Child Stream Fortnite 10 hours for day to pay his father’s cancer treatment
A young streamer from Canada has for the past 5 days been streaming Fortnite for 10 hours straight in a bid to raise funds for the treatment of his father, who has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Rectal Cancer.
zyITV said on Twitch that if his dad did not undergo Chemotherapy, he would die within a year and the donations would help him survive for at least 3 years with a 20 percent probability of beating it.
“My father was diagnosed with stage 3 rectum cancer on Septemer 14, 2018. His cancer spread to his lungs and liver which brought him to stage 4 cancer. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy. These are the circumstances that the doctors gave him: No chemo 1 year death, 3 years chemo 20% live. Please !donate anything you possibly can. All money will go towards funding his medication. Much love from me and all of my family members.”
His dad explained in a livestream video:
“It’s very hard. It gives you so much trouble that you cannot walk. Some days, I feel I have to lay down for days in bed. I cannot move. But I have to fight.”
More than $13,000 Canadian dollars had been donated, exceeded his goal of $5,000.
“$5000 will go immediately to pay for his fathers care. $3000 will be put into an ‘in case of emergency’ fund. Anything leftover will be put towards improving the stream.”
OMG EVERYONE! I can’t even thank anyone from this stream with words. I’m truly speechless. You guys changed my and my dad’s life forever and me and my dad will remember this my whole life. Thanks to 1/2
