Amy Green: A video game to cope with grief | TED Talk | TED.com


When Amy Green’s young son was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, she made up a bedtime story for his siblings to teach them about cancer. What resulted was a video game, “That Dragon, Cancer,” which takes players on a journey they can’t win. In this beautiful talk about coping with loss, Green brings joy and play to tragedy. “We made a game that’s hard to play,” she says, “because the hardest moments of our lives change us more than any goal we could ever accomplish.”

  1. ““That Dragon, Cancer,” which takes players on a journey they can’t win.”

    Sad thing about cancer is that some people will lose.
    However, it’s not a game that everyone playing will lose. There are winners everyday.
