PRLog - March 2, 2012 - RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. -- M&P Speed Apparel™ has joined forces with Drive Away Cancer a 501c3 with a limited edition tee shirt that supports the cause. Featuring M&P's™ signature vintage style, the shirt features Grace, a classic Austin Healey that is much more than just a old car, but a rolling metaphor for cancer survivors.
Originally intended to raise money and support for cancer awareness, Drive Away Cancer has unexpectedly evolved into a rolling memorial for cancer victims and an inspiration to those fighting the disease. Drive Away Cancer aimed to stop cancer in its tracks by taking to the backroads and highways to show people that cancer is only a speed bump rather than the end of the road.
Drive Away Cancer was the brainchild of a vintage racer described as “having the heart of a lion and the brains of a scarecrow” who wanted nothing more than to take a barely running sixty year-old British sports car and take it for a drive from coast to coast to coast to show that cancer can only slow but never stop someone with a mission and the drive to continue going.
But as the tired driver and even more tired car traveled across America, thousands inscribed the names of loved ones on its body to serve as a reminder of how personally cancer affects us all, while others taped pictures to the dash hoping to give those lost one last ride on the open road.
With each purchase of a $24.00 tee $10.00 goes directly to support Drive Away Cancer, M&P™ received a flood of orders just 30 minuets after putting the tee shirts up on their and Drive Away Cancers Facebook pages.
