A trucker told by doctors he has only two weeks to live took his last ride as the head of a convoy organized in his honor over the weekend. 69-year-old trucker Ron Gunson was diagnosed with stomach and intestinal cancer on October 20th and by Halloween, doctors informed him that they believe he has only two weeks to live. Once confronted with the news and told that chemo was an option, though it was unlikely to help, Gunson chose to refuse treatment and live life to the fullest for whatever time he has left, and that’s where his community in Arran-Tara, Ontario, Canada, stepped in.
