Local man battles with cancer


“I am thankful for the support of my brothers. The response from all of them, north, south, east and west, is phenomenal.”


Despite losing an arm, Beaver still rides his converted black Harley Davidson Street Bob with the club for what he said is the best “therapy” money can buy.

“It took me a while to get back on the bike, but just being with them and traveling to three or four different states, it’s an atmosphere that’s unbelievable,” he said.

He hopes to share good news with all supporters after returning from his hospital visit in New York City.

Beaver said he will continue to do his best to remain happy and busy, regardless of what the future may or may not hold.

He will find peace in caring for his sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and pot-belly pigs.

And, of course, in riding with his biker brethren.

“That’s what keeps me going. If you sit down and think about it too much, you get depressed,” he said.

He encourages anyone battling cancer or illness to try to do the same.

“Look up and keep on fighting, and don’t lie down or think it’s over — because it’s not. Think of a good future and the outcomes.”
