Dear Joe,

My name is Sean Jakucenis and I am writing to thank the American Youth Motorsports Team and the Doug Foley Drag Racing School for the neat racing stuff you sent to me.  I have the dragster piston on a shelf in my bedroom that I keep all of my racing things on.   I put it right next to the model of the funny car you also gave me.  I wear the T-shirt from the racing school to bed except when my mom makes me give it to her to wash.

It means a lot that you did this for me.  I have just finished three years of chemotherapy for leukemia at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.   I was diagnosed when I just turned four years old.  My mom says I loved to watch car racing when it was on television when I was only three.  Having cancer, I was always too weak to play sports, so my interest in cars and racing took over.  I can’t wait until AYMT starts letting us race in the junior dragsters.  I think that would be the coolest thing in the world to do.

Please let me know when I can race with you.  I hope it is soon.  Thanks again to you and Doug for everything.

 

Sincerely,

Sean Daniel Jakucenis
