I called a good friend and former neighbor today and he told me that he has Lung Cancer and is not doing well, worst part is he didn't smoke or party it up.

Now a little history on this guy, he use to live up the street from me and always had hot rod cars. I use to ride my bicycle ( I was 12) by his house almost everyday and he would be working on his Corvette or his GTO Judge or something. One day I stopped and started talking to him, well that grew into a friendship and he started letting me help him do things on his cars.

Now I have always loved cars but once I started hanging around and he started teaching me how to work on them my passion for cars grew from there. When I turned 15 I told him that I wanted a 1957 Chevy so he helped me look for a car, well I ended up buying a 1955 chevy and a motor and helped me bring it home. He helped me completely put that thing together and get it running, those of you who went to school with me remember the car.

Needless to say he was like a second father too me, I am praying that these three rounds of Chemo dry up his tumor because the doctors have told him that it is inoperable, and he says that he is in bad shape and is in a wheel chair and can't walk.

Please send him some prayers he really needs it !!

Thanks

Update

Well over the past several months Don had gone through extensive chemotheropy and the doctors say that the tumor has gone down and it looks like he going to make a full recovery. Good things really do happen to good people :happy0030:
