For Jasmine and her dad, Jon, playing video games together has been a way to bond, have fun and give back. Jasmine was born with a limb difference, her left arm shorter than her right and her fingers conjoined. At Lurie Children’s, doctors separated her fingers to improve functionality and allow her to use both hands for everyday tasks. Now with what her parents lovingly call her “lucky fin”, she and her dad joined Extra Life Chicago to use the power of gaming for good and fundraise for kids just like Jasmine. On November 2, hundreds of gamers will play and fundraise for the patients and families at Lurie Children’s with Extra Life. Register today and top the leaderboard all while fundraising for our patients and families at Extra-Life.org.
