Dear Friends and Family,

I'm on a mission to save kids and I need your help. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.


Our daughter Olivia was born on August 26, 2014, prematurely at 24 weeks. She was in the NICU at Lurie for 9 weeks, where she received amazing care. Their wonderful staff was attentive, caring, and supportive during the most difficult time in our life. Olivia passed away on Halloween, just a few days after my first Extra Life marathon.

Thanks to your generosity, I've helped raise $13,830 for Lurie through Extra Life over the past five years. Let's continue to add to that this year in Olivia's honor. As usual, I'll be streaming the entire day on Twitch.

Extra Life has raised more than $50 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to Lurie Children's Hospital.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids.  Please make a safe, easy donation online today.  Click the "Donate" button on this page to get started.  Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
