Elite Dangerous devs and players help dying child's final days

Recommended Posts

Quite a heart warming story- Frontier and Elite's community rallied round to help ease the final days of a terminally ill 15 year old. Given the usual stories of toxic, racist game communities and rampant greed amongst video game publishers, this is a good if very sad read.

Jesus.  I'm sitting here waiting for my own 15 year old son to get home after 4 days away and that hits hard.

Fair play to all those involved who went out of their way to make his last days more tolerable.  Sad indeed.

That's a hard read, and as Mat Westhorpe says, a bittersweet story of empathy, bravery and kindness.
