DELAWARE, OH. (April 30) – Ohio State University’s Comprehensive Cancer Center — Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute recognized the fifth anniversary of the JEGS Foundation “Racing for Cancer Research” program on April 29th by presenting a certificate of appreciation to the Coughlin family.

The JEGS Foundation “Racing for Cancer Research” program directly benefits the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute by raising money for cancer research, educating the racing community and public at-large on the disease, providing an avenue for people to get involved in the fight against cancer, and helping with patient care.

Peter Weiler, President of The Ohio State University Foundation, and Kathy Zets were on-hand at JEGS Mail Order’s Delaware, Ohio-based operation for a small ceremony honoring the Coughlin family for their five years of support.

“We’re quite honored by this special gift,” said John Coughlin, one of the four drag racing brothers that run JEGS Mail Order. “The fight against cancer is vitally important and we’re dedicated to helping this cause as long as we’re able to do so. The first five years have been very exciting and rewarding for all of us and we feel as though we’ve just begun.

“Our family has been personally affected by these terrible diseases so we know how devastating these things can be, but we’ve also witnessed so much progress in cancer research, prevention, and aftercare. A diagnosis of cancer is no longer a death sentence. We urge anyone out there to visit or call 800-293-5066 to speak with one of the professionals at the hospital if they have any questions or concerns. Together we can all make a difference.”
