Team Nancy and our Local Warrior of Hope

What an honor it is to have such amazing people right here in our back yard doing incredible things!

Cancer has a way making a mention in our everyday conversations. Who doesn’t know someone impacted by cancer or currently undergoing treatment? Tam Driscoll has been fighting for others for the past 15 years as an avid volunteer for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Now Tam is taking her campaign to a national level, having been nominated as a National All Star Candidate for LLS representing Oregon. She is the first to represent our state in this all-star campaign and the first in the Pacific Northwest. But going beyond our Oregon border, her campaign is going worldwide with the team’s motto: CANCER KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES. NEITHER DOES OUR DETERMINATION. With this moniker, the goal is to secure a donation from every state and continent. Only three weeks into a 10 week campaign, her team of 25 volunteers have secured donations from as far as Russia and Malaysia.

The team has checked off 22 out of 50 states (yes, Oregon is one of the 22) and four out of seven
continents. Not only is this a nice lesson in geography but a nice lesson in showing how much the world cares. Let’s show them how much Gresham cares. In support of the Oregon All Star Team, Gresham Ford will match any donation dropped off at Gresham Ford or made online if you put “Gresham Ford” in the comment line, up to $500 by April 15. Also, for every set of tires purchased until April 15, Gresham Ford will donate $25.  Just mention Tam’s name and we’ll make sure she gets it!  If you’d like to see what states and continents remain to be conquered, check out the team’s home page at for the complete list.

So, we stand with Tam and Team Nancy pushing towards this ultimate goal!  Won’t you join us?  Take a moment today and go to and help us push the dial closer to a cure!
