Mark Ritchie NASCAR Trip



My brother Mark has been battling cancer.  I was fortunate enough to be a 100% match for a stem cell transplant.  We are now 10 months post-transplant.  The good news is that his body has accepted 100% of my stem cells which is awesome.  The challenge he is having is producing enough red blood cells to accelerate the healing process.  The Stem cells are not producing the cells as quickly as they had hoped and this poses a big challenge for him.  He still has a rough road ahead and the outcome is uncertain at this point but we remain hopeful.

Mark is a huge NASCAR fan and my brother David and I are organizing a trip to the upcoming race at Texas Motor Speedway the weekend of November 4th.   We want to make this a memorable trip so we are having all of the brothers, six of us and his 3 boys join us.  Mark cannot tolerate riding is a car very long as he is in constant pain from the side effects of the chemotherapy so we rented an RV to make the trip more comfortable for him. 

The funds will be used to offset the costs of the trip which includes the RV and a special executive package that gets him VIP access to the race and events leading up to the race.  

Any support that you can provide would be greatly appreciated as we want this to be an outstanding and very meaningful trip for him.
