Hello everybody reading this and thank you for taking the time to come and read this campaign, it means the world to me. My name is Andrew and I was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley of northern California. My life has been filled with ups and downs, the Downs primarily coming from having been diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy a form of muscular dystrophy which cruelly took away my ability to walk and in later years my ability to use my manual wheelchair ... Now it has started to take away the ability to go outside and do events with my friends and family. Throughout the years while my health was in decline I have always gone and relied heavily on the gaming community for solace and support. Today is no different as I make this plea to everyone reading this. With the fund's I plan to purchase computer upgrades including accessibility aid's like an TrackIR SmartNav4 head tracking mouse w/ sip/puff pressure switch for clicking which would give me the ability to use my mouse with simple head movements along with right/left clicking the mouse. Also I hope to be able to get the next generation of console's that I could also stream via my account. This ask's me how soon I will need the funds an I would love to say immediatly though in my mind that sounds seriously tactless, basically I would appreciate the ability to get back to gaming immediately of coarse though however long it takes I will still be the same amount of grateful so I'll just say as soon as it is possible ... times are hard for everybody these day's. I am finding it hard to put into words how much this would mean to me as computers an gaming is a large mahority of my life, I don't get to go out hardly these day's due to the progression of my SMA (disease) so my world, or maybe I should say world's, are contained in the realms of gaming as are my friends. How can one put a level on how much friendships are, to me they have been priceless... If I could reach the goal my thankfulness would be so infinite, especially as I am feeling bad even creating this page however I've been told that reaching out isn't a bad thing; we all need help every now and then. I do plan to decorate my computer's tower with the name of every donor so that daily I will be humbled as I wake an start my day. If you have read this far thank you eternally your care means the world to me an it will never be forgotten! One love to all. -Andrew (EternalQuasar) Sertich
