I want to thank the person at wellman's that took up a donation for Gage Cheers while he has been sick, and had surgery in Omaha. I thought you might like to know how the money was spent. Gage's dad and gf got to enjoy staying in a couple nice hotels, not the closest to the hospital, and they shared a $60 meal at the Out Back Steak house, and then they hit the malls, Menards, Lowes, the Harley shops, and a Head shop! It's a good thing Gage has a devoted mom who has not left gage's bedsied for 8 days, and counting. She sleeps on a cot in his room, eats her meals in the hospital cafeteria, and is missing work to be there for her son. The next time you take up a donation, you better check where the money is needed.
Oh my god

We all know how dedicated Gage's mom is to him, and the rest of her kids. She doesn't need "hand outs" of money to SHOW her love to Gage.

The money wasn't so she could "show her love". It was to help with medical expenses and with wages lost while she sat by his side. Money collected by concerned friends and co workers is not a hand out. Friends and loved ones do that for each other. It is a gift.

Strangers and the U.S. government give hand outs.

How sad! How could anybody turn their child's hospital stay into a vacation? If my child was in the hospital, hotels wouldn't be an issue, because I never would leave the hospital. How is Gage doing anyway?

How sad is that...little boy sick in the hospital and his father and girlfriend spends the money on themselves..maybe people could start another donation and personally present it to Gage's mother, so the loser father can't spend it on himself. I am sure that his responsible mother would use it wisely and use it for the benefit of Gage..hope Gage is feeling better and get's well soon..

FIRST....I DIDN'T KNOW OF ANY DONATION....SECOND I WOULDN'T DO THAT!! THIRD.... HIS MOM DID LEAVE THE HOSPITAL MORE THAN ONCE NOT THAT IT MATTERS. FOURTH... I WAS AT THE HOSPITAL AS SOON AS HIS MOTHER CALLED ME. I TOOK ALL THE TIME OFF FROM WORK THEY WOULD ALLOW AND AFTER THAT MADE SEVERAL TRIPS TO THE HOSPITAL FROM CRESTON AFTER WORKING THE NIGHT SHIFT. I AM A FATHER WHO IS DEVOTED TO NOTHING BUT HIS KIDS. I HAVE COACHED FOR BASEBALL AND SOCCER, I GO TO ALL ACTIVITIES, I SUPPORT THEM IN EVERYTHING, I AM THERE FOR THEM AT ALL TIMES DAY OR NIGHT. I PAY MY CHILD SUPPORT ON TIME IN FULL EVERY MONTH!!!!!!!!!! MY FATHER DID HOWEVER PAY FOR A MOTEL ROOM. THE FIRST NIGHT WAS ACROSS THE STREET AND I THOUGHT IT COST TO MUCH SO I "MOVED" TO CHEAPER ONE 5 MIN FROM HOSPITAL. I WOULDNT STOOP SO LOW TO DO SUCH A ROTTEN THING!!! ALL YOU CRITICS CAN KISS MY A$$. YOU JUDGE YET YOU KNOW NOTHING OF THE TRUTH!! CALL HIS MOTHER AND ASK WHAT KIND OF FATHER I AM TO ALL MY CHILDREN!!!!! HELL ASK MY CHILDREN THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!

What a shame that someone would make up all of this. and what a shame that you had to endure their cruelty. If you do as you have said you do for your children, bless your heart. I have no reason not beleive you. Gage is a lucky little boy to have both of his parents love & support. I hope all of you are well. God Bless!

IVe never read this until now, a year later, but whoever made this up should be ashamed of themselves. My dad did every little thing he could to help me. He was there as much as possible. He was there 90% of the time. The other 10% is because he had to work. THANK YOU DAD FOR BEING THERE.
