“I’ve been in kind of a bad situation for the last few years coming down the Mississippi River, and people have helped me out so I’d give it back to all of the people on the river. And then I’d give it to a cancer organization somewhere, I’d give it all away,” said Kelly Phillips. “I ended up getting diagnosed with Cancer and they gave me three to four months to live and I’m here three years later, so I’m like…I’d just give it away, I don’t need money.”
