Famous pinball designer Barry Oursler is seeking donations to raise money for treatment for himself and his wife Donna. In February 2013, Barry was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. The treatments and prescriptions are not covered 100% by insurance, so the bills are piling up. Last July, Donna was diagnosed with kidney failure. As a result, she must receive dialysis 3 times per week. Please read his story and donate HERE.
The IFPA would like to help by offering all tournament orgnaizers a chance to run an event to help raise funds for the Oursler's. Similar to the Flip Off Hunger campaign, the IFPA plans on treating each of these Oursler tournaments as a unique event, worth full value WPPR points, even if a particular location is already hosting another annual event in 2014. Get in touch with the IFPA at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in setting up an event and we'll work with you on getting it added to the IFPA calendar. We hope to set up events nationwide and use competitive pinball as a way to help Barry and his wife out in this unfortunate situation.
