After a construction accident 20 years ago, Ken Worrall became a Tetraplegic. Before the accident, Ken says he played Mario Kart and sports games with his children, but now, thanks to a device called the Joust, he can play Diablo, WoW and StarCraft.

In the video below, Ken, who goes by NoHandsKen, talks about his struggle and how welcoming and supportive gamers and Twitch users have been as he acclimatizes himself to using the streaming service.

I don’t really know what else to say that Ken himself didn’t in the video – other than he really touched my heart. We wish him the best, and you can follow him on Twitch here and through Twitter as well.

Watch the video below, and ignore the war of words going on in the comments section. Seriously. Some people just can’t leave anything unsullied.
