Last year, Don Bouvet was staring a grave cancer diagnosis in the face.
Today, he is alive and well thanks to President Trump!
As first reported by Townhall, President Trump’s generous donation of $10,000 to Bouvet saved his life and he is happy to report that he is 100% cancer free!
Bouvet’s son, Shane, was a volunteer on President Trump's presidential campaign. After meeting with Trump the night before his inauguration, Shane informed him of his dad’s condition with bladder cancer.
President Trump was so touched by Mr. Bouvet and his family that immediately wanted to help. So he cut him and his family a check for $10,000 (from his own pocket) to help cover the costs of Mr. Bouvet’s chemotherapy.
The President’s personal donation was the stepping stone Mr. Bouvet needed to ensure he received the proper treatment to get him on the road to recovery.
“The president saved my life,” Bouvet said. Don and Shane Bouvet got a chance to meet with the president in the oval office last Friday and tell the president firsthand.
"It's very emotional because ... one day I wanted to come here, or meet you somewhere, shake your hand, look you in the eye, and say, 'Thank you for saving my life,'" Bouvet told the president. "And I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Next to his wedding day, Mr. Bouvet said meeting President Trump while cancer free is the best day of his life. His father said they would not have been able to afford treatment if not for the generosity, and timing, of the President’s donation.
In addition to the personal donation from President Trump, The Bouvets also left the White House with plaque and a note personally signed by Trump that reads, “To Shane, Great Going!”
Truly a heartwarming story!
