KUSA - A teen suffering from a rare form of cancer wants to bring joy to other kids who are battling cancer treatments.
Austin Williams is the 17-year-old from Highlands Ranch whose dream car, a 1972 Chevelle, is now parked in his driveway.
A host of people in the community saw to it the teenager fighting rhabdomyosarcoma got the car - just as soon as he got his driver's license.
The second chapter in Austin's dream appeared out of nowhere Sunday in the parking lot at Thunder Ridge High School. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a short amount of time.
With less than 48 hours Daelyn organized "Rolling Dream," a charity event to provide activities and distractions for kids going through cancer treatments.
"I had no idea this huge parking lot would be too small," Austin's mom Daelyn Larche-Sigman said about the packed parking lot.
Everyone was there to see Austin's 1972 Chevelle.
Austin rolled through the crowd in his wheelchair, while his mom explained what she's learned about the car.
"I still don't know very much, but I know a little bit," his mom said.
She knows a lot more than before.
"I know more than it's just blue," Daelyn remarked.
She knows the most important thing about the car by heart.
"This car has gotten him out of bed on several occasions. If he knows he gets to go drive then he's up and out," she said.
So even after a week full of some of his worst days yet he was up and out on Sunday.
"It's just really awesome what people can do in such a small amount of time like this," Austin said.
"Thank you for coming out today on such short notice," Daelyn said to the crowd. "We said we'd do this if we had three cars for Austin - or if we had 103 cars for Austin. And I think we have more like 200."
Everyone knew about Austin and his dream car.
"As part of his dream, he wanted to have a rally and a car show," his mom said.
But there was one thing the crowd didn't know until Sunday.
"We found out last Sunday, a week ago right about now, that the cancer has spread through his bones, his liver, his lungs, his chest," his mom said. "It's everywhere in his body now."
Now is the time to do anything that needs to be done.
Sunday Austin got out of his wheelchair and into his dream car. But he is no longer able to drive it.
Austin's mom has promised she will keep going to car shows - where people will likely approach her with questions about the 1972 Chevelle. That's when she will tell them about her son.
The first dollars for Rolling Dream were dropped into a bucket on Austin's lap on Sunday.
"Rolling Dream," is Austin's idea to help other kids who are battling cancer.
