Alex's Arcade-Helping Kids Cope With Cancer

Alex's Arcade is here to help kids cope with cancer, whether it's donating gaming systems to Children's Hospital, fundraising for our cause, bringing awareness to childhood cancer, or fulfilling a dream for a family fighting cancer.

The feeling of helping others, making a difference in the lives of children, or being the reason that child or family can cope with cancer a little easier...Is like no other.

Alex's Arcade has donated many video game systems from Xbox to Sony Playstation, and Nintendo Wii to the infusion center of oncology department in Children's Hospital of Michigan since 2014.

New in 2016...The Alex's Arcade Dream Experience started.

It's a program that helps families escape cancer together in an experience that they only dreamed was possible.

Not only can video games provide an escape from reality for children diagnosed with cancer, they also reduce the stress of being in the hospital. By providing video games to the oncology departments of children's hospital , the games are used as a coping mechanism to help reduce the stress of being in the hospital for treatments, extended stays, or just a visit.

As you can see, you can donate a video game, make a monetary donation, or donate your time...Every donation is equally valuable.

Help kids cope with cancer,

Help a family cope with cancer,

No child fights alone, 

No family fights alone,

No One Fights Alone!

Why Video games?

Alex's Arcade is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, making your donations tax deductible.

Inspired by their son Alex and the way he coped with his cancer diagnosis, James and Nancy Craven Arcade started Alex's Arcade to help more children cope with their diagnosis of cancer, by providing video games as an escape from the reality of cancer and to be used as a coping mechanism during hospital stays and doctor visits.
