The Drax Files: World Makers Episode 13 ‘Creations For Parkinsons’

 I absolutely adore this video series that Draxtor is producing and I think he’s just uploaded his most moving episode to date.  

The video features 86 year old Fran Serenade, who uses Second Life to engage with friends and partake in activities such as horseback riding and experiencing the metaverse as a beautiful Mermaid avatar.

Fran has Parkinsons Disease, and by engaging in Second Life she is able to enjoy herself free from the limitations that her condition often puts upon her. 

Even better, it would appear that her participation  in Second Life is proving to be a great source of therapy for her condition and Fran is convinced that her experiences in Second Life are enabling positive changes in her real life condition too!

This is such a fantastic insight into the charitable sector and how Second Life can be used to assist and educate about serious medical conditions.

Not only that but both Fran and her daughter are really beautiful people, and I could not help but be moved by this episode.  (In fact, I’m going to visit ‘Creations For Parkinsons’ and say ‘Hi!’)

Keep ’em coming Drax; you really deserve an award for the fantastic work that you’re doing for our virtual homeland!
