TotalBiscuit, the famous YouTuber game critic, has just announced on Twitter that he has been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. It’s heartbreaking to hear that a YouTuber and fellow gamer has been diagnosed with such a horrible illness.
Well, I don’t know if there is really a right way to tell people this, so I guess here goes. The CT did not (cont) http://t.co/2rAg7x9OFI

Totalbiscuit, real name John Bain, is most known on YouTube for being a hard game critic, but very honest. His most popular rant had to do with YouTube taking his “Day One: Garry’s Incident” video down because the developer didn’t like his review. He is also known for his professional casting for games like StarCraft 2 and PlanetSide 2. Bain is also part of the Polaris gaming community, which helps advertise YouTubers videos who are part of the group.
Last year, Bain had vlogged about being diagnosed with bowel cancer. He began receiving chemotherapy, and his doctor said that it was a success. Now the YouTuber is once again fighting for his life as he undergoes more treatments of chemo. The life expectancy for people diagnosed with liver cancer is 2 to 3 years. But Bain isn’t giving up. He said:
“I intend to beat it for as long as possible.”
Well, I think I speak for everyone when I say that we will be thinking of you Bain, and we wish you well. Fight hard.
