Who writes this stuff?
This seems to be legitimate — but just be aware — that this general kind of story has been posted before and has turned out (more times than not) to be a hoax and has simply resulted in a big headache for someone receiving all this from hundreds of thousands of other people.
I would double check and triple check that story and attempt to go to the original source and original people directly involved in it and get absolute confirmation - first.
True, we need some new talent in the media. Talent of any measure would be an improvement.
Not obamas girls. They’re sent to private school.

I figured that sourcing the story to Dayton #1 news station would be enough... lol
No kidding. I was going to ask if he had any questions for the dr. when he heard his diagnosis.
Yeah, I saw that was a standard news source, but it’s not the first time a newspaper or news agency has been “taken in”.
And he replied: "Thats OK because I live in the present."
Thanks for sharing this. Looks 100% legit.
Some Freepers sure can be unkind, eh?
Sharing across all my FB accounts, but let’s hope
Lucas is blessed by Freepers.
It takes all kinds, and I love my FR family just like any other family. Would not trade you guys for the world!
