    This Week’s Best of the Web, Featuring a Teen’s Inspirational Gaming Community

    Hey girls! Happy (almost) weekend!

    One of our goals here at PI is to bring you the best of the best on the web in a weekly roundup. To do so, we’d love to hear what you are interested in knowing about. What do you love and want to see more of? Let us know in the comments!

    Super inspiring story:

    Knowing how tough it is for teens with cancer to feel a sense of community, Steven Gonzalez set out to create “The Survivor Games.” As Gonzalez explained to The Huffington Post, “Kids going through cancer treatment still need friends and a social outlet, but they also need something more, a support group where people understand what they are going through. You see, a teen with cancer feels isolated from the world not only physically but also socially and emotionally. Social isolation can happen when you don’t ‘fit’ into your group anymore because you don’t look or feel like yourself when you are going through treatment. Cancer treatment is tough on the body, and many teenagers feel self-conscious with all of their scars from cancer. For me the thing I needed most was just to feel normal.”

    Now, his new non-profit organization–a social network video game–does just that. It’s a place where cancer can be irrelevant for a bit, and teens can enjoy a common hobby together. Gonzalez writes, “The network will be similar to a virtual version of an arcade. Here, teens will be able to play games in a safe environment with other teens and even watch experienced players continue to beat their previous high scores. They can also talk to other teen patients about video games and catch up on gaming news.”

    1. I think that inspiring story is wonderful and I recommend to anyone who liked it to read the book The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. <3 But really I think that the last picture at the bottom is my favorite. <3
