Hi, I'm TheRagingterror! By day, I'm a registered nurse in a major hospital in Portland, Oregon. By night, I'm a partnered streamer that likes to goof off and break stuff in a wide variety of video games, especially Warframe.
It is a near universal experience to know someone that is or has experienced cancer, and it is nearly as common to have lost someone to this awful illness. Between losses in my own family and the losses I've witnessed working in the hospital environment for the last 15 years and change, I have come to absolutely despise this disease and what it does to patients and their loved ones.
This will be my third year taking part in QTCC as part of Team Warframe. As with last year, I will spend the entirety of the month of October raising money for The Princess Margaret Cancer Center, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. The centre drives ground-breaking cancer research, fuels advancements in cancer care, and shares these innovations around the world.
As in years past, I've lined up a number of fun (and painful) incentives for this year's run, including some special, hidden stretch goals should we top $3K raised. Go on... hurt me for charity. I may gripe about it in the moment, but believe me when I say this: While I may dislike some of what happens to me this month, I hate cancer with an intensity that is orders of magnitude stronger.
Let's take that spite and use it for good, eh?
