The family and friends of Team Casey are uniting to raise money for his medical and out of pocket expenses not covered by insurance.

On 11-11-11, Casey was told he has a mass in his chest. It turned out to be Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. His and everyone life around him was turned upside down. I am asking for your help and support in Casey's cause. Thank you.

Here is a little something he posted on his Facebook page," Yes cancer does suck for the person, It’s a horrible disease that beats you mercilessly into submission. It drags your mind, body and soul to death’s door before ultimately destroying the host or leaving as mysteriously as it arrived. It lurks in the shadows of remission and even under the best circumstances, leaves a permanent scar on the survivor. But it also does more, while we are getting beat into submission, we have to watch our friends and family be drained emotionally too.

When I was diagnosed I was the only one in my hospital room with a smile, to be honest, I did not know the severity of what I was told and when I looked around, everyone had tears in their eye, and in the months that followed, I still see the drain it puts on the people around me.

From every part of my heart, to the fiber of my being, to the caverns of my soul, I want to say,"Thank You So Much for being there with me. Shaving your head, taking me to chemo, driving me to Stanford, being my roommate at Stanford, going through code blues with me, and having to make the hard decision to put your son on life support, picking me up so I can go to the valley to say hello to people. Thank you so much, and no matter what I will always love you guys."

Casey just wants to go back to 11-10-11, having the life he had, going to college to get his degree.
