How was Cruisin’ for a Cure Omaha founded?

 A friend of mine had not had a PSA test, and I kept asking him if he had one.  He kept saying no.  One day in the fall of 2010, I asked him again, and I got the same answer – no.  For some reason when he told me no I remembered a show called Car Crazy with Barry Maquire of Maguire’s Wax.  He did a half hour of Car Crazy on a car show in California called ‘Cruisin for a Cure. This car show is devoted to providing men over 40 with free PSA tests.  So when I got home I Googled Cruisin’ for a Cure and found their website.  I got in touch with Deb Baker who started Cruisin’ for a Cure in 2000.  I asked her if I could use the name and have a car show in Omaha.  She loved the idea and has been helping me ever since.  I joke a little with my friend that he caused me to do a lot of work just so he could get a PSA test.  I need to mention one more person, and that is Earl Taylor.

He and I first met when we were in the 3rd grade at Jackson School.  He also had prostate cancer.  Together Earl and I started the car and motorcycle show on 9-11-11. Earl died July 16, 2012 from complications of his Prostate Cancer. So we will be dedicating the 2012 Car Show to Earl Taylor.

We asked Methodist Hospital Foundation if they would like to be part of Cruisin’ for a Cure Omaha, and they welcomed the idea.  All the proceeds from the Cruisin’ for a Cure Omaha will go to the Estabrook Cancer Center.

What is the Mission of Cruisin’ for a Cure Omaha?

The mission is two-fold.  We want to provide FREE PSA testing from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the show, and we also want to provide education about prostate cancer to take away the stigma.  We put on an annual car and motorcycle show.  This year it is being held on September 8th at the Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha.  The focal point of the show is a FREE PSA test, a simple blood draw, available to every man over40 attending the show.  PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen; a chemical found in the blood which is the first indication of the possibility of prostate cancer.  Testing information is not made public. We try to get as many men as possible tested at the show.

What is your biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge is overcoming the denial about prostate cancer and getting men to take the PSA test.  Prostate cancer can be a very painful disease if caught too late and is usually fatal.  Women are not afraid to get mammograms for breast cancer, but when it comes to prostate cancer, the words ‘incontinence and impotence’ scare men away from being tested.

How do you go about changing men’s attitudes about taking the test?

We are out in the public as an advocate and speak to men not only at car shows and cruise nights, but every opportunity that we have, constantly standing up saying, “Hey, look at us; we survived, and we are fine.”  We just look for a gateway in, something that hits home and then we find a personal way of talking about it with them.  In the end, it’s a huge uphill battle, and it’s more a matter of education.

What is Cruisin’ for a Cure Omaha most proud of?

How much we have accomplished in such a short period of time.  We are very excited about what the future will bring.
