Rhetts battle with MS threatens his legacy

This is the hardest part. A parent begging for help for their child. Yes, he's a grown man but he is still my kiddo. That is actually how we came up with the name for his video game company, Hey Kiddo Games. When any of my sons would call or come home I would always say "Hey kiddo!" But enough of the sentimental journey.
We are asking for help to complete Rhetts video game Ingonga, before the effects of the Multiple Sclerosis make it impossible for him to work at all.
We will use the money to do two things, first to hire a gaming industry person to help Rhett finish the production work.
We will also use part of the money to cover medical costs not paid for by his insurance company.
I am personally hoping that by reaching out we may find a few people who work in his field to offer their services pro bono. This would be an ideal result.
Let me tell you a little about my son. Rhett has a genius level IQ and was an instant geek from childhood. Eventually he went to work for Activision Corporation in Santa Monica, California. Rhett became an associate producer on the phenomenon Call of Duty. His passion for WWII served gamers well as Rhett made sure that nothing went into the COD games that wasn't historically accurate.
Boy were his parents proud of him! And we are even more proud of his courageous decision to produce his own video game.
We set him up in business after sharing an idea I had for a new video game.
The game, Ingonga, is gorgeous. It is also Rhetts legacy.
Won't you help him complete his work and save his legacy before that genius mind and huge heart are made prisoners by the Multiple Sclerosis?
Thank You
I am proudgeekmom!
