Justin Myers has been on call to help racers since 2020 as he is a member of Sebring International Raceway AMR Safety Team. Today, Justin and his family need our support. Stepping up to the plate to lead the charge is BSI Racing and Steven Clemons Jr. as they are inviting you to join them to help support Eli’s journey and treatment with Neuroblastoma cancer during the upcoming round of the Toyota GR Cup North America event in Sebring, Florida.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to race for Eli Myers and the “Chasin’ a Dream’ initiative,” explained Steven Clemons Jr. “We hope to not only have our best results of the season but to also help raise money to help Eli and his family.”
Currently, Eli is undergoing five cycles of chemo before his surgery to remove the tumor in his abdomen in November. After that, Eli will need to go to Miami for a vigorous stem cell transplant which will require the family to live in Miami for a three-month minimum. This family is full of love, as they have three other little boys, but this also makes this situation extremely difficult. While Eli is hospitalized the family will have tremendous hurdles to overcome financial burdens and the travel and living accommodations from Jupiter to Miami, Florida during this time.
Shea Holbrook added, “No parent should have to divide time between their children under these circumstances. No child should have to feel divided from their parents or siblings during hard and uncertain times.”
Through the Chasin’ A Dream Foundation, a fundraiser has been set up to support the Myers family during this time. All donations will go to the Myers to help elevate their financial burdens, help find a short-term place to live in Miami and support the family so they can keep Eli’s treatment and recovery the priority.
Ways to support include:
- Donations through Chasin’ A Dream www.Chasinadream.org
- BSI Racing and Steven Clemons Jr are looking to raise a minimum of $40,000 through www.Chasinadream.org
