MEET OUR AMAZING AMBASSADORS HELPING US BEAT CANCER

SkillUp

Ralph, aka Skill Up, is one of YouTube’s most watched gaming commentators and critics. Based in Australia, Skill Up made the jump from corporate life to gaming content creator 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back. Ralph covers big AAA releases but is equally passionate about the indie scene, providing news, previews, reviews and commentary to some 10m viewers a month. 

“Every day we see the effects of cancer on those around us. Sometimes we feel its effects on those closest to us. The fight feels endless and it shouldn’t be that way. That’s what drew me to Game on Cancer. I like the idea of researchers trying to end the fight once and for all. That’s why I’m so proud to support the work that Game On Cancer is doing”

Back Pocket

If you’re a fan of video games and you live in Australia, then you’re likely very familiar with the Back Pocket team already. With decades of combined gaming, production and live broadcast experience Gus, Pete & Steph have been pillars of the video game community down under (and beyond) for what feels like forever! Follow them below and see why we’re stoked to have them on board as Game On Cancer® Ambassadors!

“As part of the gaming community, we face challenges in games but nothing like the challenge thousands of Australians faces every day. Back Pocket is proud to be a Game On Cancer® Ambassador and help fund this invaluable research in Australia.”

Miss Molly Makes

Miss Molly Makes is one of only a few Aussie dedicated cooking channels on Twitch, co-created and ran by Molly and Exceede. They are passionate about removing the barriers of entry into the kitchen and supporting everyone to get making! Pull up a chair and share in the food love as they make delicious home-style food and recreations of food items from games, movies & cuisines.

Working with Game on Cancer gives us the confidence to fundraise in support of cancer research indiscriminately. When considering charities to align with in the past, we’ve been concerned that by supporting one with a more individual focus, it’s seen as not supporting others that we also care about. With Game on Cancer’s transparency about where the community’s money is going, we can fundraise proudly to help make so many lives so much better.
