September: A month of solidarity.

Recommended Posts

I like the idea of paying for it and putting money to fight cancer maybe if we all make a vote of some sort or bring it to the DEVs they might work on it with us.

 

(And yes it some reposted it reposed my lat reply lol)

DE, my hat's off to you for wanting to spread awareness about Leukemia and for looking after one of your own with this Light The Night Walk that some of your employees will be participating in. To the team itself, I hope you succeed in reaching your goal and then some. It's wonderful to see you all coming together to support someone in a time of dire need. If I could, I'd send you a check for $10k right now. I know all too well how costly cancer treatment can be...

I have only one small request. Please let us have the option of keeping the ribbons you sent out, so that those that wish to do so can continue to show support and promote awareness or at least honor someone that they may of have lost..

For the rest of the player-base, I ask that you please refrain from using the word "cancer" lightly in conversation. Cancer, in all its myriad forms and types, is an awful thing to be afflicted with and it can extract a massive emotional toll on the patient's friends and family as well...

To those of you affected either directly or indirectly from any form of cancer, I wish for nothing but complete remission and a speedy recovery...

Thank you.

thank you for doing this de! about three years ago my grandfather passed away from cancer after fifteen hard years of fighting it. not long ago another family member lost the fight and it wasnt fun to be around. im thankful to see stuff like this in regards to people spreading awareness for leukemia and cancerous sicknesses in general, and to see it coming from digital extremes in the form that it took really takes the cake for me. thanks a lot space fam! 

 

loving everything that you do.

While not a leukemia survivor, I am a cancer survivor, and I fully support this effort.

Keep on keepin' on.

Please consider making us able to buy a permanent version of this.

I like the design, and would not hesitate in buying it if i had the option. I would also like to support it year round. Even if it was a lone subscription item. I've personally known too many who have suffered leukemia.
I love to show support for the rest of my life to pursuits to cure.

Why not after September the Ribbon turns Pink, b/c Breast Cancer awareness?

Thats a solid Idea!

I have not seen this level of support from a game developer before, my mother has had cancer and survived it thankfully but I know not everyone does, thank you for your support and awareness, I too would like to have the option to keep the ribbon, God bless you and everyone dealing with any of these ailments, wherever you may be.

I know that this is a limited time event, but why is the ribbon limited time too? It doesn't look ridiculous like other timed exclusive gears, it has meanings, and it looks good too. Not only that, but it also to remind us of people who suffer from Leukemia. There's basically no good reason reason not to make the ribbon a permanent addition.

Could also keep these year round as there are several months in the entire year that have a colored ribbon, except for August and December for some reason from my brief google search Choose Hope. So that those Tenno that want to show Solidarity year round and those whom they lost to specific cancers, I lost my Grandmother to colon cancer (67) and my cousin to metastasized breast cancer (31)

No Thanks. I'll pass. Leukemia is already a known disease with enough awareness of how debilitating and deadly it is. 

I'd rather support a disease that almost no one gives a S**t about like Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Does it kill? Not as much as Cancer, but it is just as much debilitating if not more so.

Here's an article: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2016/apr/04/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-cfs-taken-seriously

Very nice. Good Job DE. I also know the pain of cancer. Because of cancer I lost the ability to be a father. And for a man that is a fate worse than death. But that was 25 years ago. Keep up the good work.

Can we please keep this permanently?  I have a grandmother who died from cancer who was really close to me.  I say we keep it in the game and allow the awareness to stay.  I'd personally only use this piece if its kept in.  From someone affected by it to another, please keep this in.  It would mean a lot to a lot of people and awareness for something this important shouldn't be limited to a single month.  You guys are amazing so could you do us one more favor?

Let's prove how truly fantastic our community is.  The devs give us the tools.  Lets use them and show how much we care and want it to stay!

So is there gonna be a official warframe BOINC group ? to share unused computing power for medical research for example :o Warframe runs on a toaster so using the computing power of your system you don't use to play warframe to work on cancer would me pretty awesome :O 

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/

not everyone can afford to donate or work in STEM fields but even your pc can help fight cancer while your doing your taxes or play games :3
