The Guy Who Invented The Operation Board Game Can’t Afford His Own Surgery
People have started sending him money and messages of support.
A crowdfunding project has been launched to raise money for John Spinello, the inventor of the hugely popular board game Operation, so he can receive real-life medical care.
In a video posted to YouTube on 18 October, his friends and fellow game inventors Tim Walsh and Peggy Walsh revealed things had become tough for Spinello and his family.
And yesterday he appeared in a video to announce that donations had now reached over $15,000.
