Matthew 25:35-36, 40 KJV
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me….‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

The death of a loved one from cancer is devastating, and for survivors looking for solace in their grief, giving back to others in the community – especially those with cancer and their families – offers a tremendous sense of comfort and purpose.
Classic Cars for the Cure is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to providing care packages, cleaning services, food delivery and relevant services to those affected by cancer. Classic Cars for the Cure was established following the death of the founders’ relative Lawanda Nute from a rare form of breast cancer. The family rallied together to help provide emotional and practical support for their loved one. Yet they found that there were others with cancer who did not have the kind of support needed to provide a comfortable quality of life throughout the illness. The resources, time and commitment it takes to care for those who have health challenges are not available to everyone, and those family members who are able to provide that support often need help.
For several years, Michael Nute, co-founder of Classic Cars for the Cure with his wife, Paula, has appreciated vintage cars – restoring his own classic vehicles and attending shows which highlight the history and artistry behind “old cars.” As a member of a Chevrolet car club, Michael knows that public interest in the classics is tremendous. Classic Cars for the Cure combines the interest in classic cars with a desire to help others.
