We asked Players vs. Cancer gamers why they raise funds on behalf of the AACR: Quintessa AKA “TessThe5th” twitch.tv/TessThe5th “I am familiar with cancer as it is the cause of both of my grandmothers’ deaths at both an early and later age. Those diagnosed or battling cancer deserve to accomplish their dreams, create more everlasting memories, and experience life to the fullest.” Jared AKA “JaredJDub” twitch.tv/jaredjdub “I support cancer research because cancer has taken a lot of family away from me, most recently my father. I do what I can to help make it so other families don’t have to go through what mine has.”
