Team One Cure

Every once in a great while, a project comes along that cannot be ignored. Tony, the Board & the staff of our foundation had the chance to meet the scientists and veterinarians from the Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center. The center houses the world’s largest group of scientists studying and treating naturally occurring cancer in pets. And, the Center has trained more surgical, medical and radiation oncologists than any other veterinary institution.

We were simply “wowed”, for lack of a better word, with their innovative approach to discovering treatments for cancer in pets that translate directly to cancer treatments for people. The overall concept is “Comparative Oncology” which has gained traction in the past decade and is currently offering amazing treatments for people and pets alike. There are several leading institutions throughout the U.S. working alongside CSU Flint Animal Cancer Center. And, it fits perfectly with the mission of Tony’s foundation!

Tony and his foundation came away wanting to help spread the word about the amazing work being done to battle cancer – a disease that impacts virtually everyone. Borrowing the Flint Animal Cancer Center’s own branding of “One Cure”, our foundation has established Team One Cure as a multi-faceted program with two primary goals: (1) Raise awareness of the availability and potential of comparative oncology; and (2) raise funds to find cures for cancer in both people and pets.

Faces of One Cure

Cancer directly or indirectly impacts everyone. We each have a family member, a friend, a colleague, a neighbor, a pet or someone special in our lives who has been diagnosed with cancer. And, whether in remission, having beaten the disease, currently undergoing treatment or having lost the battle, we all seek a way to honor or memorialize these brave people and pets.

In February, the foundation will introduce its “Faces of One Cure” Program which is a fun, interactive way to upload a photograph of your special someone which, combined with others, will create a mosaic photograph. A modest donation ($10.00) is all it takes to join the conversation and be part of a unique program that will raise thousands of dollars for cancer research and programs. Funds will be awarded as a TSF Grant to not only the Flint Animal Cancer Center but also to the TSF Grant Partners having programs and services for children impacted by cancer.

Our unique system will allow everyone to find their specific photograph(s) and to share them on social media to tell your friends why you are a member of Tony’s Team One Cure!

The Softer Side of Tony

Wholey Smoke! Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart is best known as a highly successful competitor on the race track. His racing career – having started at the tender age of 7 – would need multiple library shelves to hold the trivia, stories & trophies. The easiest way to help you understand his depth as a racer is to simply have you read his bio summary.

A more quiet side of Tony – but nonetheless impactful – is persona as a philanthropist. He began his foundation in August 2003 for the single purpose of helping organizations which serve the children, animals and drivers he cares about. Through December 2015, more than $6.5 million in monetary grants have been given to amazing charities operating in 41 of the 50 United States. What makes an organization stand out to receive a Tony Stewart Foundation Grant? Heart. Compassion. Healing. Joy. Laughter. Teamwork. As we work toward selecting the 2016 recipients, I hope you’ll take time to be inspired by reading about our 2015 TSF “Grant Accelerator” Partners, our 2015 TSF “Tony’s Crew” Partners and our 2015 Board Grant Partners.

Smoke will hang up his driving gloves in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series following the November 20, 2016 Ford EcoBoost 400 Championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. But, our favorite racer will continue his legacy of philanthropy through his foundation which reflects his love for children and animals, as well as for his racing family and community.

Lap Leader Ambassador

Dr. Joseph F. Kasper

For the past decade or more I’ve been an avid fan of Smoke. His style of driving, personality and especially his courage as a business owner – like myself -has strengthened my dedication as a fan.

I don’t follow a lot of different sports – primarily NASCAR and a bit of the IndyCar Series. Unfortunately being in Utah there are few opportunities to actually attend a racing event without 6 or more hours of travel. I did certainly enjoy attending the June 2016 race at Sonoma that Tony won!! As Tony said jokingly when we met, “There are people that live in Utah?”

It’s sure enjoyable to follow Tony – especially through his Twitter posts – but also through his Facebook page. It was in these exchanges a few years ago that I learned about his charitable foundation. I took time to check out what the foundation did and was hooked for a few simple reasons.

The causes Tony chose to support – children, animals and drivers – are close to my heart as an animal lover, a family physician and a racing fan. Secondly, you can tell a lot about an organization from the people doing the day-to-day work. I’ve had the chance to personally meet Tony’s mom – Pam – and the executive director – Joni – who are dedicated and committed to making sure the foundation maximizes the funds that directly go to the charities serving these kids, animals, and injured drivers. They are excellent people with character, honesty and integrity that is critical to any charity I would choose to financially support.

Alicia Utter KiltsThis is so awesome, can't say enough great about it. In 1997 my first lab Koko who was just 4 years old, was diagnosed with lymphoma. A local vet that had done a local study on it, took his case on, he made it 2 years before it spread to his chest cutting off his airway. She learned a lot and at the time he was one of the few to make it that long. She learned a lot and so did others in the area and at conferences. Flash forward Christmas 2010 I was devastated to learn my therapy dog had gotten Hermangio Sarcoma, no way to reverse it. Some odd signs showed up before but it didn't click. It was on her spleen and heart. 2 days after Christmas I lost my best friend and companion. Somehow a year and a pain I can't forget. Every bit we learn from them is one step closer, we get to helping both people and animals and one day, I truly believe we won't have to face the thought of losing a young child, family member or our beloved pets to this horrible disease. Awesome video, great sponsorship, thanks for all you do.
