Trump Donates $10K To Campaign Volunteer For Father Battling Cancer

RealClear Staff


     When single-dad, Illinois-local Shane Bouvet volunteered his time to campaign for Trump, he certainly wasn’t expecting front-row seats to the Inauguration eve concert. On top of that, not only did Bouvet get to meet President Trump, the newly appointed president gifted him a $10,000 check to go toward Bouvet’s father’s cancer treatments!

“Fox & Friends” had-year-old Bouvet on their show to share his miraculous experience.

“[Trump] is such a genuine, caring, loving person who just really cares about the American people,” Bouvet told Ainsley Earhardt. “For what he did for my dad and gave him that extra fight, I don't know how I'll ever repay him.”

Before the Inauguration, Bouvet got a call from a Trump staffer explaining the president-elect caught an article on Bouvet in The Washington Post and was inspired by his situation.

While Bouvet was enjoying the concert, a Secret Service agent approached him and escorted him directly to the president. Overjoyed, he called his father and passed the phone to Trump.

“Thank you, Donald Trump, for everything that you’ve done for my dad. ... You’re such a great guy, and you’re going to be the best president of the United States,” Bouvet said.
