Grandpa Flies For The First Time In 20 Years For Grandson's Final Chemo Session

A beloved grandpa made a wonderful gesture for his grandson, flying for the first time in more than a decade so that he could surprise him for his last chemotherapy session. Gabe Morris, 26, from Dallas, Texas, had been fighting cancer since January 2023, when doctors discovered a tumor that turned out to be Stage 4 non-Hodgkins Burkitt lymphoma. Due to the severity of Gabe's condition, he immediately underwent treatment, which saw him have four different chemotherapy sessions in five months. During this time, Gabe was given loving support by his grandpa, Paul Sharp, 92, who lives in Layton, Utah. The flight was only the second time Paul had flown in more than two decades, having last travelled in an airplane 13 years ago, family members said. On April 29, Paul entered his grandson's hospital room for the big surprise, before Gabe undertook his last session of chemotherapy the following day. The 26-year-old was then able to ring the hospital's bell, signaling the successful end to someone's cancer treatment.
