ABOUT THE FOUNDER

MediaLibrary#6419
Dylan Healey was just a twelve year old Connecticut middle school student when his grandfather died of pancreatic cancer. Dylan's grandfather was an avid lover of Corvettes and he brought that love to Dylan throughout his life. "Pop Pop" took him to car shows, gave him his winning plaques, his photos and magazines and Dylan helped him take care of his Corvette.

One year later, at the age of thirteen, to keep his grandfather’s memory alive, Dylan founded a non-profit organization called Corvettes 4 Cancer.

Dylan’s mission is to take groundbreaking, inexpensive testing and screenings for pancreatic cancer and make it known and affordable for everyone.  His goal is to educate and promote research for pancreatic cancer. This disease is extremely fast moving and once detected it is usually too late to cure. Patients like Dylan's grandfather typically have about 7 months to survive. With early detection screenings our hope is to put an end to Pancreatic cancer in the near future.

In 2015, Dylan established an ambitious first annual Corvettes4Cancer Road Rally. The Rally takes drivers from Watkins Glen International Speedway to the National Corvette Museum stopping at 4 speedways in 4 days along the way. To learn more click here.
