The day Aunika came into the world, she was already a medical mystery. After a stay in NICU, initial tests revealed that she wasn’t just immune deficient – she had no immune system whatsoever. Extensive testing unearthed the cause: Aunika was absent a Thymus gland, that compromised her body’s ability to train T-cells. It’s at this point the universe put Dr. Ryan Smith in the family’s path. The family credits Dr. Smith with normalizing an emotionally difficult time for them. He became their positive voice and passionate advocate, taking it upon him to petition the Ministry of Health to fund the rare Thymus tissue transplant that would come to save their infant’s life. With the help of Dr. Smith, the family was able to recently celebrate their baby girl’s first miraculous birthday.
“Generously stuffed with player-made emergent moments on the battlefield and an incredible sense of place, Verdun is not just a great take on one of history’s more marginalised wars, it also happens to be a resoundingly solid shooter in its own right too.”

“I became immersed in its careful pacing and focus on squad movement.”

“Verdun's given me an excellent understanding of what a mess World War I was. Verdun's Frontlines mode really is sort of ingenious—and I think this is definitely one worth checking out, especially if you're already interested in the subject matter.”
