Join Team Kaleigh & Help Save a Life - MMORPG.com

Freejam and the Robocraft community are taking part in a special charity event to raise money to help fund the treatment of a rare brain cancer afflicting a little girl named Kaleigh whose family is quite close to the development team. From today through January 26th, "You Play, We Pay" is going on with every match seeing four pence donated to the cause. Players can also make direct donations to Kaleigh's fund. Freejam is hoping to raise  £10,000.

Meet Kaleigh, she is a friend of Freejam and suffers from a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumour condition known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). This life-threatening form of brain cancer is predominantly found in children. DIPG is as hard to treat as it is rare; with around 40 children diagnosed in the UK every year. Sadly, 50% of cases diagnosed pass away within the first 9 months.

Kaleigh’s family is trying to raise over £200,000 to fund groundbreaking Convection-enhanced Delivery (CED) therapy to improve her quality-of-life and to raise awareness of the condition.

On hearing of Kaleigh’s plight we felt compelled to help and we invite you, the Robocraft community, to join us.

Read the full blog post on the Robocraft site. You can also read more about Kaleigh's ongoing battle by visiting her father's blog.
