Colon cancer patient Larry Schabel was walking the hospital halls one day when he happened upon a fellow patient in a sorry state. When he struck up a conversation with the man and encouraged him to walk to clear his head, it was the beginning of an uncommon bond. It was the day Larry Schabel met Larry TK, both fighting colon cancer, and both sharing a passion for tractors. Specifically, red tractors. The instant bond led to a promise: They'd support each other in battling the disease. Soon after they took on another task, rebuilding a dilapidated tractor. When not on chemo they toiled on the project.
