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.
