Steve Huff is Faster Than Cancer

After battling severe back pain for the last 2 years, learning that I have a 3rd kidney last year, and then just before Thanksgiving finding out I have stage 4 Upper Tract Urothelial cancer that has spread to my lymph node and spine, 2020 ended with a BANG!  

The first thing everyone asks is "What can I do?"...  The ability to ask for help or even admit that you need help is one of the hardest things for anyone to do.  Especially someone that has lived their life independently and on their own terms for their whole life.   

Treatment is to initially increase my quality of life, pain reduction, & targeted radiation for the tumor in my L3 vertebrae.  Then we move on to six 3-week cycle rounds of chemotherapy to battle the cancer.  Cancer is very much a moving target, much like racing for speed records, and I know that having the best team is the only way to win.  I have the BEST of the BEST in my team from Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and UW Medical Center.  

Due to the debilitating pain in my spine, work in the shop has been pretty much slow since early fall and almost stopped since the diagnosis in November.  Keeping the race shop open and continuing to work on the electric dragster to do exhibition and the hydroplane to race this summer, even if someone else is in the seat is a part of my mental and physical well being.  I have to keep working, even if some days I'm doing it from the couch.  This is where I need the help and support of my community to keep the lights on and the bills paid.  

We appreciate you all and this team of racers will be battling for the long haul on this one, and WE WILL WIN!
