I wanted to make a quick post about the Forks Pit Stop here in Walterboro, S.C.
On 10/8/2018 my father (Kirby Evans) 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.
My father is a cancer survivor he lost his left eye and nose to this 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 iIknow 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. Just so you know, Donna Crosby, my father can not cover his face with an eye patch. It rubs the eye socket raw and where his nose was. It has to stay open and nothing is to touch that area that might rub it raw.
I thank GOD every one is not as small mined as Donna Crosby! I promise you he will never ever set foot in that store again! You should never judge a book by its cover until u have walked a mile in his shoes Donna Crosby. You discriminated against MY farther (Kirby Evans) for the way he looks. Here are some words of advise for you. DROP TO YOUR KNEES AND PRAY YOU NEVER GET CANCER BECAUSE IT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE LIKE U DID TO MY FARTHER (KIRBY EVANS)!

Hi my name is Brandy Evans
I am Mr.Kirbys daughter.
We live in Walterboro South Carolina.
Mr.Kirby (aka Dad ) has lived with me
here in our home for the last 5 years,
with me and his 2 grand children. We do our
best to see to his every day needs. How
ever I can not afford his medical bills
and he is on a fixed income.
I or my Dad would be using your kind donations
to cover his medical costs for Dr. visits and
surgery's/recovery he may need. We also would like to look into
getting him a prosthetic nose. When dad first had his nose
and eye removed do to the (basal cell carcinoma)
they had to remove a lot of bone from his face and around
his eye. They had to get clean margins.
I am sad to say it looks as if his body is rejecting some
of the material that they used to reconstruct around his eye.
So this is one of the major things we need to have checked.
I would also like to have him checked from head to toe
to make sure he is still cancer free. He has a spot that
I am worried about on top of his head and it needs to be
checked asap. Dad also has a few other health issues that I
am concerned with he has high blood pressure,diabetes and
his eye needs to be checked,as I can see that his eye sight is
failing. Last time he had his eye checked he could not afford
the special glasses he would need made.The Eye Dr. would have to
make him something like a eye monocle that would clip
to his hat.
Dad and I set up a joint account at a bank here in Walterboro
to receive the funds that you all so generously donated to him.
Kirby Evans is the primary and I am the secondary on this account we
set it up together. We can not start any of this with out the funds.
I would love to keep each and every one updated on my dads progress. I
am going to leave a few links for our contact info here is mine and dads
e-mail address. This is my e-mail address ([email redacted])here is the
best e-mail address to reach us at ([email redacted])and here
are our facebook links. This is dads new facebook link
(https://www.facebook.com/kirby.evans.982)This is mine
I would like to Thank each and every one of you for making this
possible.I also look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.
Brandy Evans & Kirby Evans
