Thank you DoubleDown Interactive for launching an in-game fundraiser which attracted more than 80,000 players and combining your support to raise $10,000 to benefit COVID-19 programs.


A new Solitaire game has launched featuring Vampire Diaries’ Kelly Hu, Project Runway’s Kini Zamora, NBA player Jason Collins, recording artists and American Idol stars DeAndre Brackensick and Jasmine Trias, Miss Hawaii 2019, and many more stars.  The custom card game, created by Solitaired, will benefit our breast cancer fund and remind cancer patients that they may feel solitary during the pandemic, but they’re never alone! 


"Why Gamers vs. Cancer? I am a gamer, and games helped me survive cancer - mentally, emotionally, and economically." - Nic Kelman
