Hope on Wheels gives hope to local boy

first_img He was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008.“It was on September 13, 2008,” Alex said without hesitation. “I finished my treatments in June and I’ve got one more operation.”But the operation will have to wait until the final school bell rings for the year.“I don’t want to miss school,” Alex said, with a broad smile.

We owe so much to cancer research. When Alex was invited to be a part of the Hyundai donation ceremony, we wanted to be there.”Hyundai Motor America and its dealers launched the 2010 Hyundai Hope on Wheels tour on April 1 at the New York International Auto Show and introduced its National Youth Ambassador Brianna Commerford, age 12.“Brianna was in Montgomery for the ceremony and she is an absolutely beautiful little girl,” Morgan said.“She battled Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma when she was just 10 years old. Now, she is healthy and in remission.”Morgan said Brianna is an inspiration to all of those who are battling cancer but especially to children.The Hyundai Hope on Wheels tour van was a part of the ceremony and Alex got to put his handprint on the van.“Blue is my favorite color and I got to paint my left hand blue and put my handprint on the van,” Alex said. “It was fun.”But, the most fun is being back in school this year with his friends and learning new things. Alex’s favorite subject is science but he works hard in all subjects because when he grows up he’s going to be a soldier, “the kind that flies airplanes.”And, Alex has all the right stuff to do just that. Book Nook to reopen Email the author Hope on Wheels gives hope to local boy Published 10:10 pm Monday, April 12, 2010 Hyundai Hope on Wheels is the united effort of all Hyundai dealers across the United States to raise awareness about childhood cancer and celebrate the lives of children battling the disease.U.S. Hyundai dealers gathered at the company’s manufacturing plant in Montgomery for their annual national dealers’ meeting and presented a hospital donation in the amount of $40,000 to Children’s Hospital of Alabama.“Hyundai gives a lot of money to help kids fight cancer,” Alex said. And, Alex knows more about the fight against cancer than any kid should ever know. Alex Morgan kind of shrugs off questions about his illness. He’s not too interested in talking about brain tumors.He would much rather talk about school, his best buddy Trevor Bryan and being a soldier when he grows up.But the seven-year-old was obviously proud of his new “Hyundai Hope on Wheels” tee shirt and cap and still excited about being a part of Hyundai’s check presentation ceremony Monday in Montgomery.

Letters to the Editor for Monday, Feb. 11

first_imgI’m referring to attitude of guardians, the lifestyle kids see and hear, day in and day out. Kids having no discipline or encouragement at home. It’s like Groundhog Day: same thing over, and over, same report, year in, and year out. Tell kids the truth. Everyone is not made for college. With all the trades begging for good people, that’s where their future lies. It takes hard work, no drugs, dressing right, talking right, you get it. Until the real truth is told, nothing will change but the deceivers. Al Marvell Scotia Warren perfect for Dems’ mentalityDemocrats, you can stop looking for your 2020 presidential candidate.All you believe in has been identified in the perfect candidate. Elizabeth Warren, liar, mentally ill, deceitful, devious, self-promoting and quick to jump on the diversity bandwagon.Geraldine KrawitzSaratoga SpringsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Change culture by telling kids the truthFirst, you were spot on in the editorial about Cuomo and, most important to me and many others, Schenectady County education and graduation rates.All the money in the world isn’t going to change things unless the “culture” does. Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTrump policies are hurting middle classDave Edwards’ Jan. 26 letter opposing raising taxes on the very rich makes assertions that require examination.When the rich paid their fair share, the United States was prosperous. The middle class was built during the 1950s when the top tax rate was above 90 percent; in the 1960s, a decade of unsurpassed economic prosperity, the top rate ranged between 70 and 91 percent. Today, as the middle class shrinks, the wealthiest one percent, according to the Tax Foundation, earn over 20 percent of all income, but pay taxes at a rate of about 27 percent, far less than the 50 plus percent Edwards suggests.The richest 0.001 percent of Americans earn over $160 million annually, but pay taxes at a 3.5 percent rate. The recent Trump tax cuts, most of which benefit the wealthy, have created a huge budget deficit that will eventually justify cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.Despite Edwards’ claim to the contrary, the American economy did better under Obama than under Trump. First, Obama started and sustained the 100-plus months of economic expansion that Trump brags aboutSecond, during Obama’s first two years in office, job growth was better, and the unemployment rate fell faster.Finally, the economy grew more rapidly in 2014 and 2015 than it did during Trump’s first two years.Unfortunately, the Obama recovery is now showing signs of a slow-down thanks to Trump’s unpredictable behavior and his ill-advised tariffs that have triggered a trade war.William ScheuermanScotialast_img read more
