Hello,

I will be holding a game day in order to raise money for Extra Life. Extra Life is an organization that raises money for Children's Miracle Network. It works like a walk-a-thon but instead of people raising money by getting money donated per miles walk, they raise money by playing games. This is typically video games but I will be doin' it for the tabletop.

I have had a rare congenital heart disease since birth and have developed other medical issues due to it. All of my medical treatment has been at Children's Hospital Boston, (a partner with Children's Miracle Network), at which I have spent weeks at a time. I remember on my longest stay I was show the game room/lounge for kids and it made the stay all the more tolerable. I want to help.

Children's Miracle Network raises money for family's with children with server medical issues in order to research cures, provide awareness and in same cases pay for treatment.

UNFORTUNATELY, MY RESERVATION FOR THE HALL HAS BEEN LOST AND THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED, I AM VERY SORRY. IF YOU ARE IN THE BOSTON AREA AND WOULD LIKE I WILL BE HAVING A GAME DAY AT MY HOUSE YOU ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND. PLEASE GEEKMAIL ME FOR MORE DETAILS.

I have included links below to Extra Life's web site below.

This Charity means so much to me because I have been there. I have been the sick kid, not knowing what was going to happen next and listening to my parents tell me everything was going to be "ok" but seeing the questioning in their eyes as well. These families need all the help they can get.
