Online gaming is a lifeline for many patients who feel isolated during treatment. Lead Gamer Agents are trained to game with warriors in active treatment, survivors, and siblings. We have gamers on all platforms. Gaming is more than just having fun; it provides a safe atmosphere for a child to be themselves, while interacting with their peers.
The following are all invited to game with us:
This, and every MIB Agents program, is free of charge, thanks to generous donors who Make it Better.
My name is Matthew and I am a Lead Gamer Agent for MIB Agent Gamers. My brother Mason passed from osteosarcoma in March of 2017, and I will always remember how much he enjoyed gaming, and how it was always a bonding experience for us. Gaming always lifted his spirits, and I think that every kid, no matter their situation or struggle, has a right to have fun. For me, gaming has always been a large part of my life, and as a Lead Gamer Agent, I have made it my mission to bring the joy I feel when playing to everyone or anyone who needs it.
Hi my name is Bentley Dyer and I am the Chief Gamer Agent here at MIB Agents. My sister Sloane was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in December of 2016 and is currently N.E.D.. Gaming was one of the two ways that I was able to escape reality during her treatment. Later, I met other MIB Agents and started to game with them. Gaming lifts the spirits of many children and young people that I have encountered and it is my honor to help facilitate the connecting of those who would otherwise not meet.
Hello everyone my name is Jack Castiglione and I am going to be one of the Lead Gamer Agents for MIB. I have had three very close friends that have suffered from Osteosarcoma. Gaming is a great way to relieve stress and to find a new passion. It also helps connect people far, wide, young and old. I am really looking forward to this position and supporting people through it.
Hello, I’m Sean Brosnan and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of MIB Gamer Agents. In 2010, my aunt was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, and with a lot of faith and support she won her battle. I’m inspired to help offer relief through gaming for those who are in a similar fight. My job is to supervise our agents and to listen. I’m here whenever anyone needs to talk or voice an idea and I am eager to meet everyone.
Hello, I'm Daniel Saptari and I am happy to be one of the Lead Gamer Agents for MIB. In July of 2020, I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in my left femur. Gaming was an escape for me during treatment, surgeries, and COVID lockdown, and I was able to connect with my friends when I would otherwise not be able to. I am very grateful to have an opportunity to support others in a similar situation as I was, and I hope I can make the greatest impact possible.
