Default GamerDad - Broken Heart - PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

September 14th, 2007, 12:13
From GamerDad.com
On Saturday September 1st, Andrew Bub - the GamerDad, and my husband - suffered a heart attack. An anterior wall Myocardial Infarction to be exact. On Sunday the 2nd, he had an additional MI and on Labor Day he endured a Quadruple Bypass operation, which saved his life. He's been in the hospital ever since and dearly misses his children, his website, and all of you - his readers. Here's how you can help.
Please follow the link and read the article, and if you are able to help in any way thanks in advance.
More information.

Unfortunately I'm not able to help financially, but I wish him all the best and hope everything will be ok.

I don't think I might be able to help him, but I can try to forward this message.

Oh man, I'm so sorry! I hope he pulls through and is all right.. Unfortunately I'm horribly behind in my own bills and other debts with nary a penny to spare these days (my computer is 4 years old too! ).
The best I can do is wish Andrew and his family the best of fortunes to them.

You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.

Dang that’s tough, I wish GamerDad swiftest recovery and best wishes.

I hope he has a good diet of vegetable, fruits and doesn't smoke it makes all the difference in the world for recovery and prevention.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

This is really a life altering event, and very hard on everyone involved, especially kids. Living at the hospital, the uncertainty and the waiting, putting your hope and trust in doctors and nurses, are all very difficult things to endure. I hope this request will help generate enough money to alleviate that additional worry on top of everything else.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

I have been able to help a little financially, but I'll see if I can spread this around to the other sites on the net.

Nice of you, Jemy. I have mailed GamespyIGN and Gamespot on this as well as mailed someone at 2k (bioshock) on this. I have also sent a few dollars his way

I find that gamerdad.com is a very worthy -ehm- cause? or site? to support

Loads of prayers can only help. This is a hard thing at any age but with small children it always makes it worse for the family to cope.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

I wish Andrew and his family speedy recovery…

The gamerdad & his website is one of the things we in the gaming community needs, I think. We need someone who is going to stick up for the thousands of ordinary people playing games as well as some like andrew bub, gamerdad, to explain to people that videogames aren't causing children to be violent or going out murdering someone after they have played (violent) games. He seems to be one of coolest voices of reason in this regard.

Please send your support his way, either it be in your thoughts or by doing something else.
