    It takes a special kind of bravery to stare down your own rapidly approaching end and say "Screw this. It's not too late to make a difference." This guy has everything he needed, his family is well provided for. He wants to make a difference, and the reality is that money can do that when properly applied. And while he may not have many days left, he has plenty of dollars.
