Every other Tuesday, Gail Stover makes the 300-mile trip from his home in Missouri to receive cancer treatment at the Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City. On Wednesday, he hops back into the car to return home.

Last year, the biweekly trips added up to more than 25,000 miles. But Stover would drive another 25,000 miles if he had to.

“It’s real simple: The doctors gave me three months to live. Now I drive down here once a week and they gave me back my life,” Stover said.
