This story just tore me to shreds today. WE LOVE EVERYONE no matter HOW you look!!!
Cancer survivor told to leave shop because face scars scared customers.
The 65-year-old had tried to enjoy a coffee and a doughnut but a manager told him to leave.
He told ABC News 4: "Next thing I know, 'come here', she jerked me into her office.
"The words that came out of her mouth hurt me so deep."
Mr Evans claims he was told to cover his face or get out because other customers were scared of him.
He added: "How can a person eat anything with his face covered?"
His daughter Brandy - raising money on Go Fund Me - took to Facebook to tell of the ordeal her dad had gone through.
She said: "The owner grabbed him by his shirt and pulled him into her office.
"She told him, 'If he was going to eat in here he would have to cover his face'.
"He left and went home in tears to tell me what happened".
She added: "My father is a cancer survivor he lost his eye and nose to this awful cancer.
"He cannot help what the cancer did to him.’
Mr Evans was stuck down with basal cell carcinoma and can't afford reconstructive surgery.
His skin is also so sensitive that he can't wear an eye patch.
Brandy added: "It rubs the eye socket raw and where his nose was.
"It has to stay open and nothing is to touch that area that might rub it raw."
But a woman who appeared to identify herself as the heartless shop manager brazenly defended her decision.
She wrote: "I run a food service business where people dine in.
"I do not see absolutely anything wrong with what I did.
"He would come in at lunch time and sit at the food booths right at my busy time every day.
"I have bills to pay and I work very hard to please customers."
Needless to say the world is outraged. I read that a PROSTHETIC company has offered to do his facial implant for free ($75,000 or more) His go fund me is is over $70,000. And the lady? Well she is having eggs thrown at her business and people with cancer have started to picket. SHE PICKED THE WRONG MONTH (CANCER AWARENESS) to be a monster!!

That sucks big time. I do reserve a tiny bit of understanding for the shop manager though. That shop has to pay their bills and salaries as well. I hope the Go Fund Me campaign raises enough money for the reconstructive surgery and if you post the link here, I'll pitch in.
