5 Video Games Taking on Cancer

Here at the Houston Press we have a little saying, and that saying is "Cancer can suck the tail pipe of an uninspected Chrysler." Around 1,500 Americans die daily of the disease, which is like 9/11 happening every other day. It's an ongoing fight to beat back the Tumor Kaiser, and Houston especially is a potent base in that war.

Now, I'm not smart enough to know which end of the test tube is up so my ability to enlist in the fight is minimal. However, I do know video games pretty well, and today I would like to present to you five of them currently being used to kick Big C right in its bulgy groin. Get ready, Player One.
