MechWarrior Online developer Piranha Games has now raised over $100,000 for cancer research from sales of a special mech released in memory of a five-year-old fan who died from inoperable brain cancer in May.

The "Sarah's Jenner" mech is based on the model enjoyed by 5-year-old Sarah Marie Alida Parries. One hundred percent of proceeds from sales of the $10 mech will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Those interested in purchasing the mech can do so at a special landing page for the offer. The promotion ends on August 20. Due to the special nature of the mech, it cannot be sold for C-Bills and can be purchased only once. In terms of gameplay, the mech will be treated as a regular JR7-D, but also includes a 10 percent XP boost per match played.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
