Brothers in gaming 4cr found this gem buried in some overall fitness articles about the Wii:
Buried at the bottom of a couple mainstream articles about the Wii is a slightly different take on the whole â€œfitnessâ€ phenomenon. Mary Jane Zamora is a 50 year old woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2005. After a round of chemotherapy she found herself weakened, too tired to get off the couch. It was then that her daughters brought out the Wii for her to play. Although â€œexhaustingâ€ at first, she was soon playing everyday.
Soon after her recovery she rejoined her bowling league and was deemed its most improved player. â€œWhat this game did for me was encourage me that I could still do these kind of things. It came around when I needed it.â€ Zamora said that the Wii and its games helped her to visualize her new life, after cancer.
Can the Wii help everyone with their fitness/health problems? No. But the fact that it’s doing something where once there was nothing is pretty amazing.
