ONE DIAGNOSIS, MILLIONS OF BATTLES, BILLIONS AFFECTED:

The Amazing Race to Find A Cure

The Inspiration

We never thought about a cure for lung cancer, but we never believed Jack would be diagnosed.

 

Jack was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital by a group of talented doctors from whom he received the best possible treatment. It is because of these doctors, namely Dr. Lecia Sequist, that Jack was able to live a full life with his wonderful wife, children, and grandchildren.
When Devyn created the race, she hoped to raise $400. With the help of her family and community, she has  raised $35,000 to benefit Massachusetts General Hospital's Lung Cancer Research Fund. Devyn is just beginning.By creating a wide range of fundraisers in order to raise more money for MGH, the Lung cancer Research Team is creating new medications to increase the length and quality of life for lung cancer patients across the globe. 

The Mission

Devyn Casey, only 13 years old at the time, created the Amazing Race to Find A Cure in the hopes to ensure no other child would have to lose their grandparents to lung cancer.

The Impact

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer. The Amazing Race to Find A Cure was created in the hope that no child has to lose a loved one to lung cancer. Jack was a funny, loving and kind-hearted man who lost his battle to lung cancer on January 17th 2013. Since that time, there have been many advances in the medications and treatment options to treat lung cancer. Though this disease may feel insurmountable, we know that with the proper funds and hope, a cure for lung cancer is possible. Every penny raised goes directly to Mass General Hospital's Lung Cancer Research Fund. We started with a small and fun scavenger hunt and in over three years, are proud to have raised over $30,000! The Amazing Race to Find A Cure is expanding to have more fundraisers throughout the year to raise even more money for Mass General. 

Help us make a difference for everyone affected by cancer, everywhere.
