I've pledged to play games and raise funds for kids at my local children's hospital.
I participate in Extra Life every year because the Children's Miracle Network saved the lives of both my nephews.
When Hunter was born, his heart was struggling to beat properly and his lungs were underdeveloped. A representative from CMN would talk to the 12-year old Aunt Blair at the time, who was spending every day in the hospital with her sister, and reassure her that Hunter will be OK and grow perfectly healthy. They were right. Hunter is currently a little nerdy kid who is addicted to Monster Trucks and Fortnite. He loves Sly Cooper and when I told him I won 4th place against 300 people at the ELU tournament, he so nicely responded with, "You didn't get 1st?" Love you, bubs.
Lucas was born prematurely. He was incredibly weak and fragile after birth, and had to stay in the hospital a few months after, with regular check ups throughout his life. Lucas was born after Hunter, so I already had full trust and support for the folks in the hospital, and had no worries at all. Lucas is also a little, or not so little since he's almost taller than I am!, gamer as well, who makes me laugh with his funny faces and is a martial arts master. Love you, Lukie Pie
I play because I want to see so many other kids grow up safe, healthy, and into little nerds like my nephews did. If I can help by doing what I love best? It's a win in my book.
