Kevin Melancon Tearfully Accepts ‘Man of the Year’ Honor [VIDEO]
Last night at an event in Lafayette, Kevin Melancon was honored as the Man of the Year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Acadiana. Kevin brings an energy and light into a room that few people have the ability to. Congrats Kevin! Your friends at Townsquare Media are so proud of you!
Kevin Melancon is the smiling face that takes his post daily at Chick-fil-A on Ambassador Caffery. But with your help, Kevin could have a new title: "Man of the Year" for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. He was chosen for his big heart and real concern for people who may be struggling. Kevin has Downs Syndrome. A disease that he says, "does not hurt". He is motivated by the fact that leukemia DOES hurt and he wants to do what he can to help.
