Wayne Hanson was diagnosed with brain cancer on March 30th, 2011. He needs our help to win this fight!

Wayne is also well recognized by his nickname, "Speed". He is known as the best motorcycle performance tuner in the business. He has traveled the country far and wide delivering horsepower to those that crave it.

Speed along with his sons Jason and Jamie operate a mobile dyno tuning business called Speed's Performance Plus. You may have seen him and his operation at many of the major motorcycle rallies that take place across the country.

Speed is a good man. One we all respect and enjoy. He is quick to smile and laugh. He has energy to burn. If you have ever had the chance to meet him you know what I mean. Speed and his wife Patty make their home in New Market, TN. They live in a peaceful setting and enjoy time with their horses.

On March 30th, 2011 Speed was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. It was surgically removed but the threat of the cancer recurring is very high.

He underwent surgery to remove the tumor at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, TN. While that is a good hospital they do not specialize in treatment of his type of brain cancer.

Therefore, they referred Speed to Duke University for further treatment. That hospital is recognized as one of the best brain cancer hospitals in the United States.

He began chemo and radiation therapy at Duke University in late May. The treatments will continue until late July. He is doing well all things considered. You can read more about his progress on his CaringBridge page.

The good news is that Speed is getting the best treatment money can buy. However, in today's world that kind of treatment costs more than he and his family can muster.

That is where we come in. Through our donations we can give Speed the chance to beat it and return him to the road where he belongs!

The Hanson family sincerely thanks you in advance for making a difference. They are inspired and comforted by your donation and emotional support.
