The month of October is a month worth remembering.....

Post by Paxination on 10/24/2014, 10:21 pm

As another year comes closer to an end, I cant help but think how my life would be if it wasnt for this great community!

My 2 year anniversary was on Oct 6th this month, and I cant even believe I forgot about it! At any rate, its unreal how this community has changed my life in the past 2 years.

I would have never guessed I would have become the Owner of this great community 2 years ago. Not in a million years. Hell it was by chance that I even fount it. I bought minecraft for the pc on a whim. I had been playing it religiously on the xbox for some time before that. I started a small private server for me and my friend that I played on the xbox with. Then his life got turned upside down and was unable to play any more. I then decided to try a real server. I started going through the server listings on the apple app. And just the name Oasis-SMP caught my eye. And then I read the description from Ariley92 and I was hooked. I got on, and my life changed from that moment on.

For those that are not aware, my wife was diagnosed with borderline stage 2 breast cancer in mid june, 2013. She has/had the worst form of it. What they called triple negative. Basically there is no known source of this type of breast cancer and there is only a one time chance in getting rid of it. So its a hit it with all we got type thing. We never thought in a million years that she would get breast cancer. I know everyone says this, but in our case it was different. This is the SECOND terminally Ill disease she was diagnosed with in her lifetime. She was diagnosed with Huntington's Chorea. Its a horrible disease for which there is no cure. And at the most, they can briefly cure the side effects until the disease has progressed to the point that any form of medicine has no effect. My mother-in-law lives in a rest home because of this disease. The only certain part about this disease is that it will take her life some time in the next 20 years. So finding out that she had breast cancer ON TOP OF her HD, was just a slap in the face. It was like, DAMNIT! CANT WIN FOR LOSING! But my wife has proven her self stronger than she lets on.

If it wasnt for this wonderful community, me and my family wouldnt have made it during my wifes breast cancer treatment. She was out of work for a hair short of a year. She was unable to work and my income was the only source of money we had. As soon as it all started, I started cutting back on expenses. I disconnected our cable tv (kept internet as its cheap and we could use netflix), reduced our car insurance premiums, and cut out other things that were not needed and things that we learned to live with out. If it wasnt for the support of this community (monetary or otherwise), we would have not even made it. Thank you Oasis!

Now this is a great story and all, but I did save the best part for last. This month marks my wifes first year of being cancer free! As far as being cured, your not considered cured until after 5 years of no signs of cancer. We are as of now, 1/5th of the way there! And it was the communities support that helped us get there!

I love you guys and will never forget the support you guys gave us.

This was beautiful to read Pax. I've heard from a lot of people who have said similar things about this server and the people within it. I can only say thank you for sharing this you know, and it means quite a lot to me as well to be able to read it. It shows sincerity, something I haven't seen a lot of in the last few years except from a select few people. It's an honor to know you, both as an Owner and as a friend. Thank you for sharing this Pax, and Congrats on two years going strong!

Here's to many, many more! 

Take care.

The server and her community wouldn't be the same without you at my side, Norm! Here's to two years under your belt, and to many more years to come. I'm happy for you and everything we've been able to do for you as support.

That. Was touching. Now I realize how much Oasis has helped all of us deep inside. The moments we were sad, the moments we needed friends, they were all cured with the love of each of us. Even though it is just through monitor and monitor, but still, we connect(pun). It's unbelievable, so let's just try to keep it that way. <3

Happy anniversary, Pax! Im glad you had all of us to go through these ordeals with!

Also, maybe we should have an Oasis awareness campaign for Huntingtons Disease, as we've done with cancer? Show some support, cha know?

Pax that is great news man, praying that she makes the next 4/5 without any signs and symtoms.  I lost my father and grandfather to cancer so I know how devistating it can be.  BUT ON A BRIGHTER note my mother in law is a breast cancer surviver(over 12 yrs. cancer free) and my wife had a bout with a form of skin cancer almost four years ago and knock on wood it has not returned after surgery to remove the affected area!

I feel your pain. I know what it is like to see your wife going through something so horrible and feeling like there isn't much you can do. I am glad you have found comfort. Good luck and thank you for sharing.

I wish you and your wife the very best Pax. It's really good to hear that she is doing good! My grandmother had cancer in her intestines, but she too, is now for half a year free from cancer. This was my first of hopefully many years on Oasis, and i'm really glad that i got to know this community. I wish you, your wife and the rest of oasis another year full of friendship, companionship and awesome builds in minecraft.

YAY LEE!! 
I still remember the sinking feeling reading your post last October.
Since then I have gotten to talk to you both so much more.
Lee is gonna keep kicking Cancers a**. 


I Enjoy hanging out with both of you so much, 
I couldn't imagine Oasis without you Paxy.
You've been one of my best friends on this server. 
I look forward to talking to you all the time. 
Just remember
" ONE OF US" <3




So many warm feelings for you and yours, 
I wish you all the very best. 
Be sure to send Lee my love, or at least put her on the mic so I can!

that is like, the best explanation of oasis ever
And Paxination, i believe, if it weren' for you and Mike, we wouldn't have Oasis-SMP anymore, and if not for you, we wouldn't have FTB either. SO, congrass on 2 years, and many, MANY, more to come.
