Welcome To Alex's Arcade
Together we can all help kids cope with cancer
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.
Alex's Arcade is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides video games as a coping mechanism to children diagnosed with cancer and advocates for childhood cancer awareness.
A NEW WAY TO COPE
When A Family Loses a Child To Cancer...
On Wednesday January 26th, 2017 our board president met with a Mother, Regina Dixon and her family that recently lost their daughter to DIPG...Here is their story...
If you want to see what fear is....Talk to a parent that has a child with cancer.
If you want to know what pain is...Talk to a parent that lost a child to cancer.
Being a parent of a child that had cancer, I can tell you there is no greater fear.

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.
Why Video Games?
Our 1st bowling fundraiser in 2016 was so much fun...We could hardly wait to do it again this year!
Come out to Shelby Lanes Saturday March 11th, 2017...And Roll Over Childhood Cancer!
This is very family friendly event for everyone to enjoy!
This is one of our major fundraisers of the year and all the proceeds help kids and families cope with cancer.

A Small But Mighty Fighter...
Meet Dylan...At 4 years old he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, High Risk/Stage 4 Cancer.
We learned about Dylan and his fight from the LifeCare organization in New York. As we learned more and more about Dylan his fight inspired us more and more.
Dylan had to undergo inpatient treatment recently for 5 weeks, including during the holidays...
To All Of Our Supporters,
Alex’s Arcade would like to thank you for donating your time, efforts, monetarily, video games, and attending our events throughout 2016. It’s because of your generosity that we are able to help so many children and families cope with cancer. Each and every one of you took up our motto “ No child fights cancer alone, No family fights cancer alone...No one fights cancer alone”, and because of that we have been able to help 5 families directly to cope with cancer and donate more gaming systems to the oncology department at Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
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, advocating for childhood cancer awareness, or fulfill 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.
