Young Cancer Survivor Delivers Pizza and Smiles in Ferrari
Pizza and Italian sports cars continue to rev up the news with one San Antonio, Texas, pizzeria using a bright yellow Ferrari and a brilliant young cancer survivor to deliver pies and hope to kids with cancer at University Hospital. TV station KENS tagged along as Damon Bellick prepared pizzas at Lucciano's Italian Restaurant on Oct. 15 before personally delivering the pies—in a bright yellow hot rod provided by the Ferrari Kid organization, which helps kids battling cancer—to his fellow cancer patients and hospital staff. Bellick's pizza-loving customers included Julian Munoz and C.J. Flowers Jr., who met each other while receiving treatment at the hospital for brain tumors. "We always go to the hospital, and we always see each other," Julian told the TV reporter. The owner of Lucciano's, Gerardo Locricchio, said helping sick children is "something wonderful,” adding, “It makes me happy, and it makes Lucciano’s very happy.”
Watch a brave boy help his friends battle cancer with pizza power and a sweet ride.
