Geriatric Oncology Consortium (GOC) Announces Tampa Bay Road Rally to Raise Awareness for the Treatment of Seniors With Cancer
Date:2/28/2008

BALTIMORE, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Geriatric Oncology Consortium ("The GOC") announced today that it is bringing its annual Road Rally, Driving Out Cancer, to the Tampa Bay area.

The GOC, a not-for-profit organization headquartered in Baltimore, MD, is a national research and educational network of Oncology healthcare providers with a mission of furthering the science of Gero-Oncology. In an effort to raise awareness and funds for this effort, the GOC will present its first Tampa Road Rally and Show, "Driving Out Cancer," on April 26, 2008. This event will showcase antique, vintage, high performance and luxury vehicles from around the country. More than 100 privately-owned or loaned vehicles will be on display. These cars, trucks and motorcycles will follow a parade route starting from The Hut, 514 Channelside Drive in Tampa, but can also be viewed up close at The Salt Rock Grill, 19325 Gulf Boulevard, Indian Shores beginning at approximately 12:00PM. In addition to the vehicles on display at The Salt Rock Grill, the event will feature live music, food, and a number of special activities.

"In a system that practices evidence-based medicine, we need more data to make smarter treatment choices," states Jody Simon, MS, RPh, CEO and Co-founder of the organization. Adds Simon, "With over 60% of all cancers appearing in people over the age of 65, and the continued aging of our population, the problem will only become greater and more pressing from both a national health and economic perspective." Lodovico Balducci, MD, head of the Senior Adult Program at Moffitt Cancer Center and GOC Co-Founder, echoes these sentiments. "What most people don't know is that the greatest risk factor for getting cancer is getting older," says Balducci. "There i
