Speedy wish comes true

Posted: Updated:

JOHNSTON CITY -- A Johnston City man got the surprise of his life, thanks to Hospice of Southern Illinois and other community members..

Doug Pelka wished to see a NASCAR racer up close after he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. 

Hospice of Southern Illinois called Senator Dave Fowler who then reached out to Doug Stringer of Great Clips Racing to make this wish come true. It took only a week for the plan to come to fruition. 

"We just hope this makes a big difference in his life," said Sandy Pelka, Doug's mother.
