Trey Gibson is This Week’s Recipient of Caught in the Act Award
Trey Gibson has been able to do the near impossible. He's been able to turn the loss of his child into something good. In his words, his daughter Emilie might have lost her battle with childhood cancer, but it's his will that they win the war.
In Trey's nomination letter from Madelyne Cox, we learned of Trey's loss and how that loss sparked the formation of "Fight Like Emilie" and how Trey and his wife Candy, continue their efforts to recognize these little fighters all over the world and to make strides for additional funding for children's cancer research.
And it's because of this, that Trey is this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award! Just see the letter we received from Madelyne:
Trey Gibson is one of the most amazing people I know. He (and his family) have faced difficulties (to say the least), but they stay positive. They know that God is on their side and stay focused on that fact. Trey Gibson faced cancer not long ago. No, Trey did not have cancer himself. His daughter, Emilie Gibson unfortunately was diagnosed with DIPG. It is a rare form of brain cancer. My kids and I were able to meet Emilie before she passed away, and she was one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. On Halloween this past year, Emilie passed away. It was a moment that devastated everyone that had come in contact with her.
Recently, Trey Gibson has been able to start up a foundation in his daughter's name (Fight like Emilie) in order to help other children and their families that may find themselves in the same place Trey and his family found themselves in.
To me, this goes above and beyond what most would do.
Trey Gibson is doing everything he can do to make this process easier for others. He deserves to be Caught in the act due to his unselfish heart and love towards human kind.
Trey Gibson, thank you for being one of the "good guys" and being a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live!
And because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse and Silver Star Grille have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to Trey to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
