Thank you for visiting my fundraiser page. My name is James Ford. In 2015, I lost my wife of 17 years, Cari Ann Ford, as her body finally succumbed to the multiple cancers and treatments she had fought through for 43 years. Since her and I discovered stupidcancer in 2012, our lives changed so much. We learned to squeeze everything we could out of life. The stupidcancer tag line "Get Busy Living!" became our mission. Even our children noticed the difference. I will be forever grateful to stupidcancer for showing us what was possible with what little time we didn't realize was remaining. Since her passing, I have made it a goal to spread the word about stupidcancer and the support that exists for those affected by young adult cancer. A large part of that is actually getting survivors and care givers to stupidcancer events. So "Cari Ann's Caravan" was created, in her honor, to help others experience the same life changing events that we had discovered. In October 2015 I put together the first "Cari Ann's Caravan" to OMG!West 2015. Since that trip we have over helped over 35 survivors and care givers with transportation to or lodging during the stupidcancer OMG! and CancerCon events. Please support me in this cause and help me get the next group of young adults to CancerCon 2017!!! By supporting our stupidcancer crowdrise fundraiser, you can help us get them there. Let's get the word out!!!
This year's Cari Ann's Caravan to CancerCon 2017 will be stopping in the following cities:
