Where the $ Goes

RACE Charities partnership with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Where the money goes-  All of the donations to RACE Charities go to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Just weeks before she passed away, Glory Gensch sought out and found Fred Hutch on the Internet and believed 100% in her new found vision of doing everything possible to prevent others from having to go through what she had been through over the course of the final eleven months of her life.  Glory’s mission is about early detection of colon cancer- and how IF ONLY the cancer in her body had been detected earlier when various symptoms were ailing her and stemming from something that she just didn’t feel was quite right, and IF ONLY quicker, easier, and more accurate testing procedures were available to her as options for discovering the threat and possibility of tumors or cancer cells in her body, the chances of being able to successfully fight the disease early on would have increased her chances of survival.

Today, Glory’s mission is being fulfilled in part through the relationship between RACE Charities and Fred Hutch.  As one of the leading early detection and prevention of cancer centers, The Hutch’s team of scientists, specialists, and research doctors comprise a globally renowned reputation as one of the top research centers in the world.  The mission of Fred Hutch is to eliminate cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. Their interdisciplinary teams of world renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat these diseases, bringing a relentless pursuit and passion for health, knowledge and hope to their work and the world.

In 2006, the same year Glory was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer, The American Cancer Society reported in that twelve month span 148,610 men and women (72,800 men and 75,810 women) were diagnosed with colon cancer and 55,170 of those men and women have died or will die of the disease.  The battle continues in the fight for life, and warriors like you are greatly needed.  In Glory’s words-

“If just one life is saved, the sacrifices we all make will be worth it.” -Glorianna Gensch (June 2007)
