Same. When my dad found out he had cancer he was still healthy. A few months later he was miserable in bed and died.

Where does he live? Im sure some hospital around him performs Y90 Sirsphere treatments for metastatic liver cancer. It works pretty well as long as he doesn't have metastasis anywhere else.

I messaged him on youtube but idk if he will see it. If anyone knows his contact information let him know to look into it, or check him youtube account

His facebook and twitter are best, however right now it's going to be flooded with messages.

Sad day for the gaming community. I have noted that in his last videos his voice sounds a little bit weaker. I hope he wins the fight.

Edit: word.

Copied from the CynicalBrit subreddit:

Radiation Therapy Physicist here, on lunch break. If there are metastases in the liver this is not a good scenario. Colon cancer typically doesn't invade the liver directly. This means that the mets in the liver are hematological in origin...meaning the cancer got into his blood and landed in his liver. Unfortunately this means that just because more distal mets haven't been seen on the CT yet they could still be there, just too small to see. At this point they will be treating this prinarily with chemo because of its widespread effectiveness to all areas of the body. If any of these mets become large enough to start causing symptoms then they will likely employ localized radiation treatments to shrink down those lesions. Lesions unfortunately can pop up really any where. Primary targets for hematologic spread are highly vascular organs like the lung or brain. Again, depending on how the body handles it any new lesions can be treated with chemo/radiation as these become symptomatic.

Edit: To answer your question more directly, no one is a statistic until they become one. His story will go as long as the gifts he was born with will take him and there is little way to determine exactly how long he will live. Unfortunately though the statistics that we do have are not in favor of a long life span.

There still is a chance he survives the cancer. A combination of chemo and possibly local radiation therapy.

Quick question to a person who hasn't had someone close to me affected by cancer: how exactly does radiation help? I thought we were supposed to avoid radiation because it was thought to CAUSE cancer

Plus any medical advancements that happen soon. There's all kinds of promising things on the horizon, 2-4 years out. I'm sure as long as he is, he'll last longer then that.

They're blocking it over on r/games, they are too partisan to come together for this? TB doesn't deserve this.

What's even more pathetic is they sent a junior mod to try and run damage control over at the cynical Brit sub.

I don't think that's going to happen. I wish it did, I like totalbiscuit a lot. He's one of the first gaming personalities I really got in to and I'll miss him greatly, but it's most likely his diet that have him the cancer to begin with. It looks like it's too late to fix decades worth of bad eating.

Edit: sorry for upsetting you, down voater. We are all upset now. I hope John proves me wrong, I really do.

Cancer is random. There will be people who eat healthy that will contract it early in life, and you will get those who are unhealthy who will never get it.

It really isn't possible to say with any certainty at all what caused it. Could have been totally random.

The older I get, the more and more people I see are getting cancer, and it's pretty scary to think about the possibility of being the next victim.

Goddamn that's depressing. He's only 31. Did he say anything about the early diagnosis? Why did he get it so young, and was there anything he could've done?

He's that young?! Holy shit, I thought he was 37~42 years old....I guess that's the chemo and stress taking it's toll. And now he's gotta go through even more chemo just to hang on for another few years....damn.

I found that it's the webcam lighting. The few pictures of him elsewhere makes him look much younger.

There is realistically very little chance they'll ever know what caused it. Unless it's something obvious like "you've been smoking since you were 12 and now you have lung cancer", there is usually no single cause that can be pinpointed. Most of the time it just seems to happen, and sometimes it just happens when you're very young.

Did he say that he saw early signs of something wrong but ignored them, or am I thinking of someone else? I thought colon cancer can be caught early, though I don't think any thirty year olds are suggested to go get rectal exams.
