Family members of 3-year old Trucker Dukes will be honoring Trucker’s life at 11 a.m. on Friday, March 10, 2017 at Hope Chapel in Kīhei.

Those in attendance are asked to bring a pūpū to share as they join in celebrating the way Trucker touched the lives of thousands as he battled a form of childhood cancer.

Trucker passed away on Friday morning, March 3, 2017 in the arms of his mother.

Shortly after he was born, Trucker Dukes was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma. He was first diagnosed with the rare and aggressive cancer in November of 2013. After two years of treatment, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation and surgical tumor removal in his abdomen and brain, Trucker went home to Maui.
