Wurm Online "Cancer Sucks" Fundraiser for Tich

Recommended Posts

Cancer Sucks

According to statistics, approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. When you think about the size of your family, the statistics catch up to you, and suddenly cancer becomes something you experience first-hand.

 

I am no stranger to cancer. When I was 7-years old my oldest sister, Tammy, died from Leukemia. Then thirty years later, I got the diagnosis of a malignant tumor in my abdomen. Thanks to good doctors and a bit of luck, I am now a 10-year survivor of Stage 3 Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma. 

 

We recently lost Tich, one of the developers of Wurm Online, to cancer. Tich designed many of the features we know and love, including Bridges, Highways and Bees. Her death touches all of us in the Wurm Online universe.

 

And so we honor Tich's memory with a this fundraiser in hopes that science can help find cures for a disease that affects too many.  We have partnered with the Cancer Research Institute, which has a system of personal fundraisers:

The NEXA clan is planning a series of auctions on the WTA forum to benefit this fundraiser. Winners of auctions will be able pay for their item(s) with a donation to this fundraiser as a form of payment. (They take credit cards.) We'll take silvers and PayPal too, with all proceeds going to the fundraiser. These auctions will be linked here and will start soon.

 

 

Sincerely,

Jackjones
