CCR Anyone?

My name is Dean, I was diagnosed two years ago with a very rare form of pancreatic cancer. I was givin 30 days to live. After surgery they gave me 50% chance to make it longer than a month. Today I'm here because of a never give up attitude and a hell of a lot of support.

So I ordered a 14 1LE, should be here no later than June at the very latest. I would like to know if anyone would be interested to join me , help organize , a Camaro Cancer Relay (CCR), with all proceeds going to a cancer research that we all vote on?

I have no problem carrying the "torch" from say Seattle Wa to Denver Co, and handing it off to another member to take and so on? If organized correctly with social media we could post times we would come through cities and have members cruise with us as long as they can , and have the "torch" brought back full circle! And he'll if we could get some vendor support , I might just wrap my car for the occasion and take it the whole way! Ya I know 6000 miles, but dam it would be way better than the hot rod power tour! And what a great way to see all of the best camaros around!

If anyone might be interested or have ideas please post and let me know!

Wow, that's amazing Dean! Congratulations!

Unfortunately my car has already come down to the Bay Area from Portland for postgrad, otherwise I'd love to join. But if it does route around to california...

Also, you might want to post this in the General Discussion subforum as well

I'd participate for an east coast portion. My wife (29 years old) has been battling stage 4 breast cancer for the last 9 months. 9 months of straight chemo and she's still got a good attitude

From a photo shoot she did with saks 5th avenue.

Mod- could we relocate this to the general thread to possibly get more eyes on it?

Dean - could you possibly change the thread title to camaro cancer relay (ccr) so folks know what it's all about?

Keep fighting Dean!

My mother is in remission from stage 4 breast cancer. It took both her breasts and all the treatment really took a toll.

I would be honored to help with this event. Please let me know what I can do.

Best wishes,

Jared

If this comes through Pennsylvania I would love to participate. We could line up all the cars on Clay Ave, in Jeannette PA and have a lunch at one of the restaurants that just expanded on Clay. The city will even allow us to shut down the street to have a car show where we could attract all car guys in the area and set up a booth to take donations. I can run this past the mayor, I'm headed to City Hall at some point tomorrow anyway.

It would be very cool too, to set up a bunch of GoPro Cameras in/on the cars participating and record the events. Make a DVD and sell that to collect more proceeds.

So far on my end, it looks like people in Jeannette are interested in joining in. If we do set up a day for a car show in town someone suggested getting a band/dj to perform. I know a few bands in the area that would love to. We also have all the music equipment right in down town to do it. The Jeannette Townhall Facebook page has made a post about it to gauge interest and so far it's pretty positive.

I was also thinking we could make a weekend of it here in south west pa if the cruise comes out this far. We could have a track day at The Pittsburgh Raceway Park on a Thursday, Friday have the car show in Jeannette, then Saturday morning crash the weekly car show in Irwin and head out in the afternoon to continue the journey. I also have family that works for the local news paper so that we could peak interest in the event.

Congrats Dean! Keep that fight attitude!

We would definitely be in for this! I am also a survivor of Colon Cancer from 4 years ago w/ a re-occurrence in sept. Fighting it now with radiation/chemo. Surgery removed the tumor at MD Anderson this time and saved my life for my daughters(7 mo & 9yrs) with my wife standing by my side all the way! My father was diagnosed late last year with lung cancer. I also lost an Aunt and a grandfather in the last two years from cancer. Now a second mother to me is terminal with months to live from colon cancer.

This disease needs to be stopped and this would be a great way to help bring awareness and fight for others!

Let's make this happen!

Even though I currently live in NC, I am originally from Orange County New York.

So, if you do go through PA and NY, count me in! I'll drive to Western PA to hook up.

One of my best friends has a wife who is a breast cancer survivor of 6 years now and another of my friends survived a brain tumor.
