Peter Pan teams with 15-40 Connection to spread cancer awareness

Posted on August 4, 2015

15-40 Connection, the non-profit organization empowering people with the lifesaving advantage of early cancer detection, partnered with Peter Pan Bus Lines to empower to New England commuters to recognize cancer symptoms and detect cancer earlier. The partnership in the form of a wrapped bus starts a new cancer conversation with commuters by asking the question, “Would you recognize a cancer symptom?” The bus will be used on a daily route service across the Northeast.

The bus features young adult cancer survivors who are sharing their stories to help others recognize cancer symptoms and why it is important to be an active member of your health care team. One of the survivors is Dave McGrath. He was diagnosed with cancer in his brain at age 18.

“I’m alive today because I went to the doctor right away when I noticed a health change that wasn’t improving and got diagnosed early,” said McGrath, who also regularly goes on the road with 15-40 Connection to share his story in schools, colleges and workplaces. “I speak for 15-40 Connection because I think it’s my duty as a survivor to raise awareness for early cancer detection.”

“This bus will drive through many communities and major cities. The early cancer detection message could be encountered during someone’s daily commute or while boarding the bus. That is important and could help save lives” said Peter Pan Bus Lines’ Chairman/CEO Peter Picknelly.
