Men On A Mission: Forget Cancer Now

A man on a mission. Help from his friends. Jaymes Vaughan is working around the clock to raise money to keep his Dad’s cancer treatments going. He wants his Dad to feel taken care of, and safe. Vaughan and fellow Chippendale, James Davis were on this season of The Amazing Race. The finale aired last weekend, Jaymes and James came in 2nd place.

They didn’t win the million dollars they had hoped for, but… they DID win the hearts of people around the world.  The entire season, the two said they were in the race to win a million dollars, and give it to Jaymes’ Dad. That was the goal. When they came in second, they were gracious, emotional, and appreciative of the opportunity. This did not go unnoticed.

I was with the two on finale day, and last night at a fundraising event at The Act at The Palazzo. I have never seen anything like it. Focused  Prepared. Lap top open, phone charged for tweeting. Press in the early morning, fundraising until 3 a.m. – they are committed and they have hearts of gold. They are so appreciative of every single dollar that is donated to help Ed Vaughan.  Just one prescription cost $2,500.

On The Amazing Race, the duo did win a pair of Ford vehicles. James Davis really wanted to win one for his mother who needs a car. He told me he got all the information this week and his Mom will be able to pick out what she wants at the dealer near her home. He was thrilled! I could feel his excitement.

Last night’s fundraiser was called KISS FOR A CURE. It was organized by friend Bryan Chan to raise money for the American Cancer Society and Forget Cancer Now. What a great night. Friends, locals, and many of Jaymes and James’ fans came to The Act to show support and donate. Fellow Amazing Race contestant, Lexi Beerman was there too. There were performances by Fantasy’s Lorena Peril, The Las Vegas Tenors, The Show in The Sky, and more.

Hats off to Jaymes and James. They are the real deal. There is no denying the two men are gorgeous and fit. It’s part of their profession. But, it’s heartwarming to see them support each other, and be proud to show love for their family and friends. It’s contagious, really.
