A cancer diagnosis is an isolating experience for both the patient and their family. Suddenly, you no longer share the same everyday occurrences as your friends, peers, co-workers and extended family. School aged patients spend so much time in the hospital and possibly traveling for treatment that their daily activities are vastly different from their friends. Parents are no longer worried about packing lunches, scheduling extra-curricular activities or which neighbor has the best looking grass. Suddenly you are trying to navigate your way through unknown territory without Google Maps and you feel isolated, like you are living in a cave, alone.

Prayer Agents are essential to the Missions of MIB Agents. This elite team of Agents are called upon both in time of great need as well as regular monthly times of prayer across the country and the world. Whatever your practice, you are welcome to join this team in prayer, a moment of silence, a candle lit, time in nature, a place of worship on a boat, train or bus. Please join us in supporting our Osteosarcoma Warriors who are doing battle and remembering our Osteosarcoma Angels who have passed fighting this beastly disease.
Lead Prayer Agent: Wendi Johns

Lead Gamer Agent: Matthew
My name is Matthew and I am the Chief 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 Chief Gamer Agent, I have made it my mission to bring the joy I feel when playing to everyone or anyone who needs it.
Lead Gamer Agent: Bentley
Hi my name is Bentley Dyer and I am one of the Chief Agent Gamers. 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 Timothy Songster and started to game with him. Gaming lifts the spirits of many children that I have encountered and it is my honor to help facilitate the connecting of those who would otherwise not meet.
