Ugh...dying....

My lung cancer's getting worse...it's at the point where breathing hurts. I'm starting a kind of Immunotherapy Thursday that's supposed to teach my cells to fight the cancer itself..but I don't really have too much faith in it. I don't think it'll be the miracle cure I need. I asked my oncologist today how long she thinks I have left and she said about three months... So that sucks pretty hard... Osteosarcoma is gay..

At least I'll get to play Smash Bros. Brawl for a little while...

(A pic of me when I went to Hawaii and yes, I only have one arm)

Ugh...dying....

Lung cancer? At your age? Well that sucks, hope you get better though, just don't lose hope yet.

TheGimpsta responds:

Yea, I've had cancer since I was 15 (around 5 years)

That is very bad T_T I will always remember you and your great music though. I really hope it will heal. Hopefully the release date of brawl wont be extended so you can see and play brawl too. It probably wont be extended though, and good luck.

TheGimpsta responds:

Thanks =) I hope it'll heal too.

Have you tried alternative cures from other countries? America keeps you sick for as long as it can, it makes the disease "liveable" for as long as possible to milk from your insurance. but other countries have remedies that aren't showcased in america for obvious reasons....I'd try to look around for some on google.

I feel sorry for you.

Have fun with brawl, at least.

TheGimpsta responds:

Thanks, but pleeeease don't feel sorry for me. I'm just another human being in life.

That sucks... So bad, beyond what I can put in words. I can only say that I hope things change for you, and that the immunotherapy helps, or that something changes and the cancer goes into remission.

You should try going to church. Really, if you find the right church, they can help you. I have seen some miracles happen too. That's what you should be doing right now.

Hope you get better soon

TheGimpsta responds:

Hope so too...I'm mostly concerned about the pain part...not so much the death.

Personally just thinking positive about yourself and believing that you'll get better, despite whatever people tell you is the best way to get better. I've heard miracles happen for people by just by thinking they will get better over and over. Try it.

TheGimpsta responds:

Yea I now. But I usualy write down my frustrations to make me feel a little better.
just need to vent sometimes.

Don't give up! If you don't believe you will be healed, you won't be. You're too young to die, keep fighting!

you see its because of the government why this is happening you would not have lung cancer and you would probably have two arms if hilary clinton wasnt running for president first she causes phsyco goldfish to stap his brother and now this we must prevent her from becoming president by any means necessary p.s. nice shades

Tell the people at Nintendo that the prolonged usage of SSBM has ruined your arm. Then ask for a free copy of Brawl. I'm sure you'll get one. :)

It's sad you're dying. but the weird thing is that you don't seem scared at all.. why?

TheGimpsta responds:

I'm a chistian and believe heaven is my real home. The world is full of pain, so I'm happy that one day I won't have this pain anymore.

Hope you stop dying soon. Oh! Before you die, make sure to vote in my Jesus VS Gay Phazon Phone guy thing. You'd probably wanna vote for Jesus because if you died he'd beat yo ass for not voting for him.
