Gerard Way saved my life. So I want to celebrate his. Well, I guess writing a post on his former band's website isn't really celebrating, but it's the best I can do right now.

Meeting Gerard is the number one thing in my bucket list. If I met him I would probably cry, because he is the only reason I am still here today. And I would have so much to say, and thank him for, but I will probably never get the chance, so I'll write it here.

The first thing I would say is thank you. Thank you for saving my life. I now have the opportunity to live it. Thank you for being such an amazing role model. Thank you for helping so many kids like me continue to live. Thank you for forming the band, because you brought attention to so many things, so many important things, through your music. And thank you for surviving yourself. Thank you for holding on through the pain and addiction. You are so strong.

I am so grateful to you. You are my hero. When I feel like I don't want to be here anymore, I think about you, and how you survived. And that inspires me. It helps me so much more than you could ever imagine. I hope other people can find this kind of inspiration somewhere too. I hope they can find someone as great as you to keep them going. They deserve it.

Happy Birthday Gerard. And thank you.
