Since putting Trucker into hospice care, his pain has gotten to the point where he can only tolerate a few minutes outside. Family members and friends have been coming to visit with the Dukes and spend time together enjoying precious moments. There have been a few times where Trucker wanted to go outside, and his daddy, Joshua, had to hold him the entire time and for only a few minutes each time. Team Trucker- Trucker Dukes Supporters put together the #TruckerToughChallenge to raise awareness for the #morethan4 campaign; Children’s cancer research receives only 4% of the total funds for cancer research. To participate in the challenge people have been asked to post pictures of themselves with a “tough” face. To date there have been a couple thousand #TruckerToughChallenge posts on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with everybody from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to Kurt Suzuki posting their “Tough” faces. There is a new T-shirt fundraising campaign, with 100% of the funds going to the Dukes Family. Also, a new non-profit called www.uvsc.org was just started in time for a campaign for the Dukes ‘Ohana and Trucker Boy. All donations made before February 20, 2017, 5:00pm HST (10:00pm EST) up to $10,000 will be matched 100% with the transaction fees being covered. If you feel led to give please click the link above.
Please pray for Trucker to be healed from Neuroblastoma in Jesus Name, for the cancer to be complete eradicated from his body. Pray for the Dukes to be strengthened in this time, to be encouraged in the LORD and by others around them. Please the Updates below the photos.
(Joshua) Take a good, hard, f*#%;&@ look! This is what pediatric cancer is all about. It is heartbreaking 💔 It is painful! It devastates families! And when you think you… take a step forward, you feel like your groin just got punched.👊🏽 Research to find a cure is severely underfunded, despite the fact that @americancancersociety loves to use children in their adds. 4% of funding is not enough 🖕🏽!!! This guys has been through so much and continues to wage war despite the fact he can’t move on his own because his right leg and testicular swelling are just so inflamed. Please keep him in your prayers. Please continue to spread awareness of pediatric cancer. Please continue pediatric cancer ACTION! Thank you for all #TeamTrucker has done and continues to do. Love you guys. #FuckCancer
