Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes has established itself one of the premier mobile games, but it’s not often you’ll ever hear about its players. Recently, the story of a young player battling cancer has swept through the SWGOH community, leading to an outpouring of support.
The 14-year-old player goes by the player ID MINISNOWWALKER, or MINI. One of MINI’s guild members has taken to reaching out to other guilds, arena and fleet shards, requesting that they join in the movement to support and honor MINI in this difficult time.
A Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes community group named Bountyhunnies have started a fundraiser for MINI through St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. The original goal was set for $2000, but has far surpassed that number with it currently climbing past the $6000 mark. Donations to the campaign would go directly to MINI’s family to help them with medical bills related to MINI’s condition.
Players are also raising awareness of MINI in other ways. Small gestures can go a long way, and Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes players are adding “MINI” to their player IDs to spread the word about their battle, and to show support.
The message has also reached some of the major SWGOH content creators, who have taken it upon themselves to spread the word and show support for MINISNOWWALKER.
