Cancer survivor fulfilled Fieri at Bread and Circus

Derek Gerlach, 12, poses with "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" host Guy Fieri after reviewing the Vietnamese fried chicken sandwich together at Bread and Circus Sandwich Kitchen in June 2020.

Shane Gerlach stopped at the Bread and Circus Sandwich Kitchen area virtually each individual month for a year on his way to his son’s in-individual chemotherapy appointments at the Sanford Children’s Medical center.

He’d commonly purchase the Vietnamese fried rooster sandwich to go and try to eat it when sitting down with his wife and son, Derek Gerlach, all through the 10-year-old’s in-affected person chemotherapy classes in 2018 and 2019.

For a lot more than a 12 months, Shane sat in the medical center place and concentrated on Derek, wondering about how to enable his son battle in opposition to his brain cancer while also surviving the poison of the chemotherapy drugs pumped into his human body.

He failed to imagine in a year he’d see his son having that similar Vietnamese fried hen sandwich healthy and satisfied alongside one particular of Derek’s favored T.V. personalities, Male Fieri.
