    Ant is doing really good, he really started to talk and now he wont stop haha. He had radiation done in September, it was kinda our last resort before having the eye remove like one of the surgeons suggested. It paid off, he has had 3 good scans and this next scan will determine if his trips will be pushed out to every 3 months instead of every 4 weeks. This kid has been killing mac and cheese like it's going out of style along with pizza and chicken nuggets.

    It's kinda crazy to think about what has gone on in the past 2 years. Everything is getting better day by day, and I finally realized I wasn't going through his treatment and losing my mom alone. Anthony's mom was there the whole time, so I asked her on 12-3-19 if she would marry me. 20191116_200238.jpeg IMG_7160.jpeg IMG_1188.jpeg 20190721_022407.jpeg

    Adrian - great to see you on the forum, especially for a cause like this.

    Much respect for putting this together, especially considering everything you, Ant, and Liz have been through this past year.

    God bless you brother.

    Edit - I just saw you proposed to Liz! Congrats man!!!

    Going out in a 2000 hp lambo at full throttle seems like a good way to go.

    A ton of people came together to make this kids dream a reality. People have offered to ship their Lamborghinis down for the dad and son to use for a day.

    UGR stepped in along with Lamborghini of Charlotte and others. I was unable to attend the event due to work, but I got to see one picture of him sitting in his dream car. Hopefully I can find some more of the pictures and hopefully someone got a video of him riding in it.

    Tomorrow the family will be heading to Atlanta and he will be able to ride on the track.

    I wish their was more I can do on my end.

    So damn sad but thankfully he can ride a bit of a high for now. It’s also damn cool to hear people offering to ship their car to the dad, that just gives you a good feeling know there are still great people out in the world.

    I don't know if it is from being a parent, but seeing that photo of Will sitting in the Lambo teared me up. Putting a face against the situation set in hard. Thinking about the parents, what they are going through. Really great to see people coming together and help as much as they can.

    Looks like Will had a awesome day thanks to a ton of people. I'll continue to try to find some more footage of his event.

    Very cool story. Thanks so much for posting all this. Heart warming. Prayers to him, his family, and to those that made his dream come true.

    Man that sucks you couldn’t go because of work. I would’ve called in sick or something. Really cool to see so many super cars turn out, that’s awesome!

    Just curious tho, I’m a little confused on the names. The kid in the car is named Will and had the heart procedure done correct? But previously you were talking about someone named Anthony, who’s who?

    Car guys are people with compassion like most anyone, and they also love a reason to share/show off their hobby. Find a local forum for exotics, or a Lamborghini specific forum and put it out there. You will end up with a parade of cars is my guess...

    Look at the head of hair on this guy! Anthony has come A LONG way. Absolutely fantastic. Many people praying and thinking of you and yours. @BrunotheBoxer

    Will looks like he had a great time surrounded by lambos and ferraris.

    I’m reading this as my two, currently healthy girls are wrestling with their cocker spaniel without a care in the world. I am feeling very blessed right now after reading this.

    Being a parent is scary enough. It’s so good to see your son doing wonderful @slow06.
