Blizzard & Make-A-Wish Team Up to Fulfill Dream

In partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Blizzard recently welcomed Ezra Chatterton, a 10-year-old who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, into our headquarters for a day and gave him several unique opportunities. We have been touched by the outpouring of support from the World of Warcraft community, and wanted to take this opportunity to let players know that Ezra's father Micah is setting up a charity foundation to help pay some of the medical costs. Those interested can contact him at ephoenix@earthlink.net. You can also make a donation to the American Cancer Society to support ongoing cancer research.

Man, my dad didn't get to go to the Blizzard HQ with his tumor. He must feel pretty ripped off up there in heaven. If only adults got wishes too.

Blizzard was quite INconsiderated, they earn gazillion of dollars and they cannot pay those medical costs but they ask for another people to paid for it?.

:ermm:


hahahahahahahaah. so a major cooperation picks up a kids brain cancer medical tab, and you think it would end there? do you realize how much chaos blizzard would be setting themselves up for if they did that. everyone would want them to pick up their medial bills. its not feasible. why cant you think giving the kid a tour and letting him add his own content to the game is a really nice gift? how much of your budget do you alot to cancer research?

There was no need to crack a joke on a kid that may no be around too much longer. Completely disrespectful. You wouldn't be laughing if this were you or someone you knew. Grow up

Hmm, I just read those two articles. I'm happy for Ezra, seems like WoW really connects him and his dad. Good for the both of them and for Blizzard to let him designed whatever he wanted.
