We hear from our players that exploring the world of Shadow’s Edge can help to build resilience when faced with chronic illness or serious medical challenges. Now we’re starting to hear from doctors, psychologists and other healthcare professionals, as well, who are using the game to help their young patients — professionals like Kathy Hull, MFCC, PsyD, founder of the George Mark Children’s House, and Barbara Sourkes, PhD, director of the Palliative Care Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University, and Dale Larson, PhD, professor in the Department of Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University, and Sheri Brisson, 30-year brain cancer survivor and founder of the Digging Deep Project. If you connect with their mission to help young people heal the emotional side of their illness, please consider downloading Shadow’s Edge for free from the App Store or Google Play, or subscribing to our YouTube channel, where you can find inspirational teens talking about life with illness.
