Oculus Rift VR Grants Final Wish To Dying Woman

Roberta Fistenberg is an older woman who has been diagnosed with an incurable cancer. Mrs. Fistenberg had one final wish in this world and that final wish was to go outside once more. Enjoy the beauty of nature again before she would pass onwards into the other side.

The grandchildren of Roberta took it upon themselves to contact a Seattle based video game artist by the name of Priscilla. Priscilla sent the Fisternberg family a Oculus Rift Headset and a variety of different demos that they could try out. Eventually Roberta found herself enjoying the Google Street View Demo as this allowed for her to essentially walk throughout the world once again, wherever she wanted. The grandchildren said that she was able to visit many places from her past and it worked as a sense of therapy for her. Four weeks after receiving the headset Roberta got too weak to use the headset and passed on shortly thereafter.


Oculus Rift VR has openly said that they plan to use the headset to change the world. They want to be able to make people live and one of the best ways that they can do that is put them in a virtual world, allow them to experience things that once were not possible to them. The Oculus Rift will allow for users to enter a world filled with memories of the past, new worlds that could never be explained and so much more.
