This is Travis' uncle Craig. I will not give my last name for it is irresponsible and idiotic to do so on an Internet posting. Please be advised that NOT all of Travis' family smokes. For one, his dad never has and never will. Also, please understand that only a young person in this world with very little experience in life would even think that all cancers are caused by smoking. The type of cancer that my nephew has is in no way linked to smoking or second hand smoke. To accuse his family of causing such a devastating thing is hateful. To tell the whole world how much a family makes, the fact that they may have a special needs child and might be having trouble financially, shows great ignorance. This is information that is no-body's business. A simple asking of prayer and thought for a fellow paintballer would have sufficed. Laying blame on others while glorifying yourself is juvenile. What kind of hateful fantasy are you living in?
You have stuck a dagger in the heart of this family. For whatever reason this makes you feel good, I hope your satisfied. If you think this will drive a wedge between your girlfriend and her family, your guna have to try harder than that.
For all you readers, please do keep Travis in your thoughts. His family is taking VERY good care of him. The original posting was written by someone who really needs to keep his mouth shut and realize his short time on this planet has not endowed him with more knowledge than our whole family put together.
hey man, i dont know why this has all started, but my only intent was to give travis as much support as possible. yea, i dont know every detail, but he and sylvia both have told me the basics. if i didnt care about travis severely, i wouldnt have done this for him. i look at travis as literally, the older brother i never got a chance to meet due to my moms miscarriage. i do know that carcinoma is related to cigarettes. i feel bad enough myself just by smoking in front of him and i feel like i had a part in his health. i hate thinking that. but, look at all of people that are giving the highest respect and as much support as possible for him. it looks to me that theres been some pretty positive results from this. yea, sylvia talked to me about this and i apologize for some things that i disclosed, but i do not apologize for the topic. even the director, most famous person in the paintball industry, has contacted him. last i talked to travis, he seemed pretty happy and upbeat about everything and this was after i posted this information. i apologize for anything misconstrued, but at the same time, im proud of myself about the outcome of random people giving him support. ive done something good, maybe things shouldnt have been said, but that good thing, travis will always remember. i had no intention in offending anybody with this and i cant believe something started out of it.
