Bob Steeves of Grande Prairie has a great truck & a great story to tell. He drives a Toyota Tacoma with Tepui Tent, Tepui Annex, custom bike rack and a Leer 100R canopy, all installed by Raven Truck Accessories in Grande Prairie. Here’s his tale: Over the period of 18 years, Bob battled through Hepatitis C, Liver Cirrhosis, mental illness, hip surgery, Liver Cancer, and a Liver Trans- plant. At one point, the doctors gave him only 6 months to live. After the successful liver transplant, his cancer was officially gone! The road to full recovery was long and during this time he started a treatment called Harvoni. It’s a 3-month plan to cure Hepati- tis C and although it was expensive, at the cost of around $80,000 CAD, the medication worked! By late 2017, Bob’s fight with Hepatitis C was finally over.

To celebrate his newfound health, Bob’s daughter, Devon, surprised him with a 10-day all-in- clusive trip to the Bahamas. Bob had never even left Canada before that. He only found out about the trip on the day he was to leave, so it was truly a surprise. Devon got a lot of help from Trip Advisor and Global Degree. Bob and Devon had an amazing experience on Bob’s trip and, according to Devon, this is what they learned along the way: First, “Ask and you shall receive: If you want something, just ask. The worst thing anyone can say in response is ‘no’. Had I not reached out for help with this project, it may still have been just an idea.” Secondly: “Helping others make dreams come true is one of the greatest gifts you can give.” Finally: “LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST! Would you rather be on a deathbed of regret or know you spent your time here on earth doing what makes you happiest? Life is short and unpredictable. Awaken to a life truly worth living!”
