Lucas: Sacred Ground

Jason Pearce was diagnosed five years ago [with Ewing's sarcoma]. Last week, he was sent home from Duke Hospital for the last time. Doctors told he and his wife, Jami, that they should contact Hospice...They decided they needed a field trip. They needed to see a Carolina basketball game in the Smith Center. Wednesday night, that's exactly what they did. And while everyone else was grumbling about "only" a 10-point win over Nicholls State, Jason laughed and cheered and high-fived and clapped along with the fight song. He had fun. He lived.
