I received an incredibly touching email from a CryptoKitties player recently, and I wanted to share it with you all (with their permission). It’s a beautiful piece of evidence that Bella’s Kitty Den and the Kitties for a Cause campaign are having a real impact on real people, and I’m so grateful I get to be a part of such a generous cause.
This is the email I received:
“I just saw that you’re a part of the Kitties 4 a Cause for Seattle Children’s… and my goodness, it brings many tears.
My neice, she was 4 years old, and she had AT/RT brain cancer. We live in the Seattle/Tacoma area, so when she got her diagnosis, her brain surgery was performed at Mary Bridge in Tacoma, but after that she was taken up to Seattle Children’s, which is where she received care for about 8 months until she passed.
Her name was Sadie, and she put up a hell of a fight, by laughing and playing and singing through all of the invasive treatments and appointments and such. Sure there were bad days, but SC really had her best interests at heart, and did their best to keep us all positive, most importantly Sadie. We spent a lot of time up there, but especially her parents. It’s a really rough experience for the whole family when their child gets sick, so having resources available can be such a blessing. Raising money to take care of everything was not easy for us, so I can really appreciate what you’re doing. Thank you.”
