Tootsie build for my mother with cancer

We all have our problems in life. 3 months ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer. It first showed up in her lymphnode in her leg. Needless to say they have ran every test in the book and cant find the cancer anywere in her body but her leg. This is a blessing, but she does have a very agressive cancer called Carcinoma. It is a relentless cancer that grows very quickly. My mothers tumor has doubled in size the past three months. We are currently getting ready to go through chemo and radiation. I wish I could say I had no experiance with cancer in my family, but this is the 4th person in my family to have it. All three of the others passed away very quickly. It is hard to watch a loved one get sick. It is because of this life changing experiance that I decided to build this truck in my mothers name. My father has always called my mom Tootsie and therefore I thought it would be a great name for the truck. My mom was the one person that really shaped my life as our moms usually do I will be going all out on this truck. It should be the coolest truck I have built to date. It is hugger orange and will have the stock c10 trim. The truck is a cst. I have inlisted the help of Nathan Porter from porterbuilt street rods and Mario Novelli from Novelli rod and customs. There will be no expense spared on this truck. The frame and suspension are top secret. I need the green light from Nathan in order to tell you guys and at this time it under raps. The interior will be full leather all stich work will be perfomed by Santana. The wheels will be 22 by 8.8 in the front 22 by 12 in the rear intro flagstaffs. The rear end will be a winters 10 quick change. The trans, engine will be fully polished. I hope you guys enjoy the ride I promise this truck will be insane. It will be my therapy so please enjoy. Tootsie speed shop will be on the door.

Re: Tootsie build for my mother with cancer

Sending best wishes for a stop to the cancer and a quick recovery. My mom is a cancer survivor, she has beaten uterine, breast, and thyroid cancer and every new day with her is a blessing. Enjoy your therapy, I will be watching the progress as it is my therapy too.
