The Good News: Young Cancer Survivor Feeds Thousands through Food Truck
"I love good food. My dad calls me a foodie!"
13-year-old Lucas Hobbs was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in January. He went through chemotherapy and radiation, which his father says was "really tough." Neighbors brought them food while he was at the hospital.
So when the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached Lucas, he asked to work in a food truck. He could've had anything, but he decided to serve people food at St. Paul's Dorothy Day Center; the final stop on a six-stop tour that feeds the community in Minnesota.
"He made my day," said Luz Moreno, who was served a burrito from Lucas. "I'm happy. I'm going to be happy the whole day. That little boy has got a big heart."
Lucas is in remission now, and says that he wants to be a chef or a police officer when he grows up.
