Trump Donates $10K to Campaign Volunteer for Father Battling Cancer

One lucky Trump campaign volunteer was surprised with front row seats to the Inauguration eve concert.

However, the surprise soon became much more meaningful.

Shane Bouvet, a single dad from Illinois, had the chance to meet President Donald Trump, who gave him a check for $10,000 to be used for his father’s cancer treatments.

The 24-year-old was a guest on “Fox & Friends” Monday to discuss this life-changing experience.

“He (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.”

Bouvet said he received a call prior to the Inauguration from a Trump staffer saying the president-elect had read an article about him in The Washington Post and was inspired by his story.

While at the concert, Bouvet was escorted by a Secret Service member to meet the president. He called his father, and Trump got on the phone to speak to his dad.

Trump then wrote Bouvet a check for $10,000 for his father’s chemotherapy treatments.

“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.
