LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – It’s hard to see Glenn Kohler driving around Henderson. He has a 1993 Dodge Dakota truck.
“This is the best truck I’ve ever driven in my life,” Kohler said.
Kohler’s truck features the Vegas Golden Knights and Raiders logos all over it. The logos were a surprise from Kohler’s daughter who wanted to show support for her father’s battle with cancer. Kohler says he was diagnosed with stage three lymphoma last summer.
“It hit us all hard. So, I just wanted him to know that he’s not fighting alone,” said his daughter Annie Bushman. “And that he had a lot of support and that truck is his pride and joy. He drives around and gets along with everybody. likes to talk about it and it makes a difference.”
The day Bushman rolled the truck was the last day of his father’s chemotherapy. That day they also found out that the treatment works. And a month later, the family said he was in remission.
“Just hearing the word is a great test. “Having that feeling of ‘We got through it,'” Bushman said.
“I have to tell you that we have a very big family, so we had a lot of support and support. 56 people probably support every day,” Kohler said.
His wife and daughter jokingly corrected him and said that more than 100 people supported his cancer fight.
Kohler says he’s been to several Raiders games and some Golden Knights games while undergoing treatment and “loved every minute of it.” He is proud of his teams and his family for all their support during this difficult time.
“I am proud to go to this truck. Every time I go to it, I feel like I hit the worst thing that could happen to me. I hit it with flying colors for my loved ones. That’s the bottom line,” Kohler said.
