DJ Vadim VS The Big C

"this is what an angel looks like, if u are ever lucky enough to meet one..." - DJ Vadim

A brave young man who just happens to be an internationally acclaimed DJ fights an imposing adversary: Cancer. His is not simply a story about that: it's a story about the love of his life and how she helped him through, and continues the vigil at his side...
"The truth is if they had "discovered" the cancer in April, it would've been smaller, and
there would've been a lot of different types of treatments, treatments less dangerous,
treatments where i could've kept my eye, regained my vision and prevented the cancer
to spread. I wouldn't even have had to have surgery!!! And by now i would've been
completely recovered and prolly back on the road. But instead the tumor had had months
to grow. and become such a large tumor the only option left was a dangerous operation..."
[Read the entire post on Vadim's MySpace blog] Vadim includes a playlist of some of the music he's listening to while recovering.

It is so true: most of us don't halfway appreciate our lives and our loved ones until bad things happen. I urge you to think of Vadim and Yarah the very next time you have the opportunity to help another person or show them a little extra love or give 'em back a sincere thank-you when they do something nice for you!

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
