Local Gamer Fighting Against Leukemia

 

Houston-native, long-time Magic player, and shield-mate to Asgard Games Drew Feder is bravely battling a terrible disease. Drew is a friend to many in the Magic the Gathering community and it’s time to step in and help him on his road to victory! On May 6th, Asgard Games hosts a family-friendly fundraiser for Drew. It’s a day of celebration and gaming. There will be special tournaments, a bake sale, face painting, music, a silent auction, raffle prizes, discounted prices for games, and much more. A portion of the sales and tournament entry fees directly benefit Drew. You can also donate to his GoFundMe campaign. Come help us help Drew win the game that really matters.

 

Here’s a little note from Drew.

My name is Drew Feder. I was born and raised in Houston and started playing Magic around the release of Fourth Edition and Ice Age. In college, I took a break from Houston and Magic but happily returned to both. After a few different post-college jobs, I started a software and translation business and around the same time, I started playing Magic again. I love my old cards, so 1.5 / Legacy attracted me and I’ve been addicted to the format ever since. At the time, I had to travel to Dallas and Austin for Legacy tournaments but luckily I soon discovered that a new gaming shop opened up in central Houston called Asgard. Now, we Houstonians are blessed with frequent Legacy tournaments (along with everything else gamers could want). Unfortunately, I’ve been taken away from my favorite hobby again in the last few months. In November of 2016 I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. The news came as a shock and life has been turned upside down to a certain extent. Hospital visits for chemotherapy and other treatments now dominate my schedule, along with insurance ordeals, etc. Work and other obligations have become more difficult and I have to wait for my white blood cell counts to be high enough before I can visit my friends at Asgard and get my Legacy fix. However, I’m fighting and expect to win the battle against this disease by the end of the year. The support I’ve received during this process has been the silver lining of the situation and I’m incredibly appreciative. With the help of family and friends, I hope that by 2018 I will be taking my weekly Legacy tournaments for granted once again!
