Scott DW is a filmmaker, songwriter, and friend.

But more importantly he's a loving husband and father to a wonderful wife, Becca, and two little studs.


And for the majority of his life he's been battling Lyme disease, which was left undiagnoised for years and then caused various complications to his health. Hundreds of thousands of people have Lyme disease but the government doesn't recognize it making it a very difficult disease to fight.


For 17 years his disease was left undiagnosed, which has cause his condition to worsen.

Scott is currently fighting a life threatening disease. With this comes astronomical medical expenses and each day becomes increasingly harder for Scott to continue making content. If you want to help Scott get better and enjoy more of his films and music, please consider donating to the campaign.

He's put up an online store to sell all his audio and film equpiment to pay for medical expenses, but that's a sacrifice that us in the UTuber Community did not want him to do.

We've put this GoFundMe campaign together to #SAVEOURSCOTT We are raising funds for a treatment in Mexico that could save his life.

We will keep him and his family in our prayers. Show your love and support by donating, watching his videos, purchasing his merch, and sending your love his way on social media.


SHARE this campaign with your friends and family and let's #SAVEOURSCOTT

*NOTE money will be going to Heather Winn, She is Scott's sister and is working directly with him while this campaign is active.

Three treatment days down! Scott had his first round of plasmaphareses with this machine. It takes a liter of his dirty toxin filled plasma out (seen in the bottom right bag) and puts in nice clean plasma (top bag) over a four hour period. He's also done lots of ozone, homeopathetic IVs, blue Gatorade looking methylene IVs, chelation IVs (to get out the heavy metal poisoning), and acupuncture so far. All to help detox the junk out. Scott's detox pathways are genetically mutated so getting the toxins out is near impossible hence the intense detox solutions in the agenda while here. He's been having some new symptoms but inflammation seems to be going down a little each day. I'd say that's a pretty good sign! We begin the hefty blood transfusions tomorrow which is the next big treatment step. Thank you thank you for the continued prayers and thoughts!!! -Becca

Hi everyone, this is Scott's mom. I just wanted to update you on what's happening. Scott leaves for Mexico for his first round of treatments this Sunday, March 5.
We are so very grateful for all of the amazing donations that have been made so far.
I know the goal was set at $25,000 and we're almost there but I do encourage anyone and everyone to donate more if possible - or for more people to donate. Medical expenses will end up in the 100's of thousands of dollars!
If each of Scott's fans donated just one dollar the results would be phenomenal - so please continue to share this campaign.
Also, on Sunday, as Scott and his wife fly to Mexico our family and many friends will be praying and fasting for him.
This is an invitation to anyone of any faith or denomination or however you believe to join our family on Sunday, wherever you are, in a day of prayer, fasting, watching his videos, listening to his music, purchasing his merchandise, etc. I'm just hoping that as Scott's family and friends we can unite in sending out our love and support however we feel we can best do this!
If you believe in the power of prayer please pray for him, for his body to tolerate treatments, for his strength to sustain him, for his doctors to know the best course to help him begin to heal and for his treatments to WORK! This is a long, hard battle! Thank you! We are so grateful for your love and support!

I hope you are getting well back on your feet, Scott. Your videos and music are an inspiration and your willingness to allow us to see behind the scenes footage is much appreciated. I only recently discovered your videos and only just today saw the video about Lymes disease in my YouTube feed. I am in awe of most of the videos you have managed to create and the amazing talent you have had in them. I hope you get to make much more music and many more videos while living a good life. Greetings and best wishes from Denmark.

Great guy. Even while dealing with his own health concerns he took the time to offer me support. I know Scott will beat Lyme. He will inspire other's to do the same!
