, the chances are better than nothing. He can apply for disability and get automatically approved for it because of the compassionate allowance listings, medicaid, and what ever else he can find that will help him out. When I was going through treatment, I was drawing $800 a month in short term disability, but I never lost hope and always had my bills covered.

There is more out there then what people think is available to help. All you have to do is the research.

That is not 100% true for the are those company that do pay some % of medic bill if the gap like this and the have as benefit just like some company have something call health & dental benefit for there employees and i would be very very surprise if  Blizz did not have some similar

I really hope that people donates to help this guy win the battle against cancer.

Having said that, why  Blizzard executives won't  make a private donations to help one of its employee?

WoW made Billion of dollars in the last 10 years, surely 25k is not going to bankrupt them...............

Ugh ....just ugh.


Blizzard didnt get to keep that money. That money went to Vivendi.


Pretty much everyone in this thread is under the mistaken impression that Blizzard is rolling in cash when they are not.

Just because WoW makes a lot of money does not mean Blizzard is rich. Vivendi is rich and Activision Blizzard is rich, not Blizzard.


Its like people have no idea what a subsidiary, parent company or a holding company is.

I was thinking the same thing, but I didn't know a nice way to put it. Blizzard is rolling in the dough. Why wouldn't they be the first ones to donate all of it. That's literally 1,667 subscriptions in one month which is a whopping 0.000238% of their total subscription base, and that's not even accurate I used only 1,667 / 7,000,000 to get this number!!!!!!!! Point being it's less than pocket change. If they don't assist with at least the 25 grand I will never buy a Blizzard product again.

Just my thougts, too. I'm not sure I would really not buy any more products or sub from them ... but would really leave very bad taste in my mouth. 

 

But who deserves really boycott is insurance company that I'm sure tricket him as many before. No wondering most of lawyers are employeed by insurance companies. Before to prepare all papers to sign with main intent how to suck their money into company ... then when unfortunate one need it badly to survive... how to kill him without being accused of murder by always finding some paragraph well hidden in insurance policy.

I hope Ron beats the cancer, and gets well. I hope Blizzard does the right thing and pays for his treatment fully, to show that they aren't 100% money whores.

 

Get better dude, I have lost so many to cancer it broke my heart on Christmas Eve to read this article, and my initial tyranny reaction was not forgiving.

 

 

 

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.
