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.

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
