A Donald TrumpDonald TrumpEPA removes climate change page from website Trump claims millions in savings on Air Force One Presidents with the worst first 100 days MORE supporter who claimed to be Miss Wisconsin 2005 thanked the GOP front-runner in an emotional moment at a Tuesday rally for his help as she struggles with an incurable disease.
She thanked Trump for sending her a handwritten note and said it lifted her spirits after she decided to sign a "Do Not Resuscitate" order as her condition worsened.
She also thanked Trump for the fame that came with her pageant experience, which she said helped her son secure a scholarship.
"Being able to stand on the stage with you in 2005, the outpouring of love that came from that ultimately provided my son when he graduates high school with a full ride to college.”
She repeated multiple times that her son is a Mexican-American and that Trump's generosity helped him.
Trump attempted to convince her she would be OK before leaving the stage to hug her.
“We’re going to be watching your boy, but you’re going to hopefully be around, you aren't going to have anyone watching," he said. "Those doctors are going to be so wrong.”
Various pageant blogs and an online fundraising page from FundAnything, which Trump had invested in, claim that 2005 Miss Wisconsin Melissa Young is very sick.
The fundraising page shows more than $18,000 raised for a college scholarship for Young's son.
