Like A Hard Level in a Video Game
Having a muscle disease isn’t easy.
It’s like a hard level in a video game, but you never get a chance to try again.
For fifteen years, it’s been hell having this neuromuscular disease. It’s a parasite. Gaming takes away the hell I’ve been living.
Gaming is something that changes me from the outside in. Gaming takes me to a different place, a different mindset.
I love gaming and being able to get the tools for the right job is an absolute honor and a privilege.
Thank you AbleGamers Charity and Family, Friends and Duchenne!
