Adrian Rodriguez was just nine years of age when he died from cancer. It was 2018, and he already spent ample time in a hospital, and one of the major sources of his happiness is by playing video games. He has played several titles, but one of his most favorites is Call of Duty. The series made an impact on his life.\r\n\r\nNow, Adrian is gone, and it\u2019s heartwarming because there\u2019s a Call of Duty contest to raise cash to be used by CHKD or Children\u2019s Hospital Of The Kin\u2019s Daughters to further their research for cancer. The tournament was recently held in Virginia Beach, Virginia last March 30.\r\n\r\nKoko Rodriguez said the fascination of his son on playing video games began when he\u2019s still a baby. It begins when he started crawling, and they have a Wii controller at their house during that time.\r\n\r\nKoko told the story to ABC 13. After Wii, his son became attached to Xbox 360, then Xbox One, and that\u2019s the time when he started to play Call of Duty online. He has a small online gaming community, but it doesn\u2019t matter because he\u2019s playing with his friends. His pals couldn\u2019t see and judge him. No one is feeling sorry for Adrian.\r\n\r\nAlex, Adrian\u2019s brother, has remarked on the skills of his younger brother at playing Call of Duty. Alex said his brother is better than him even if he\u2019s older. Adrian is better than his older brother in everything as mentioned by Alex. When Alex played the game for the last time, Adrian was beside him.\r\n\r\nBecause Adrian\u2019s a huge Call of Duty fan, it\u2019s sensible to have a tournament of Call of Duty in his behalf. It\u2019s a way to honor Adrian. It\u2019s a way to raise money to help CHKD on their cancer research.\r\n\r\nThe tournament raised money through entry fees, and the proceeds have been donated to CKHD. ABC local news didn\u2019t report about the money raised and the number of gamers who participated in the game.\r\n\r\nCall of Duty has helped Adrian lived the life of a normal kid even if he\u2019s bedridden in a hospital. He\u2019s not comfortable letting his pals see him at his condition, so he made buddies through the online gaming community.\r\n\r\nAdrian\u2019s family believes that Adrian looks down on them happily. Koko said it\u2019s fun to be with Adrian that even if his son is sick, their days aren\u2019t really sad. The family said the tournament\u2019s not just to reminisce, Adrian, because it\u2019s to help other children who have cancer. To help other kids survive cancer or to help other people become more aware of cancer is to help Adrian and it will make him happier.
