Why Henry will be participating in the gamethon this Saturday.

Ordinarily I change or omit the names from emails I get.  For this one, though, the name remains intact.  It is from a man named Henry Reid who will be participating in the gamethon this Saturday to benefit Foundation Beyond Belief’s support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Here, in his email, he explains why:


I just caught word of Gamethon today and I am super interested in participating.  My grandmother, Margie Reid, has been fighting leukemia for decades now.  I am dedicating my participation to her.

My page has a longer listing of the games I play.

I would be available anytime on Saturday, I don’t have any plans.  I can fill in any gaps.

Possible games:
Aquaria (speedrun)
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock (first playthrough)
System Shock 2 (let’s play)
Left 4 Dead 2 (open join for viewers)

It would be cool to co-op if you own any of those games.

Last week I picked up some new game streaming equipment, and if it comes in before Saturday, I can play classic console games (NES, Genesis).

Possible Donation Incentives:

1) Costume change – I make costumes. I was thinking an incentive choice between my multiple Doctor Who and Buckaroo Banzai costumes.
2) Pick a game from my Steam account – If it is currently installed on my system.

I’m also a part of the game speedrunning community, and I will see if anyone might be interested.  I look forward to hearing back from you.  Thank you.


Cancer has touched most of us in one sad way or another.  It has taken grandparents from me.  I’m glad we have a chance to strike back, all the while enjoying one of the things that makes so wonderful: games.
