Foundation Philosophy

Join Team JEGS - Get Involved

The National Cancer Institute (NCI),"the nation's investment in cancer research," supports scientific discovery and its application in clinical practice through NCI-funded research in the U.S. and around the world. By stimulating the generation of new knowledge and tools and encouraging collaborations among researchers in a myriad of NCI-supported initiatives, the NCI works toward its goal "to achieve a future when all cancers are uncommon and easily treated."

JEGS Foundation for Cancer Research is honored to be affiliated with two of only 39 nationally designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute at the Ohio State University, and the Ireland Cancer Center of University Hospitals Health System.

The Coughlin Family
Formed The JEGS Foundation to advance the need for cancer research. Our personal experiences with cancer drove us to assist in building awareness of the many facets of cancer and help generate dollars through race earnings to advance cancer research. Thus, the motto "Racing for Cancer Research."

Leading the Team Racing for Cancer Research
The Coughlin family is leading the charge, sporting the uniquely designed racing check awareness ribbon on all Team JEGS racing uniforms.

A Team United, On and Off the Track
The Coughlins' believe in meeting a challenge head-on. It is through their personal experience with close family members and friends who were touched by this disease, that the commitment was formed to establish JEGS Foundation for Cancer Research.

"Our family has been so blessed, forming JEGS Foundation for Cancer Research is one small way we can help others meet the challenge of surviving cancer."

Reaching out through the family-run businesses of Jegs Mail Order and Team Jegs Racing, the "Racing for Research" program offers others access to information on cutting-edge cancer treatments and an avenue to become involved to make a difference.

Types of Cancer
Cancer is a group of more than 100 diseases. Anyone can get cancer and any tissue can develop into cancer. The cells that make up the normal body have genetic mechanisms to control reproduction. Cancer begins when a cell mutates (changes), loses the ability for controlled reproduction, and begins to grow and spread.

Many environmental, chemical, viral, and personal factors may contribute to the change of a cell from normal to a cancer cell. Scientists have described the series of essential genetic steps that must occur for a cell to become transformed. This complex process may occur decades before a cancer is detected.
