For all of you hating on me everyday... here is what I bought for my father with the money. I bought him all the needed meds, I bought him CBD oil, and bought him a wheelchair and I also bought him a hospital bed. All of this costed me around $6500 . All donations are for me now pic.twitter.com/Jv0zjTvZ5z— zyl (@zylTV_) July 11, 2019

Please stop sending me hate. I don’t deserve this. I stream 10+ hours a day for him. Everything is now covered and donations now go to me for whatever I want/ and still saving some for emergencies if ever needed. Thank you everyone who believes me âÂÂ¤ï¸ÂÂ
"His cancer spread to his lungs and liver which brought him to stage 4 cancer. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy," the kid wrote in Twitch chat. "These are the circumstances that the doctors gave him: No chemo one-year death, three years chemo 20 per cent live. Please donate anything you possibly can. All money will go towards funding his medication. Much love from me and all of my family members." His family also seems to be proud of his efforts, with his ill father even appearing in one of his streams. His father explained that he's been left incredibly weak and is bed-bound most days, struggling to even walk.
