Our fundraiser is officially over!
We hope to have David online today so he can read some of the great comments and messages you guys wrote for his Birthday!
We won the first battle for David but now it's up to him to stay strong and do his best to recover. The odds are still against him as some of you know but we have faith everything will work out. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers,
We will continue to post updates on all of our sites!
We have a few last minute prizes to give away!
We still have 2 more to give out!
I will be contacting these winners this weekend for details.
I was just given permission to post a picture that David took a little while back. Now again this is something that makes him very uncomfortable and we want everyone to realize that.
It got a lot worse than it looks but now finally, everything is looking better.
It's not that we want to keep any of this from you at all but we have to respect his and his family's wishes.
We have a lot more photos and also some video footage that we hope to include in the video we are making. This is something David wants to be made for everyone to see. Including those that are suffering from the same thing and need some encouragement.
Some of you say that David would have to be incredibly lucky to survive this over and over again...
He has fought so incredibly hard to survive and his fight is still not over. Luck or whatever you want to call it.. I'm glad it's on our side..
I've also got word that David will be reading the comments you post about his Artwork and about your orders next week.
Also next week is his Birthday. This is an incredibly huge deal and we would love if you could leave him a comment when we post something.
P.S. Again if you feel you can help us in anyway involving our customer service or management skills please contact us at info@ThatVigilante.com Advice in the subject line.
We can sure use some help and are willing to learn all we can.
(EARLY UPDATE - WAS SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 30th)
I know I sound like a broken record apologizing for the delays over and over again but I really am sorry.
This has been such a rough trip since day 1 and I can understand why there were issues with the first fundraiser David started when he first got sick.
No matter what, I am giving you my word that I am working on fixing all of these issue we've been having and we will be starting to ship out all of our orders next week. (April 4th 2014)
Speaking of old fundraiser- I want to make sure those of you that David missed last time are taken care of as well.
We have shirts and larger items we will be sending out together for those of you that have been waiting far too long. If you know anyone that got missed out on last time please have them contact us at:
I encourage those of you that receive your orders to post pictures on our Facebook page:
We want everyone to share what they got and what they think.
David has been doing his best to rest and recover. We've finally been able to get him the rest of the help he needs. We did have an emergency over the past months but he's doing better now. His incision from his surgery got infected and he's been looking after that very carefully. It caused him a lot of pain and it's had us very worried. We've been doing everything we can for him so he wouldn't have to stress or worry about anything.
We understand the frustration of being left in the dark about everything. We don't want you to feel like we forgot about you. We also don't want you to think we are trying to scam anyone because we are only about helping David and nothing else.
The help he's received has been so incredible and it has kept him with us for longer than we thought we had him for.
He's celebrating his Birthday next week and we want to thank each and everyone of you who made this possible.
We also have some news that a few of you have already done your research and found out. David and his Fiance were planning on getting married later this year.
This was planned last year but unfortunately it doesn't look like it's in the cards for them right now. Possibly next year when he's back on his feet!
His fiance and family have been an incredible help doing everything they can to be there close by his side and make sure he's taken care of. I'm happy we could be there for them as well. His family has given everything they can and just being there for him has been such a tremendous help.
Being fully honest we have done a very poor job with all of this. We are amateurs when it comes to all of this and again not to sound like a broken record but I am sincerely sorry for any troubles we have caused you.
We want to thank everyone that participated in our raffle! We also want to thank those of you who donated all of our great prizes!
We will be contacting our winners tomorrow to get all of their shipping info! We will be shipping prizes out to them with our orders next week! (April 4th 2014)
If you see this list and you are one of our winners please feel free to contact us at info@ThatVigilante.com with the subject: Winner Raffle and please leave your contact info.
We've been holding off on posting anymore pictures because it does make David feel very uncomfortable right now. We are still planning to make a video about David's journey to show everyone what he's been going through. Also I am still wanting to post David's Art he's been working on for everyone to see. I will be posting them early next week and I encourage everyone to comment and tell David what you think. I will ask permission first about posting any pictures of David or his work before I do.
We can also use some help from those of you that are familiar with customer service and with skills in creating and managing a website and YouTube Page. As you can tell we definitely need help..
We are hoping that soon David will be able to post an update himself on how everything is going. Again he's been spending as much time as he can with family and doing everything possible to relax and recover. He's been able to get on once and a while but we don't want him stressing about anything in his condition. Possibly when we post his Artwork we can help him log on to read your comments.
We got a notice from one of David's cousins that his Playstation account is being hammered with messages and requests. Please refrain from contacting unless it's a "get well message". I will make sure David's cousin forwards those messages directly to him. He doesn't need anymore stress right now.
Again those that are worried about their orders I promise you that I will be taking care of this and making sure everyone is left satisfied. Not only the ones from our current fundraiser but also everyone that has had an issue with David or his shop.
I take full responsibility for the trouble we've been having and I will not stop till everything is ok. If you feel you can help me do a better job and have tips or anything that can help me please feel free to contact me at info@ThatVigilante.com - "Advice" in the subject line. Any help is deeply appreciated..
As of right now we are ending this fundraiser but we will be leaving this page open so we can update everyone on how things are going. We will mainly be posting our updates to our Facebook page and Twitter but will still be sharing the posts here.
Thank you for your help and God Bless everyone of you that helped.
P.S. David and his family deserve privacy right now so please respect that. Their focus is helping him relax, recover and not worry or stress about anything.
We will be posting a new update very soon! Sorry for the delay.
We have some Big News!
Thanks for your patience.
Please continue to donate what you can!
We're working on something big right now to help raise the rest of our goal!
We'll be posting another update very soon.
Update: It has come to our attention that there are a few people running a contest on NeoGAF to help raise money towards David's treatment.

New Deadline: Sunday - Feb 16th, 2014.

We are almost there and we can use a little more help. We've got less than a week to make this happen!

Fundraiser Rewards: I will be posting an update soon for those of you that ordered one or more of our products as your donation towards our fundraiser.
This update will contain shipping info and also info on what else we've been working on.
The update will be posted not only here but also on our website as well as Facebook and Twitter.
We thank you again for your help!
Update! David had his Surgery and it was a success! We want to thank each and every one of you that helped out because without you, none of this would have been possible!
He is going to be starting his treatments (Chemo-Radiation) soon which we pray will help beat this once and for all.
With this type of cancer most of you know it doesn't have a great survival rate but we believe that as strong as David is he can beat the odds!
For those that have gone through this type of ordeal before or know someone who's gone or currently going through it. We want you to know that you shouldn't be afraid to ask for help. There are people out there that care and want to help. As proof of how this fundraiser has helped David, you can get the same help by just asking for it.
I was asked by David's family to leave the fundraiser open so he can continue getting the help he needs to cover any medical costs that are left or upcoming. Again we ask for you to help anyway you can even if it's just sharing our page with anyone you know. Donate what you can! Right now anything helps! The less he has to worry about, the easier his recovery will be.
Over the next few months I will continue to update you frequently on how David is doing and I will also be sharing videos on David's Youtube page showing his journey. Once they are posted please feel free to leave comments and share David's story!
Again I want to thank you for your help and generosity!
(Please share this page so David can continue getting the help he needs to cover any medical costs that are left or upcoming) - Donate what you can! Anything helps!
Our fundraiser is ending tomorrow!
Let everyone know!
For those still wanting to help out, you still have time!
We can do this!
Help give the best gift of all!
Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays!
Update: David's surgery has been scheduled!! We're going to be ending the fundraiser on Christmas Day! More news to come!
Please continue to share this page with anyone that can help us reach our goal!
Sorry for not posting any updates in a while. Everything has been pretty hectic lately with trying to get David the help he needs....
We're waiting on more info from his doctors on when they will be able to get him into surgery. The bad thing is the longer we wait the worse he gets...
We'll be updating everyone as soon as we hear any good news and also we want to let everyone know to keep doing everything possibly to get the word out about our cause.
It's incredible how much we've been able to raise in such a small amount of time and it wouldn't have been possible without all of your help!
For those of us that celebrate Christmas it's just around the corner and what's a better gift to give then the gift of life. We're hopeful that we can reach the rest of our goal so that we can make sure David beats this once and for all and has the help he needs while recovering.
Anything can help right now..
Share this with the world!
Real quick, I just wanted to give a huge thanks to everyone from the NeoGAF community that have been doing everything possible to help David and our cause!
We also want to thank and mention someone who has gone above and beyond to help David during his fight!
You have been such an incredible help and we wouldn't have gotten this far without you!
There are a few others we'd like to thank but we've been asked to keep them anonymous.
Thanks again to everyone for your help! I will be posting another update very soon covering all the details of David's journey!
Please continue to let everyone know how close we are to our goal and how they can help!
ThatVigilante.com is back online! Our site crashed a few days ago and we've been non stop working on fixing the problem.
We might have missed out on some donations through the website so please help get the word out that we're back online and hopefully we can get the rest of the help we need!
I know this is a bit late but for those of you that celebrated Thanksgiving - I hope you had a wonderful day with your families and those close to you.
I myself am incredibly thankful for all of your help towards David's cause.
As a small thank you from one of our friends, we were given a few sponsored gifts to give out!
Starting tomorrow I will be tweeting out these gifts that will be given out the same day.
For starters we have a few 1 year subscription cards to Playstation Plus as well as a few bigger gifts to send out.
We're still in this till we reach our goal and again we are grateful to have you on our side in this fight!
We're still in this fight until our goal is reached!
I'm working on a plan to reach a bigger audience but it's taking longer than expected. I'll give you more details as soon as I can but for now please do what you can to get the word out to those that can help.
If you have any ideas on how to help, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at JacksonJTay@gmail.com
Let's help David win this fight!

The funds we've been able to raise are enough to get David the surgery he needs! We will be updating everyone soon with more details as they come in but the fight is not over yet!
The remaining amount we need to reach our goal is very important. It will cover all of David's after care needs such as follow-up appointments, medication, his nutritional needs as well as any treatments he still might need in the future.
We've decided to leave the fundraiser open until we're able to reach our goal! Again for those that are not able to help with money, you can really help with your words. Get this message out to all of those that haven't heard about our cause yet and let's get this goal reached!

Message from David!
( I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for every type of support I've received. I could have never done this without your friendship, love and support and just knowing you have my back is helping me fight harder than ever.
The pain I'm going through has increased but I'm hanging in there. I'm resting as much as I can in-between what I need to take care of. I've been able to see my family with the break I've had from work and I'm cherishing every second.
I'm going to keep this short, but before I go I just want to say that my work was not only inspired by the games we all love but also by the idea of following your dreams and being able to do what you love for a living. To wake up everyday and feel a sense of excitement and being able to share what you create with everyone. It's a truly remarkable feeling.
I want to keep that dream alive.
Thank you again so very much!
David Vigil )
Thanks for the help everyone! Let's keep it up!
We've got till the end of this Thursday! Help get the word out everyone!
We've seen an unbelievable/incredible rise in donations in the last 24 hours thanks to your help and support!
By seeing that we've decided that we're going to push back the deadline a bit in a desperate attempt of hoping to raise the target amount.
Our new deadline is November 21st, which gives us 3 more days to get David the help he needs!
Please continue doing what you can to help!
Do you have any experience with YouTube and Twitch?
I'm looking for help with making our Youtube Channel the best that it can be! I'm also looking for some help on livestreaming through Twitch!
Our new and improved Youtube Channel will feature David, his work and weekly vlogs showing his journey. He will also be doing some livestreaming on Twitch throughout his recovery for all those that want to drop by and hang out with him.
If you think you can help, please contact me at:
info@ThatVigilante.com or JacksonJTay@gmail.com
Thanks for the support!
We're almost at the half way mark of our goal thanks to all of your generous support!
If any of you have questions about David, his work or anything at all please contact me at:
info@ThatVigilante.com or JacksonJTay@gmail.com
Thanks again everyone, lets keep it up!
We have passed 10k! Thank you for your continued support! Keep getting the word out to all those that can help!

Thank you for your support!

I will manually add all the funds earned to our Overall Goal.
It has been a long and difficult journey for David. It was around this time last year that he had to fight for his life and it is my deepest regret to inform all of you that his cancer has spread and his condition has gotten much worse. It wasn't till recently that they found out it has spread to his pancreas. I read that unfortunately, many pancreatic cancer patients will not experience any noticeable issues until their condition becomes advanced. As of right now they have diagnosed him with Stage 2 Pancreatic Cancer. Even with what he's been through this was still a total shock. What was suppose to be a simple checkup turned out to be something much worse. He has not talked about this publicly because he was hoping it was something that can be taken care of before it got worse. To be fully honest I was instructed not to post anything but it breaks my heart to see both him and his family suffering through this again and as a friend and someone that cares about him I cannot stand by and do nothing.
The severity of his cancer has made obtaining the funds in the time he needs seem impossible. Before he found out about his current condition we were working on a much smaller and reasonable goal. Knowing what we do now we have added up the cost of his surgery, medication, living expenses and after care and the total is outrageous. The current goal is 47,000
This campaign ends when we reach our goal!
I know from seeing that price and deadline it seems impossible but I know in my heart that we can make this happen. Even if you can't help financially you can still help by getting the word out. Let's spread this message like a wildfire!
He needs our help more then ever right now and we don't have a lot of time to make this happen.
I know from his past fundraiser there was some issues but this time David has more people standing by him to help. I will personally be posting updates frequently. No one will be left in the dark. UPDATE:
I just want to encourage everyone that you can still help by buying merchandise from our store and not just donating. We have a ton of stock for each product that is ready for our shipment in January and all the money earned will go directly to funding David's treatment. I also want to thank those of you that have already helped and remind those that can't help financially, you can still help by getting the word out.
David is one of us! A gamer, friend and to some of us family. I am hoping and praying that with your help we can make the impossible possible. HELP HIM WIN THIS FIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!Website: http://thatvigilante.com/Facebook: https://facebook.com/ThatVigilanteTwitter: https://twitter.com/ThatVigilanteThose who have joined our fight!
