An inspiring young cancer survivor named Lil Jesse Gutierrez is paying it forward with the help of Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, Texas.
Lil Jesse’s family won the #PlanetFordWhisperer contest, and the grand prize was a Ford F-150. It’s a big red truck, ready for a big-sized delivery.
Lil Jesse is a true inspiration, having battled non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer and won. He’s been in remission for more than two years. The 10-year-old performs as a rapper at venues across Texas, and his ultimate dream after winning the Ford F-150 was to deliver toys to young patients battling cancer at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
Planet Ford and Houston Humanitarian Award Recipient Mythiquer Pickett have teamed up with Lil Jesse for the special toy drive. They’re trying to brighten the lives of young cancer patients who can’t be home for the holidays because they’re undergoing treatment.
“Contagious positivity is spreading love, hope, joy and compassion into the lives of people, creating an environment where parents never have to say sorry.” – Mythiquer Pickett
Pickett’s charity is We See Abilities, in which he gives those with special needs a better quality of life through the joy of sports and community activities.
Houston rapper Lil’ Flip will escort Lil Jesse to deliver all the toys collected at both Ford dealerships to about 45 pediatric cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The public is invited to help by dropping off new unopened toys, now through December 8th at both locations off Hwy 59 in Humble (19000 Eastex Fwy, Humble, TX 77338) and off I-45 in Spring (20403 Interstate Hwy 45, Spring, TX 77388).
Then, Lil Jesse and Mythiquer Pickett will load up the back of the F-150 with toys and goodies for delivery December 10th.
