Last year, Gloria Walker was told that she had late-stage bladder cancer. Her son Dustin asked her: "If there's one thing in the world you can do, what would it be?'"
"She said, 'I’d like to see the pyramids'. Ever since she was a little girl, she's wanted to see them."
Dustin works as a middle school teacher in Philadelphia and could never afford to pay for the trip. So, he decided he could raise the money by selling cheesesteaks.
Dustin’s campaign started on his Instagram story, which friends, family, and his students helped to spread. Almost immediately cars started double-parking outside his house. Faces he didn't recognize started showing up at his front door.
"We ended up doing 94 in one day and we were like just blown away.”
A food truck operator then offered his services and in just six weeks Dustin raised all the money he needed and then some. Their trip is planned for later this year.
