Hi everyone, I'm Nick "LS" De Cesare. I'm a pro-gamer who has been living in South Korea for the last two years. I've played SC2, and LoL, and now I play Hearthstone. I'm a producer over at http://ihearthu.com and I also stream hearthstone almost 10-12hours a day.
Recently I've been diagnosed with advanced stage Keratoconus in both eyes. Fearing for my eyesight, but not really knowing what else to do, I'm turning to the public, community, and fans to try to look for help. I'm not necessarily looking to hit the goal 100%, in fact, I don't expect to. Instead I hope people might possibly help me in getting somewhat closer to it, so it is not as burdensome as it currently is.
On Sunday, October 27th 2013 KST I will be starting a two part 12hour streaming session event.
Throughout the event I will be trying to raise money to be able to obtain the procedure needed to stop the disease in both of my eyes from progressing further. Also during the event I will be giving away 25 hearthstone beta-keys on behalf of http://ihearthu.com .
You can find out more about me, message me personally, or tweet at me at the following links:
I'm not looking to pocket any money obtained. Any excess will go into a funded showmatch or event for SC2 or HS and/or I will refund anyone who donates past the exceeding amount. The goal is to obtain 4,500,000 KRW. 4,000,000 of it going towards the procedure, and 500,000 going towards travel from Busan to Seoul/sleeping/etc. (I will have to make the trip twice).
I'll be posting more information about everything as the time draws closer (still about 24hrs out).
Again, if you dislike me, or hate me from whatever I may have done, then I ask you to just please ignore this. If anyone has questions or whatever else I'll answer everything I can.
Thanks so much for reading.
