ModBargains.com | Car of the Month Award Comes with an Amazing Story - Please Read!
ModBargains has been doing Car of the Month Awards for customers' cars for quite some time now. Up until this point we haven't had a story that has resonated with us as deeply as Ken's. Ken is a very strong man, and he has to be, having five beautiful daughters isn't necessarily the easiest thing for a father to handle, but as of late, it became even more difficult. While Ken was deployed overseas in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, one of his daughters, Macey, was diagnosed with an inoperable cancerous brain tumor. Macey, who is now 20 years old, continues to have chemotherapy treatments, and radiation treatments to continue to get better, and her father Ken, continues to fight his way for a cure
Daughters, Alyssa and Maranda race their father's super modified Chevy Camaro to raise awareness for their sister Macey, and they not only raise more awareness, but they also very often run competitive times. Both daughters have posted such competitive times as 12.6 and 12.7 in the quarter mile; they are quite the naturals when it comes to drag racing as well. The best time put down so far is a staggering 11.6@120MPH. Here's a video of Marada racing against a 650HP supercharged Camaro.
Ken, and wife, Angela, have five daughters, Erica, Alyssa, Maranda, Kylah, and of course Macey are all amazing people who remain positive during this tough time. Their raising awareness and their unfaltering support for Macey has become a huge staple in all of their lives, and they further continue to touch the lives of the people who hear of their story.
To further raise awareness we urge you to please take a look at Macey's journey at http://www.miraclemoo.blogspot.com/ and to also visit the Northern Utah Camaro Club on Facebook as they will be posting drive events where they will be doing drives for cancer awareness along with dyno days where all the proceeds go to a multitude of different charities including the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah and of course the Charity to help with expenses that insurances don't cover for Macey. If you have a moment of your time, anything will help her and Macey's journey to become better, so please visit the following Facebook pages to share your support for her and the Steckelberg Family:
Please show your support, you would be very surprised to see how much a simple post can do. It allows more people to read her story which will give the Steckelberg family more support in these tough times. And of course, Macey will be reading these posts as well so please post up a message for her! :thumbsup:
