Cure Cancer Buzz Team Brief
Cure Cancer Buzz Team CompetitionCure Cancer Buzz Team Competition
As many know I’ve bet the proverbial farm on two BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals): and Cancer Starter is a REVOLUTION in how we fund cancer research and the bigger of the two bets. should be live and accepting donations by tomorrow (Wednesday 10.16).

We need your HELP!
Please share the revolution with your social following. We also want to quantify who is contributing. We will ask three Cure Cancer Buzz Team members to become Buzz Team Captains at the end of our first round of cancer research campaigns (mid-November).

Add $4.00 to being a Cure Cancer Buzz Team Captain and you can get coffee at Starbucks, but recognition of your social media powers never hurts one’s KLOUT or resume and you will have helped save lives (mine chief among them lol).

Captains will be awarded based on these factors:

  • Cure Cancer Buzz Team Klout Reports (this is new today).
  • Use of Topsy to see and credit social support.
  • Use of hashtag #ccslaunch or #ccBuzzTeam.
  • Evaluation of a 3 Judge Panel (working on who the judges will be).

Each Captain will have a special badge and receive a Cure Cancer Buzz Team Varsity Jacket (with Captain clearly stitched into the jacket). The buzz team is currently at 50 members. We will add no more than 50 more Buzz Team members since teams bigger than 100 members become hard to manage.

There are two categories COMPANIES and WIZARDS. All 3 awards can come from one category (but it is highly unlikely). Captains will receive their awards before Thanksgiving. is LIVE now and full of cool “cure cancer” products. is also a platform where we hope to nurture the next generation of “cancerpreneurs”.

As soon as we are LIVE on I will Tweet and update the Buzz Team.

Resources: VideosCure Cancer StarterOne of the most amazing things I’ve discovered about Cure Cancer Starter (so far) is watching the videos. UNC has a cancer clinic the small African country of Malawi.Malawi has more cancer than almost anywhere on earth and UNC’s clinic is the ONLY place for care for 15.9M people.
The clinic in Malawi is asking for $10,000 for a centrifuge that will save thousands of lives.Generations of people will be alive because of the BUZZING we do to help the single cancer clinic in a country of almost 16M people save lives.This is a single story. There are going to be many, many more.Also, can’t tell you how EMPOWERING it is for me as a cancer patient to see behind the cancer research curtain.
When I see, hear and feel my oncologist Dr. Hank Van Deventer’s passion and commitment the sense we can and will cure cancer is very strong. – Launches Monday 10.7

Cure Cancer Varsity Jackets (NEW and EXCLUSIVE)
My brother Drew and I have created a unique idea called Cure Cancer Varsity Jackets. We got the idea from a letterman’s jacket I wore at Central Junior High School.The jacket told a story of the sports I played like football (yes that is me #51).
When I wore the jacket I had a sense of accomplishment and invincibility. My friends loved to wear it too.Drew and I wanted to recreate that experience for cancer patients.What is cancer but the toughest sport I’ve ever played. Much like playing football for Roger Stenz at Central the Big C requires a plan, a team and courage.
We’ve found the highest quality varsity jackets and we’ve created a way to modify the jacket to tell a cancer patient, their friends’ or family’s journey.Ribbon on the C can be matched to most cancer colors.
We’ve also created “TEAMS” including: Friend, Family, Survivor. Team names can be stitched into the C.Finally we created 2 LIMITED EDITION varsity jackets for FOMS (friends of martin) and COACH.Limited edition jackets are more expensive, provide a higher tax deduction (all jackets provide 25% deductions on the price and shipping is free). Prices range from $275 to $1200 (Coach).
When I’ve had chemo I’ve been impressed by the instant kinship in the room. Drew and I wanted a way to create that sense of connection out at a restaurant, movie or grocery store.
Buzz Team

Two $400 Limited Edition FOM (Friends of Martins) jackets will be awarded to two Buzz Teamers for outstanding HELP during October.
One Jacket award will be voted on by the team and I will award the other. These will be FOM jackets #1 & #2.
