Description: Steven Gonzalez, a patient at MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital, sees video games as a healing power rather than simply entertainment. When he began leukemia treatment as a young teenager, he felt separated from his peers and the normalcy of life. For Gonzalez, video games provided him a link to the world he knew before. To help other young cancer patients not feel so isolated, he created a cancer-fighting video game. He also joined patient committees at MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital to be a voice for fellow patients.
