Boise, ID -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2013 -- Growing up practically from birth, Gina Johnson was raised in a hospital, and the only thing that kept her going through all the surgeries/procedures was gaming. Video gaming saved her life, and now, she is trying to save it in return.
Gina Johnson is known to some as a disabled female gamer on Xbox Live. Her gamertag is Dogiojoe. She has also been playing video games for most of her life. As she has played on all the major and minor systems, including the classics, and current gen devices. Following the mass casualty events in July 2012, she decided to stand up and defend the gaming industry.
“Why I game!” is exactly how it sounds, it’s a book explaining why people play video games. She has been working on it for months, and now she is getting to the part where she needs funding help to make it a reality. The book will be around 100 pages (5 B&W, 95 Full Color), and will be published in Mid-January 2014, and feature 3 sections.

Features include: PTSD Benefits, Increased Hand-Eye coordination, Benefits for seniors 55+, more social interaction, and finally proof… that doctors who game perform better while operating on patients.
