World Of Warcraft Is Actually Saving The Life Of This Cancer Patient (Video)
Andie Bolt is a filmmaker and comedienne whose mother, Terry, was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors/carcinoids back in 2010.
Luckily, Terry has made great progress since her diagnosis. But, she wouldn’t have been able to cope with her illness without the help of World of Warcraft.
Terry played the game while dealing with cancer and it really made a positive impact on her life.
Soon after Terry began gaming, Andie realized there was a whole community of gamers using the games as a coping mechanism for their major life problems.
That’s when Andie had the idea to chronicle this community’s story in a documentary.
The documentary is now looking for funding on Kickstarter. It has been shot but needs funds so it can be edited, finished and properly advertised.
Its stretch goal is $150,000, but Andie is hoping to make at least $45,000 through the crowdfunding platform.
The doc also features a cameo from Chris Hardwick — he originally gave Andie the idea to turn her mom’s story into a film.
It is tentatively titled “WoW MoM: A Documentary About Cancer & Gaming.”
