A few months ago we put out a call for help in granting an expedited wish. Sheldon’s osteosarcoma was taking its toll and his hope and spirits were low. Sheldon’s wish to customize his truck was granted on Saturday, May 17 only one week after he was told his cancer was terminal. With the help of Custom Truck in Spokane and many wonderful donors, he received a bumper/grill, light bars, steps, air intake system, stereo, and more!!
For a moment in time, Sheldon was able to just be a 20 year old boy again and not worry about cancer. At one point he even grabbed his new bumper and said, “All I know is I can pretty much hit anything with this now”. Due to the progression of the cancer, Sheldon lost the use of both his legs the day before his wish was granted. His best friend Robbie was there to chauffeur Sheldon away from his party in style. Sheldon was not about to let cancer stop him from enjoying his new ride and hand controls were installed shortly after. He is now driving his own truck with his friends and family.
To top off a very touching weekend, Sheldon married the love of his life, Athina the day after his wish was granted- embracing life to the fullest.
