Alright, ninjas. This ones gonna be a hard one to post. Recently our homie Vampiro has been going through some very difficult times. I was on the Museum a couple of days ago and noticed a ninja that posted a video from Vampiro on his public Facebook page. The caption they wrote simply said, “He needs your support.”
I watched the video and it was Vampiro in his car, crying, lost and alone with no one to talk to. As hard as he tries to be strong it’s extremely difficult. He suffers from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson and chronic arthritis throughout his entire body, and he’s desperately trying to keep it together. He states his meds turn him into a zombie but when he doesn’t take them…
He admits he’s embarrassed about posting the video. He’s not looking for sympathy but wants us to know he’s a fighter and he is going to beat this.
The main message he wants anyone to take away from the video is to never give up. Keep goin’ forward and eventually, you’ll be where you’re supposed to be.
Check out that video below.
This is what mental health looks like.But I am a tough spirit and will beat this.No sympathy … just understand those around you need love , that’s it

The next evening Vamp posted another video to update all of us on how he’s doing. He stated that in the previous video he was having a bit of a panic attack but that’s what happens when you don’t listen to your doctors and you don’t take your meds. It was a good lesson for him but what really astounded him was the outpour of support he received! He woke that morning to more than 800 messages from ninjas offering him words of love and encouragement!
Check out that video below.
Darkness in my car but major light in my life thanks too you!

He’s definitely doin’ a lot better as you can see!
In light of everything he’s recently been going through, he’s started a GoFundMe page called “Vampiro Vs. Metal Health”
Because of these injuries and stigmas, he’s not able to do what he loves most and because of that, he hasn’t had an income in a year. He’s asking for financial help so he can receive stem cell replacement therapy in Columbia at the end of the year. Once he’s better and able to start bringing in a steady income, he’s going to pay it back by donating a portion of his earnings to those in need of financial aid.
You can check out that GoFundMe page right now by CLICKING HERE. If any of those ninjas that sent him the messages of support had a couple of extra bucks to kick in too that would help Vampiro immensely.
To Vampiro: If you’re reading this, I know what it’s like feeling like a zombie from taking meds, brother, but I hope you keep listening to those who care about you most.
I wish you all the best. You’ll pull through this, man! You will!
You are a strong motherfucker!
