David was told by the West Hills Animal Hospital that Bones had osteosarcoma.

Osteosarcoma is a type of bone cancer that could be fatal for Bones. In order to save his life, Bones would need to have his leg amputated.

Unfortunately, David wasn't able to pay for the expensive surgery.

David knew that time was dwindling for Bones.

If he wanted to save Bones' life he would need to act fast, but what options did he have? The procedure was so expensive. David began researching everything he could try to find a possible solution.

It took some time, but David was able to come up with a plan.

After doing some research, David found out that the surgery would be a lot less expensive if he did it in his hometown of Philadelphia. After speaking to David about what was going on, his friends set up a GoFundMe in Bones' name. Bones and David had a long journey ahead of them.

David wasn't sure if they would make enough money for the trip and the surgery.

But at least they would have one last epic adventure. "I was fairly positive this was just gonna be the last road trip we were gonna have. I had to make it really awesome," said David. He packed everything that they needed and the best friends hit the road for their cross-country adventure.
