I've given him money in the past. Then my wife told me she saw him all full of energy one day talking on his cell phone. Thats when i started keeping my eye on him. Sure enough, I see him walking down the street looking happy & alive and chatting away to his buddies on his cell phone, but when he gets into begging mode, he moves at a snails pace as if he is in pain. From what I understand terminal brain cancer has a life expectancy of 3 months to 1 year. This guy is going on at least 4 years and who knows how long he was there before I moved into the area. Reminds me of another guy who held sign saying he had a 9 year old daughter to take care of and he just needed a little help. I come back 3 years later and he is still holding the same sign. Daughter is still 9 years old after 3 years. I have more respect for those guys that hold a sign and say "why lie, I just need a beer"
