Assuming management of FlatCon is Gamers for LIfe, a group of gamers raising funds to help fight cancer.
Gamers for Life sponsor a number of activities, including game demos, a raffle, used game auction on Saturday, and a build-your-own-sword workshop. All proceeds raised will go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
The members of Gamers for Life have all been affected by cancer, having watched grandparents, parents, siblings, and spouses battle—and sometimes die—from the disease. One member, John Beemsterboer (first on the left in photo at bottom), helped his wife fight breast cancer after she was diagnosed with the disease while pregnant with their daughter, now 5:
“Cancer is a devastating disease for any family to face. I want to do whatever I can to prevent others from going through what we went through,” said Beemsterboer. “This is also an opportunity to support two great loves of my life: my wife and gaming.”
