MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - At just three years old, Maui boy Trucker Dukes is garnering national support on social media as he battles an aggressive cancer.
The #TruckerToughChallenge is making rounds on social media. Supporters post a tough face photo to Facebook, usually with a shaka, and tag their friends to join.
Trucker was diagnosed with stage IV Neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer, two years ago.
Although Trucker's parents have enrolled him in a hospice to help with pain management, the family is keeping their hopes strong.
"Some days are a lot harder than others to keep the pendulum on the light side, but we have fought really hard to live there and we still find joy in every day in every circumstance," Shauna Dukes, Trucker's mother said.
Trucker has undergone 12 rounds of chemotherapy and other surgeries and treatments.
The social media challenge has reached tens of thousands of people across the nation. Click here for more information on Trucker's challenge.
