About Ben:
Ben Duskin is an enthusiastic gamer. Early during his treatment, his doctor suggested he find ways to visualize his body healing.  Ben and his mother talked about imagining his medicine as a Pac Man video game, eating the cancer cells. This became the catalyst for “Ben’s Game.” Currently a 4th Grade student with excellent grades, Ben is especially fond of reading and math.  He spends his free time working on his basketball game with hopes to one day be an NBA player (preferably for his favorite team, the L.A. Lakers.)  Ben is now finished with treatment, in remission, and feeling well. He takes pride in the fact that he is now able to do things for kids who are now at the treatment center.  His favorite foods are Chinese and ice cream and he loves spending time with his dog, Cheddar.
