The Big V gives Platinum Pass to Ecuadorian doctor in a fight against the Big C

PokerStars Team Pro, and Twitch superstar, Lex Veldhuis, calls time on his Platinum Pass Challenge by awarding a seat in the PokerStars’ Player’s No-Limit Hold’em Championship to an Ecuadorian doctor committed to helping people living with cancer.

The most underrated act is showing up.
I ask people to check-in for 30-consecutive days, sharing details of their trials and tribulations, and how those manifest in the emotions.
Last night, after I had put the broom down, turned off the radio, and opened up the laptop for one last time, a forum member questioned the effectiveness of this process.
?I don?t want to share my life with the world.? He said.
I had to remind him, that if he wanted to become someone that doesn?t drink alcohol, he would have to begin by serving others, something that few people seem to do these days.
He still didn?t get it.
Benjamin Alvarado does.
