Providing video games

as coping mechanism and escape for kids with cancer

Helping Kids Cope With Cancer



Princess Party

For the girls...BIG and small that are the perfect combination of fierce cancer fighting warrior yet deserving of being a princess this party is for them!

Inspired by childhood cancer survivor, Alex Craven and his love of video games, Alex's Arcade provides video games to children with cancer to be used as an escape and coping mechanism.

A Way To Cope

Why Video Games?

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.

Over the past 6 years they have shown me how much our lives are affected by cancer. Family, friends, coworkers, and strangers that I've met over the years... we all have the same connection in life, all because of 1 word, Cancer. 
My life has become surrounded by helping people with cancer, from our organization Alex's Arcade-Helping Kids Cope With Cancer to my wife being an infusion nurse at an area hospital. Truth of the matter is...As much as I hate cancer, I love it too... 
I hate how it makes us all have to fight it, yet I love that it brings us all together to fight. 
We may not win every battle, yet I haven't known a fighter that has lost.
Keep fighting the good fight!
James Craven
