Warcraft Online Gaming Community Rallies Around Boy With Cancer Who Makes-a-Wish

10 year-old Ezra, living with a brain tumor, was given his wish — and more — by the designers, artists and staff of Blizzard Entertainment, the makers of the wildly successful online game, World of Warcraft. The Make-A-Wish foundation wanted to help grant Ezra’s wish to become the first outsider to create a new character for the game. Since the story broke in a local paper, the WoW community has rallied and cheered its newest star, whose father said, "I do believe it impacted the situation. It impacted his health and happiness."

  1. Nice story. I used to work in games and I know anyone can get a job there if they show enthusiasm / self taught knowledge. I’ve known guys that came in a testers and within a few years got to the top -designing number one games for Sony etc. If you love games it’s a nice job.
