David Kramer says that most of the people who pass by his motorhome, parked on the shoulder of Harbor Ave SW, leave him alone.
“There are more nice people in West Seattle than anything,” he said.
It’s the odd passerby who honks, cusses or makes a rude remark that gets to him.
And even worse is the person – at least he hopes it’s only one – who has been shooting out the windows in his RV, the one belonging to his son, as well as others stationed throughout the neighborhood.
Kramer understands that residents might find the motorhome an eyesore – but he wishes they would consider his situation.
“We’re just surviving here,” he said. “We can get moving – but I have to beat this cancer first.”
Kramer is from West Seattle – and moved into the RV only recently, when rising costs of rent began competing with his cancer treatment. He was given only one year to live before starting a clinical trial with Seattle Cancer Care.
“They called it ‘catastrophic stage four,’” Kramer recalled.
His son Daylin Kramer and his girlfriend moved into another motorhome and parked nearby.More ›
