Carlos Turner poured his pain and passion into cooking, and left a bittersweet legacy behind.
The 16-year-old cystic fibrosis patient spent the last few months of his too-brief life perfecting his barbecue sauce recipe - with a little bit of help from the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the form of a cookware shopping spree, and counsel from the Hearts and Hands Palliative Care program at Kosair Children's Hospital where he was treated. He kept the recipe in a locked box with the hope that he'd someday be able to produce, bottle and share his beloved sauce with other fish-allergic barbecue lovers (many sauces contain Worcestershire sauce, which has anchovies as an ingredient) - and share the proceeds with the hospital that had cared for him.
Thanks to Bloemer Food Sales and Texas Roadhouse restaurants, which continued the project after Turner's death in 2008, Carlos’ Homestyle Bar-B-Que Sauce will be sold in selected Walmart stores in Louisville and Southern Indiana, with proceeds to benefit therapy programs at Kosair.
Why does this read as an Onion headline.

Another stupid story. Nobody really cares.
Wow – trolling must be bad today. You are truly the p!ss bucket of society. Go away.

Sadly, trolls have little else in their lives. When he says "Nobody really cares", he left off "about my worthless life"
He's even a pretty bad troll; he has this story to work with and **best** he can do is "Another stupid story. Nobody really cares."??!!
