Scott Peterson and Roush Performance: Fighting Cancer in the Fast Lane
In 2007, at the age of 26, Scott was diagnosed with Stage 3 diffuse large B-cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and given a 50% chance to live past the next 5 years. On top of this, he and his wife were informed that as a result, they had a very slim chance of having children. After going through 8 extensive rounds of chemotherapy, Scott finally entered in remission. Today, Scott is celebrating 10 years of remission with his wife, Jaci, and their two young daughters, Harper and Nora!
Since his initial remission birthday, Scott Peterson has been a man on a mission to give back to the organization that helped fund the research that saved his life, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Over the last 10 years Scott has been creating events to raise the money needed to fund research that will go on to save the lives of current and future Leukemia and Lymphoma patients. For his efforts, Scott recently learned that he has been nominated for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man of the Year Campaign. Congrats, Scott!
Last week I was contacted by Eric Peterson, you guessed it, Scott’s brother. In a short Facebook note, Eric told me about Scott and how he has been nominated for the LLS ‘Man of the Year’ award due to his decade of commitment. Turns out, Eric Peterson is the Team Manager for Roush Fenway Racing’s NASCAR Xfinity Series and was able to help his brother partner with Roush Performance. Scott’s organization, Team Remission10, Wheelhouse Foundation and ROUSH Performance, have teamed up in an effort to raise over $250,000 for the LLS by auctioning off a brand-new 670hp, ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang.
One lucky winner gets to drive this home:
