MechWarrior Online Fights Cancer With Custom Mech in Memory of Deceased Player
Back in May a young MechWarrior Online player named Sarah Parries tragically lost her life to cancer in Vancouver, Canada. Today the game’s developer Piranha Games announced the release of a special edition Jenner mech that can be purchased for $10. 100% of the proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.
At the moment of this writing the fundraising already reached the respectable sum of $16,360, meaning that 1636 Sarah’s Jenners have already found a generous owner. The numbers keep climbing.
Sarah’s father, Jon, left a moving message to the community:
You guys should have seen Sarah when I brought out some old Battletech models for the first time. I showed her a Jenner that was in the box, but it looked a little bit different because it had a dome head. Sarah cocked her head and said, “That’s not a Jenner, Jenners have a pointy head!”
Again I can never thank all of you enough for all the time and effort you at MWO have provided. It has helped a lot knowing that people out there legitimately care.
Below you can see a small trailer featuring the mech, and a few screenshots. What are you waiting for? You can go purchase your own. It’s a good cause, and it looks really cute to boot. You only have time until August the 20th
Rest well, Sarah.
