Rick Horton and his brother co-founded in honor of their mother Donna White who died of cervical cancer. “My mother died on the Wednesday before Mother’s Day,” said Rick Horton. That was in 1996. He and his brother took a motorcycle trip to clear their heads after that, all along they talked about her life, her death and how much they missed her. Cancer really sucks they said. was born right then. “Cancer Sucks actually became my therapy,” said Rick Horton.
