Hello Bombers,

This is the hardest post I've ever had to make. A lot of you know my brother, Sparky_Buzzsaw. He was a former moderator, and one of the great contributors to this site as a moderator and forum content.

Well, yesterday I got a call from my parents that my best friend and brother was on his way to the town I live in on a ambulance (He lives in a very small town). Well they brought him in for possible heart problems.

At this point, we don't know what happened. The doctors have told us there is a problem with his heart, but it may have been a heart attack or possibly a blood clot. They have told us that one side of his heart is not acting right and I need your thoughts and I need your prayers please. A Cardiologist is coming in sometime soon to do a scan on his body to see what is going on.

Sparky (Cameron) is conscious and responsive which is a great sign, but he needs a pump me up. So I am heading back to the hospital and thought a great thing would be to read some positive responses to him from the Giant Bomb Squad!

If this offends the moderators or the site, I am very sorry. But he needs to hear people support him.

Please, give me some stuff to read to my brother to cheer him up!

I wish him the absolute best. His name was probably the first I started really recognizing in chats, because he's always a joy to see around. Hoping to see him again soon!

Oh gosh, that must've been a terrible phone call to receive. Stay strong duders, both to you and Sparky. I know he'll come through the other end even stronger than before! Wishing a speedy recovery so we can see you back around soon.

Having been a member on the site since the beginning, I've seen plenty of @sparky_buzzsaw's contributions to our community. Man. Sucks to hear about his health problems. Hope you pull through duder and get on the mend soon.

The only heart condition anyone should have is if Ezio walks up and is like "uh, uh, uh, uh"

Get well mate.

Hate to hear this. I was just chatting with Sparky in GB Infinite chat a few days ago, and he's always a pleasure to interact with.

Stay strong and get well, Sparky.

If you were going to make an all-time Giant Bomb Hall of Fame for forum posters, Sparky Buzzsaw would be a unanimous first ballot inductee.

That is absolutely awful. Sparky is wonderful and I always have fun chatting about books with him online through Twitter or whatever!

Please let him know that he is in my thoughts and I hope he is going to get well soon. Also, please let your family know that this community is filled with people that love and appreciate Cameron and hope that he, and your family, will be doing much better in the near future, if not immediately. Good luck, best wishes!
