Somebody Needs You

Iran is full of nice young bloggers and many of these young guys and girl are famous for their criticism of the Islamic regime and their absolute defiance in the face of this religious dictatorship. One of these brave bloggers is "Arash Sigarchi". Mr. Sigarchi is now serving jail time for bogus charges such as insulting the leader of the regime and espionage for the United States... etc. His charges are laughable and he doesn't deserve this situation at all. find more here

He also lost his brother in a car accident last year while serving his 14 yr long jail time. His brother died in a terrible accident enroute to prison where Arash was being held.

Unofortunately, I found out that our brave blogger Arash is now diagnosed with Cancer and he is in dire need of assistance. By assistance, I mean any help he can get. Your help can, mostly, be in terms of money donation for his treatment which is expensive inside of Iran. You can also give medical advice, find a doctor or a hospital that would be willing to take him in for medical treatments and other assistance.

You can donate money using Paypal button in the right sidebar of this weblog. Please donate money and any amount you contribute is very much appreciated. I know that his treatment costs around 30,000 US dollars and we may never reach that point but we sure can help as much as possible. Any thing is appreciated.

I understand that some have trouble finding the paypal button, please refresh the page once more and you can find it right behind the Statcounter and Blogspot buttons in middle of the sidebar (Under the archive section)


The above image shows the location of the button on the side bar of this blog. Click on it for enlargement.

Remember some one really needs your help and your contribution makes a big difference.

Please feel free to republish this post any where you wish and spread the word if you may.

Thanks for your understanding!

Shabnam jan, It's nothing I am doing and I guess it is really shameful that I can't do more.

با کمال تاسف از ابتلای اين بلاگنويس مبارز به بيماری سرطان آگاه شدم. هر چند انسانهای جوان نيز به سرطان مبتلا می شوند، ولی در جمهوری فاشيستی اسلامی نبايد اين احتمال را از نظر دور داشت که اين جوان مبارز در دوران اسارت خود در زندانهای جمهوری اسلامی در معرض اشعه های سرطانزا قرار گرفته است. اين اعمال وحشيانه سالها در بلوک شرق عليه مخالفان اجرا می شد و هيچ بعيد نيست که فلشيستهای شيعی اين عمل خبيث را از کمونيستها ياد گرفته باشند.ـ

A big hug for everybody diagnosed with cancer, just like I am. I don't know how life must be in prison, yet I do know what life with cancer is, so I cannot imagine those 2 together...

درود وینی عـزیز
مـن این دکـمه "پی پال" رو پیدا نـمیکـنم
مـن کـورم یا این دکـمه سر جاش نیست ؟؟

Winston said...

نه عزیز جان شما سالمی این بلاگ من ایراد داره

اگر به عکس وسط پست دقت کنی جاشو میتونی پیدا کنی

Michael said...

NETeller is another online payment service, like pay pal. It's at www.neteller.com

I ask, because I already have an acct there, and for a variety of reasons do not want to open others.

Winston said...

Mike, you dont need an account there on paypal
