52 truckers do something incredible for man diagnosed with rare cancer

Absolutely incredible.

Chandler Ross

A group of truckers in Mississippi came together for a beautiful display of kindness and support for a community member battling cancer.

Twenty-year old Rolling Fork, Mississippi resident Chandler Ross was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma — a rare form of bone cancer — according to local news outlet WLBT.

Ross spoke about his diagnosis at a prayer meeting at a local church attended by friends, family, and community members.

After hearing Ross talk about his cancer diagnosis at the prayer meeting, local farmers and truckers decided to something special for him as he made his way to receive treatment at St. Jude hospital in Tennessee.

Fifty-two trucks lined up along Highway 61, honking their horns in a gesture of solidarity and community as Ross made his way to the hospital for cancer treatment. Community members and friends held up signs to show their support for Ross as he drove by.

Ross later wrote:

I want to start off by saying that I am truly blessed to live in a community that is so small, but has so much love and support! This morning as we had just left the church on the way to memphis farmers, friends, and family lined the sides of highway 61 with 52 big trucks to wish me luck on this adventure! I love each and everyone of you guys and I thank you soo much for the love and support that I have received!!! #teambossross
