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.

​We LOVE receiving gaming donations!!

We have a use for any and all used gaming system donations. All we ask that they are in working condition so that they can be donated to kids, families, and other nonprofit organizations that help kids cope with childhood cancer.

We’ll be sending our most recent gaming donation to Little Mary’s Hospitality House in Wellston, MI as a gift for their gaming room.
Little Mary’s Hospitality House offers a free vacation to families with children who are battling life-threatening or serious illnesses. Families who have lost a child through illness and terminal adults are also welcome.

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.


We are so proud of our co-founder, Nancy Craven!

To say that nursing is in her blood is an understatement.

She gives compassionate care as a nurse in the infusion center at Henry Ford Cottage Hospital.Getting to know her patients on a personal level is one of Nancy's strong points as a nurse.

Continuing to care for her patients in and out of the office by coordinating holiday dinners and offering different types of assistance options to help ease the burden of treatments and and after care.

Because of her hard work, commitment to nursing, helping her patients to the best of her ability, and being the co-founder of Alex's Arcade-Helping Kids Cope With Cancer, she was awarded the 2018 Employee of the Year at Henry Ford Cottage Hospital in Grosse Pointe. 

Way to Go Nancy!!

The kind of day that changes the life for a cancer patient.
Financial toxicity affects every family affected by cancer.
From the cost of treatments to missing work to being able to afford the essentials for every day living.
Meet Tiesse, she’s a mom, a wife , she’s also a stage 4 cancer patient.
We learned about her missing her treatments due to lack of reliable transportation.!

We couldn’t let that happen!

With the help of Children’s Outreach and Street Ministry a non profit in Garden City, MI And Masters Auto Sales in Roseville,MI we were able to gift Tiesse a reliable car to get back and forth to treatments, appointments, and most importantly a family vehicle.
Our communities are amazing!
The outpouring of support to help a family to show that they aren’t alone when it comes to fighting cancer leaves us in awe
