Secret Santa Has Cancer

For more than 26 years, Larry Stewart was the Secret Santa who gave away millions of dollars and no one knew who he was.

Now that he has cancer,

he wants to inspire others to do the same. He said he thinks that people should know that he was born poor, was briefly homeless, dropped out of college, has been fired from jobs, and once even considered robbery.

But he said every time he hit a low point in his life, someone gave him money, food and hope, and that's why he has devoted his life to returning the favors.

Returning the kindness of strangers.
