Debbie Baker is the President of Cruisin’ For A Cure, the nation’s largest single day charity car show that raises money to find a cure for prostate cancer. She started the organization when her husband was diagnosed with cancer. Next to skin cancer, prostate cancer kills more men than any other cancer. Cruisin’ For A Cure provides men with free prostate cancer screening that catches the disease early and saves lives. Her event brings in more than 3,500 hot rods, trucks, customs, muscle cars, daily drivers, old and new. The cars cruise all day inside the OC Fair & Events Center in Costa Mesa, California. This year’s Meet & Greet will feature Chip Foose, Troy Ladd, Chris Jacobs, Ed Iskendarian otherwise known as Isky, Carson Lev, Larry Wood and others at the Meguiar’s Hangar. Debbie’s day job is in real estate.
What better way to get men to get screened for cancer by using their toys to lure them to the event.
CAREER & LIFE CHALLENGES
My husband was diagnosed with cancer and I realized that there was a lot of screening for breast cancer, but no one was mentioning ways to make men aware of their risk for prostate cancer, so I decided to do something about it. I started a car show as a fun way to raise awareness.
