Man with cancer told to cover his face in SC convenience store

South Carolina cancer survivor Kirby Evans disfigured by cancer was kicked out of a diner

A SC cancer survivor says he was reduced to tears after a business owner told him to cover his disfigured face while eating in her convenience store.

Brandy Evans says her dad went into the store to buy something to eat, but before he could grab a seat at a table, the owner "grabbed him by his shirt and pulled him into her office".

SC cancer survivor Kirby Evans says he is still having to deal with people treating him differently because of his disfigurement.

"I would never ever want to hurt anyone's feelings but it was the kindest way I knew to come across to him", she continued. "You should never judge a book by its cover until u have walked a mile in his shoes Donna Crosby".

Instead, both she and her father are telling his story to raise awareness of the discrimination that happens to people in similar situations.

It's been shared almost 10,000 times. "My father is also on a fixed income and cannot afford the surgeries it would to take to fix. where his nose was", she wrote. She told him "IF HE WAS GOING TO EAT IN HERE HE WOULD HAVE TO COVER HIS FACE!" My father is the strongest man I know, but - as he told me what happened to him - I watched tears roll out of his eye.

Evans said he has been eating at Forks for a long time, but this is the first time he was asked to cover his face.

"I feel somebody reach up and grab me like this and jerk me into her office", Evans told WMBF News. "Just so you know.my father cannot cover his face with an eye patch".

'He can not help what the cancer did to him'.

Humiliated, he left the store in tears, then told his daughter Brandy what had happened.

She calls out the store manager in the post. I do not see absolutely anything wrong with what I did.

"I run a food service business where people dine in", she replied on the public post. I had no choice! "It was running my customers off", they wrote in the Facebook comments.

Her comment was later deleted, but not before others took screenshots of her response.

A GoFundMe account has since been created for Kirby, raising more than $2,500 of its $10,000 goal as of Friday morning.
