MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) -- Some mobile apps are used for entertainment, created by developers looking to make their mark with the next great trend. For three Morehead men, their app will give hope for brain cancer patients.

When Lowell Thompson's sister, Teresa Mason, was suddenly diagnosed with the most rare and deadliest form of brain cancer, he knew their time together was limited.

With a wide support group behind her, Lowell and his friends, Wesley Mason and David Boarman, collaborated to try to help Mason hang onto her brain function as long as possible.

And so, SeeWord was conceived.

Boarman said Wesley had graphic and web design contacts in Los Angeles that agreed to help with coding overall design of the game and within a few months, the group had created a word game available to anyone in the world for free plays and downloads.
