Look at TV. It has two basic business models:

1.) "Free." as in advertiser supported
2.) "Paywalled," as in pay per view
3.) Hybrid of subscription with advertisements. (most common here in US; subscribe to cable or other and suffer through ads))

Still, that's the content provider's choice and if enough sites take that approach, we'll be disabling Ad Block.

If they are traveling to/from treatments and have to take time off work with reduced or no pay, give to them directly.

Always give directly.

yw and stuff.
