My name is Nicholas Williams. I'm a 32 year old dad and husband who is fighting brain cancer. Over the last 2 1/2 years I've survived chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and a surgery that left a scar running the length of my skull. My health isn't perfect, but I'm feeling pretty good about myself and my situation, and I still have a lot of fight left in me.
Which is good because now I'm not just fighting cancer -- I'm also fighting the Oklahoma Tax Commission. Two years ago they granted me a vanity license plate that reads "F CANCR". But the F doesn't stand for what you think it does -- to me, it means FIGHT.
But now the Tax Commission says they've gotten a few complaints about my license plate, so they want to revoke it. So here I am trying to fight cancer for my life and also the Oklahoma Tax Commission for something I already have -- something that represents me FIGHTING a deadly disease.
I just don't understand why they would give me something and then try to take it away from me. I'm going to F this all the way. If we can show the Oklahoma Tax Commission that I've got many more supporters than detractors, maybe they'll finally let me have my license plate and stop trying to kick a man while he's down. Thank you for your support.

I want you to renew Nicholas Williams' "F CANCR" vanity license plate. To Nick, the F stands for FIGHT, and I support his fight and everyone else's against cancer. The OTC's behavior is no better than schoolyard bullying, kicking a man while he's down.
I stand with Nicholas Williams. F CANCER.
