What you need to know:
Casey died that his last wish became a reality: he has managed to raise millions of dollars to alleviate the medical debt of other patients.
And in the section about who is chopping onions?…. Casey Ryan McIntyre was a 38-year-old woman who sadly passed away on November 12 from ovarian cancer.
But before he left, he started a campaign to raise money to end the medical debt of other cancer patients. In just a few days she is almost there, which means there are millions of dollars available for other people’s medical care.
Casey’s campaign has raised millions of dollars
Casey died on November 12 from stage 4 ovarian cancer. She was an editor at Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House, and lived in New York with her family.
Before dying, he asked his family to publish a thread on their X account when the time came to let them know his last wish: Help with medical bills for other cancer patients in need.
“To celebrate my life, I have arranged to purchase the medical debts of others and then destroy them. “I am very lucky to have had access to the best medical care at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and I am very aware that many people in our country do not have access to good care.”it reads.
But how did he do it? It all has to do with the charity called RIP Medican Dedtwhich is based in Long Island City.
The organization explains that more than 100 million Americans struggle with medical debt due to some type of condition. This is one in three.
What RIP does is buy medical debt in packages, meaning millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. Once they buy them, they release the patients from them, without further ado, the people who need it most.
The debt packages are purchased with the donations that the organization receives, meaning that for every dollar donated means $100 of ‘relief’ on medical debt.
