Ricky Byers Racing – Story of a True Cancer Survivor …

Hi, I’m Ricky Byers and I am a 2 time cancer survivor.  I wake up every morning with a true sense of accomplishment.  I just love life.  Knowing that you can beat cancer is truly a great feeling.

At the age of 33, I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Little did I know that I was about to fight the biggest fight of my life to date. During my 5 year fight against Laryngeal (Throat) cancer, my biggest inspiration came from the 7 time Tour De France winner, Lance Armstrong.


Reading Lance’s story and using all the tools that are available to all cancer patient’s on his website, was an absolute lifesaver for me. Knowing that it is possible to beat this and knowing that people like Lance have spent their lives raising money for research, cures and  helping cancer patient’s find information about their illness  is truly amazing!
The thing that I want most in life now is to help Lance in his fight for Cancer patient’s.
I may never have the opportunity to meet Lance in person, but I am determined to help him in this fight.
My passion has always been in racing.

I have raced for over 20 years in numerous types of automobile racing, but no race in my life will be more important than the race to the finish line for cancer.

I know that a lot of money and awareness can be raised for cancer research.

I know this disease can be fought.

I know that every family will one day be touched by this horrible illness and I want to do everything in my power to help get rid of it.

My goal for 2010 is to be in the Arca Remax  Series or the Camping World Truck Series to raise money for cancer research and awareness. I want to partner with sponsors that share in my belief, that cancer can and should be a thing of the past.

Anyone interested can visit my website www.RickyByersRacing.com or contact Robert Villegas at New Century Marketing (317) 258-0099 or (317) 881-3826.

I look forward to being here at NASCAR Ranting and Raving and I hope you enjoy reading about my racing expereinces both on and off the track.
