A cancer survivor is asked to cover his face or leave a restaurant, and he went home crying.
Kirby Evans, a man who survived skin cancer seven years ago, was at Forks Pit Stop, in South Carolina, United States, buying a drink and some donuts, and when he went to sit down to eat, the local manager asked him to cover his face or leave the restaurant.
Kirby’s daughter, Brandy Evans posted on her Facebook account, “My father went into the gas station called the Forks Pit Stop at the corner of Sidneys road and Cottageville hwy, in Colleton County to buy something to eat. He proceeded to buy a pack of donuts and a drink and went and sit down at one of the tables but, before he could get seated at a table, the owner, Donna Crosby, grabbed him by his shirt and pulled him into her office”.
“She told him IF HE WAS GOING TO EAT IN HERE HE WOULD HAVE TO COVER HIS FACE!! He left and went home in tears to tell me what happened.”
The manager told him he was scaring customers and made that insensitive request. “How can a person eat something with their face covered,” Evans asked ABC News.
Evans is a cancer survivor, he lost his left eye and nose because of that awful cancer.
“My father was discriminated against because of the way he looks. He cannot help what the cancer did to him. My father is the strongest man I know but, as he told me what happened to him, I watched tears roll out of his eye. It hurt me to see him hurt like this, especially over something he cannot help. My father is also on a fixed income and can not afford the surgeries it would to take to fix his where his nose was.
The footprints left on his face by the disease, Evans can’t eliminate them with surgeries that are usually expensive, and according to him, he has only a fixed income.
