Ryan Clayborn has been suffering from Muscular Dystrophy and MENS Type 2, but this didn't affect the smile which crept across his face once his wish was granted by the Kids Wish Network.
For some reason this guy sounds like me. I stay locked up in my room all day on the PC and I only come out to get a bite to eat, bathe, and use the bathroom. Sony, being part of the solution. Not the problem. TGSI
From curing cancer to curing a cancer patient's blues. What more could you ask for from a multimedia entertainment center.
If you played how this kid plays (i.e. amount of hours), and you were healthy, your parents would be pissed with you lol. Guess they know it makes him happy, so they let him do whatever.
I have hope too kido! Hope he has a good run.
... it only does everything. sorry i had to. still sounds cheesy
Late to the party... It's only does everything, even cure cancer "-but, but doesn't have XGchatz" /jk I couldn't resist lol This kind of articles bring the goodness of the gaming community, we need more of these articles
Playstation: Bringing smiles to sick kids since 1995
Back then I remember all you could play in hospitals was N64, dunno what it's like now.
I'm surprised that the news report didn't mention [email protected]
me too. that's what i initially thought of when i read the title, but if the kid is happy and feeling better, then that's good. hope this kid can recover, so young and sick is very sad to see. i wish him and his family all the best. pull through Ryan!
Thank god it wasn't a Xbox 3sh!tty,kid doesn't need to suffer more.
I agree, especially if Obama and Steve Ballmer were doing it.
"According to his father Victor, it just made his day and he hasn’t been able to stop playing" If it was the 360. He won't be playing it cause 54% failure rate 4 LIFE!
Hmm, nice read
What the hell, I've got two PS3's and would be happy to give one away to a "needy" kid, organizations like this need better advertising for support.
It only does EVERYTHING! :)
It only cures cancer. [email protected] also contributes to that fact. And in the story it says he had "MS type 2 cancer." Microsoft is a type of cancer now?!?!
It only does EVERYTHING!
Very heartwarming story, a rare occurence on N4G lol
Someone should let the family know about [email protected]
Pure awesome! If gaming can bring any amount of happiness to a person in this situation than bring it on.
Jesus, way to completely lower the tone guys.
This story is great would be even better if Sony personally gave it to him to see the expression on that kids face when he opens up the box would be priceless.
little man, watches porn in his room all day untill supper LOL
Good thing he never got a GarbageBOX3shitty otherwise he would of had have a 54.2% of loosing his life. PS3 Helps and saves lives. 360 kills innocent children.
its great to see that even somthing as simple as gaming can bring a smile to a sick kid's face. hope you have many more years of gaming Ryan.
if it was a X360 he would of went through like 5 in same day
Good for him I'm glad that his happy even tho his sick is good to see a smile on his face keep going bro and I wish u the best for u and you're family.btw playstation is doing it again!!!!
Sounds like a hardcore gamer they have there. Reminds me of all those hours I clocked in on my PS one back in the day.
Sure, someone who's dying is going to spend the last couple of years of their life in front of the TV? Get out and enjoy the world while you can still see it It's not even offering hope. He's living a sheltered life in front of a screen while he could be out enjoying life and everything it has to offer. Misleading title. Sounds more depressing than anything. If my life were ending within a few years I'd be traveling, spending time with friends and family, anything but sitting indoors.
you have to understand that not much can be done financially when someone has cancer because they have to pay the bills, and especially in this economy but I agree he should spend time with his family and friends Mr T hopes the kid good wishes
What the hell kind of title is that, anyway? So some Florida-based charity pitched in and got the kid a PS3 and games, and the hit-seeking SOB writer decided to put that as the title?
Cool. For a second I thought Sony actually did something themselves like the way Nintendo did in a house-fire story I heard not too long ago. Good for the kid though.
Shouldn't the kid be outside or something?
that depends if he receives keemo therapy, often people who receive alot of it can't even walk
yeah...maybe he should be outside for a jog or playing soccer or rugby or something. You moron.
The kid probably would've just keeled over and died had they brought in a 360.
thats a pretty stupid thing to say. im sure the kid has a concept of gratitide and prolly would have been happy with even a wii.cant you guys leave the fanboy bs out for even ONE article? this comments section was alright until you posted that.
One day with his new 360 he doesn't come for dinner. The family look for him and notice the xbox has red rings of death. He didn't make it. Sorry I had too.
Your must always remember The stupid xbots are the biggest disgrace to the gaming universe since the north american game crash of 1983
If this was MS you would all go "MS are so greedy they use cancer patients to market their console and earn more money!".
