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.

    Is there someone you can tell? Like a parent or some other adult? What do you expect us to do?

    What's the difference between emo and goth? :confused I wouldn't know I'm awful when it comes to stereotypes although mean girls and the DUFF have been very educational.  My style is meeeeee :love the style that always changes. But I have always been an outcast, so I'd rather just be a loner or something.

    Sixteen and Twenty-one? Ah nah. This isn't okay at all. I think your parents or you should tell her parents. This is the only way.

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.
