Ben's Game

When nine year-old Ben Duskin was in the hospital battling leukemia, his mother described how his treatment worked like it was a video game - with the good guys fighting the evil cancer cells. This gave Ben the idea to make his mom's idea reality!

The Making of Ben's Game

Ben asked the Make-a-Wish Foundation to help make his dream come true. The peeps at Make-a-Wish make dreams come true for kids with life threatening illnesses. They told Eric Johnson, a senior software engineer at LucasArts, about the wish and he offered to help. Ben got his wish and the game was finished in just a few months. Ben's now in remission (his symptoms are lessening) and he's feeling a lot better.

    hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.

    If most people from this generation don't want to be friends with you, you are doing something right.
