YouTuber Dream is donating over $20k to cancer research after fellow Minecraft content creator Technoblade announced that he’s been diagnosed with cancer.
On August 27, YouTuber Technoblade uploaded a video titled ‘where I’ve been,’ in which he explained that he’s been diagnosed with cancer after noticing pain and swelling in his arm.
Friends and fans were devastated by the news, and quickly flooded both the comment section of the video and Techno’s social media with messages of love and support.
Naturally, the Minecraft creator community came out in full force to support their friend, and Dream even announced that he would be donating $1 for every coin his team earned in the Minecraft Championship to cancer research.
