Helping Kids Cope With Cancer



Up Coming Events

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 7 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!

Join our Team

It takes a special kind of kid to donate their video games so that the can help another kid cope with cancer.
That’s exactly what a girl from San Diego did, donating her Nintendo Mario DS along with 16 games to along with it.
That’s being completely selfless and compassionate of others in their time of need.
That’s what this world needs more of...We can all learn to be more compassionate.

Disc Replay Help Supports Kids Cope With Cancer

Saturday May 5th we had the opportunity to work with the organization childhood cancer organization A Mission of Love. 

A Mission of Love presents kids with the "Best Day at Best Buy. It can be a shopping spree or handpicked gifts specifically for a child in a hospital undergoing  treatment.

Alex's Arcade Foundation was honored to work with them when we presented Andrew with his "Best Day" surprise.

This is Andrew's 2nd bout with cancer at just 9 years old.

Andrew was surprised with a Super Mario Bros.Nintendo DS,, A Mission Love Best Buy Gift Card, and Best Buy threw in their employee discount to help the shopping spree go further.

This wasn't just a Best Day for Andrew, but for us at Alex's Arcade too, to be able to work with another amazing organization to help such a deserving young man.

As a nonprofit childhood cancer awareness organization, the Alex’s Arcade Foundation helps children cope with the diagnosis of cancer by providing an escape from the reality of childhood cancer to the world of video games.
