Please read Dayv's post in the random thoughts thread(and the posts that come after it):

http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Random-Thoughts/post/453624/#TopicPost453624

It is obvious that Dayv needs help.   What do to for him, I don't know.  There has been talk about setting of a fund which we could all contribute to.   I'm not really sure how to go about setting this up.   If anyone could help with this, please post them here.   If anyone has any other ideas that that we or he could do to help, please post them here. 

thankyou in advance for your help and ideas,

the Warbler.

edit: Dayv's paypal address is [snipped] you can contribute to him there.  

EDIT: PLEASE READ THE LATEST POSTS IN THIS THREAD.  THERE HAS BEEN AN ACCUSATION MADE THAT DAYV HAS NOT BEEN TRUTHFUL ABOUT HIS SITUATION.  WE ARE STILL TRYING TO FIND OUT THE TRUTH.

6 JAN 2011 - Please see this post for information regarding proof of Dayv's illness. - Jay

I'd gladly send some money there if something was set up.

Dayv here is a site, it might help you. I will research as much as I can to find a place to get medical help. Right now I only have $3 (not kidding), but I have tenacity.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

Wow.  I don't know what to say.  This shit would never happen with a single-payer health insurance system.  Too bad our government is so fucked we can't get something as simple and obvious as that to pass.

I wish I could help, Dayv - unfortunately I'm struggling to pay my own bills myself, so there's little I can do.  Hell, I can't even say I'll pray for you since I'm an atheist.

I'm sure there are many members on here who can offer more help than I can.  All I can say is good luck, and I sincerely hope things start to turn around for you.

Us OT.com members gotta look out for each other. I don't have children, but I know I wouldn't have made it without my parents. I want you to raise your kids and be there for them.

When I read that post yesterday, I didn't know what to say, I was upset by this terrible news. The idea that a person so young could get such a horrible desease, with no way of paying for treatment, having to leave his kids, just left me speechless.

I'm sorry for I have nothing to contribute, but hope, for you, PSYCHO_DAYV,

don't give up yet!

even if you don't have money,  if someone could just help setup something to which people could contribute, that would good.  

if anyone can offer help in getting something setup, they can either post here or feel free to PM me. 

again if you wish to talk about the politics of the situation, the political thread is the place to do it.

I agree with you CA, but this:

is a political statement.  I think Warb just wants to keep any political discussion out of this thread, regardless of how you feel about it.  And I agree with him.

Ah, good point.  I shouldn't have phrased my initial statement that way.

My apologies, Warb.

Alright, for the past few weeks I've been viewing/participating in an on-line reality experiement controltv.com. Throughout, I've interacted with the show. The show brought in some people with media contants willing to talk with fans. I've tweeted with Rocco from FashionNewsLive, Darwyn from Kurt the Cyber guy, and the Control TV crew. I have no clue if it'll help at all but, I'm going to tweet to them to help in this situation. I'll also tweet Seth Green as he was a producer and, made appearances on the show. I'll also use the #SaveDAYV in my tweets in order to have a topic thing in my tweets(not exactly sure what to call it). Personally I can't contribute more as I don't have much money either.


To all those who followed @thetwist111 link here! PSYCHO_DAYV is a user on originaltrilogy.com. His chosen posting style is to post in ALL CAPS. It doesn't mean his entire post is a yell, it's just a style of his. Recently he posted the following messages:

I'M DYING OF LUNG CANCER NOW. I CAN'T AFFORD TO GET TREATMENT. LIFE HAS TURNED TO SHITE, AND I'M PRETTY MUCH READY TO LEAVE THIS WORLD.


PSYCHO_DAYV said:

THE FUNNY THING IS THAT I'VE NEVER SMOKED A CIGARETTE. I'VE NEVER HAD THE DESIRE TO DO SO. NOW I'M HERE DYING FROM LUNG CANCER. IRONY'S A BITCH, HUH?


PSYCHO_DAYV said:


I CAN'T GET ON MEDICAID, BECAUSE MY CHILDREN DON'T LIVE WITH ME. I'M WORKING AS MANY HOURS AS I PHYSICALLY CAN, BUT I'M SCRAPING JUST TO PAY MY BILLS. I JUST CAN'T AFFORD TO GET TREATMENT. IF I HAD THE MONEY/MEANS THAN I WOULD. IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING IS STUCK IN A CATCH 22. JUST THE FIRST TREATMENT IS GOING TO COST A LITTLE OVER $1,000.00.



OH, AND DID I MENTION THAT I DON'T HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE? A REALLY BIG "FUCK YOU" TO ALL WHO OPPOSED OBAMA'S UNIVERSAL HEALTH PLAN. IF IT HAD PASSED THEN I COULD'VE RECEIVED THE MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT I NEED ALMOST FREE. INSTEAD MY CHILDREN GET TO GROW UP WITHOUT THEIR DADDY.



I REALLY WANTED TO SEE MY CHILDREN GROW UP AND HAVE CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN. I STILL HAVE SO MANY THINGS THAT I NEED TO TEACH THEM. I WANTED TO BE THERE FOR THEM ANYTIME THEY WOULD NEED ME. NONE OF THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW.


Please try to help in any way possible that you can. Thank you.

Whoa, and to think i have problems.....

So sorry to hear this news DAVY. Its chilled me to the bone, again.

My mother was treated for cirvic cancer over 8 years ago, but she has recovered (to an extent) with a lot of ripping out of body parts.

But the operative word there is 'treated'. She got an all clear letter a few months ago on her follow-up examination. 

My mother is strong of mind and never gave into her illness, and thus, she is still with me today (daspite suffering from chronic asthma throughout her life, and now angina aswell), so dont just give in to what youve been told DAVY.

My thoughs are with you, and your family.

Who is the most foolish, the fool, or the fool which follows it?

Also fought in the clown wars, many years ago…and lost…miserably…

Dayv,

You'll probably want to prepare the documentation for proof that you'll need if this thing goes any futher.  There are enough scam artists out there that people grow very weary of this kind of thing on the internet.  Whatever proof you can put out there will probably increase your results a hundredfold.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

Mine are too.  I wish you all the best, PSYCHO_DAYV.

I too agree with what xhonzi posted.  It is sound common sense. 

I hadn't seen PSYCHO_DAYV's post in the other thread, so I had no idea about this.  Thanks for the heads up, Warb.

I don't know how much you believe in holistic medicine and self-healing but you might want to look into it.  There's a well known story out there about Dirk Benedict - the original Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica - curing his prostate cancer by changing his diet.  The theory is that different types of cancer "feed" on different nutrients, enzymes and such found in different parts of your bloodstream and organs.  By changing your diet, you change the balance and availability of those elements and effectively "starve" the cancer away.

Will it work for you?  Who knows, but it's better than doing nothing.
