Help Brandon Delacruz

It’s beautifull how some people have so much strength to face adversities on their lifes. This is the case of Brandon Delacruz, who suffers from “Cystic Fibrosis, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system.” I cannot imagine how hard the life of this young man was hard but it’s known that “through playing Silent Hill 2 he has been inspired to not only be a better person but has also given him solace during his frequent hospital stays.”

He first knew Brandon thanks to Silent Hill: Historical Society and its“Descent into the Otherworld- A Spotlight On The Silent Hill fandom”. The story of this young man marked us since that day, so his recent communication turned to be very sad and shocking. (Read it here)

I wasn’t quite sure how to say it and when to say it, but I figure now is a good time to say it. In mid-July my doctor told me I have 6 months to a year left to live. So I’ve been trying to do all of the fun or important things I want to do in my life. So as soon as my wife and I are settled into an afforded duplex/apartment anyone who wishes to see me in case I pass should come visit me. We could catch up with each other and meet my beautiful wife.

From Brandon’s facebook on 10/6/2012 –

Monica Taylor Horgan ( Original Voice actress for Mary/Maria from Silent Hill 2) has already started working on a way to help this awesome Silent Hill fan, Brandon Delacruz.

Richardg234 rants about the Silent Hill fandom

Lately there have been alot of controversy around the latest Twin Perfect’s videos and how the Silent Hill fandom behaves, always tending to create sides inside the fandom itself. Those who have different opinions and defend them like it was a life or death situation. I got my convictions and I have no problem on making them clear to whoever wants to hear them, however respect is something EXTREMMELY important between everyone, not only in this case but in everything in our lifes. What’s the point of taking parts in a war between points of view? Shouldn’t it be much better if we could stop for a second and give a chance to everyone else who has a different vision on the things? I fu**ing love to hear new theories, new ideas, new opinions.

You know what? My favourite Silent Hill game is 4 The Room and I pretty liked Homecoming…

Well, Richardg234 recently posted a video where he talks about this same situation and what is happening to the Silent Hill fandom. Listen to it and try to take some ideas from there, “we” really should start acting a bit differently, as we all have something in common – we love Silent Hill
