Gage Driver(no relation to Donald), 8-yr old boy from town, has been fighting brain cancer for some time now but is losing the battle & has little time left.
He made a bucket list of things he wanted to do before he dies(sad that an 8-yr old has to make one). One was to get ear pierced(done). Another was to talk to Cena(done this morning!!).
If u wish to read story, here's link(link to Cena's call is posted).

He's a great kid...very sad!!!
He met the Vikings a while back.
He got misc signed stuff(ball, jersey, posters,...).

He was on the news a few months ago, too.

You know with all the stories in the news of famous people doing things that negatively reflect upon themselves we seriously need to promote people like this that go out of their way to do things like this.

Sad thing...mother posted on Facebook that he looked up & asked her to kill him so he could go to heaven & quit sufferin'.

Can't believe he'd say that.
My wife balled when she read it!!

Nothing like a 31 year old guy tearing up at his desk at work this morning. I cannot imagine what the parents are going through or have went through. My heart hurts for them and really want to go hug my kids now.

Visitation's this afternoon.
Funeral will be at the high school.
The family needed a huge place for it since the community
(even a few Vikings) will be attending.
John Carlson's from town.

The sad thing this really brings to light is that 33,000 children die anonymously from easily preventable maladies and no one seems to care for them. Its always the 1 poor kid who gets the camera. Why not go out and volunteer some time for people who could really need it in some form.
