Welcome to our site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about David.

Be sure to read the journal and drop us a line in the guestbook.

No need to make a tribute donation to Caring Bridge, we've already taken care of that.

IF YOU PREFER NOT TO POST A MESSAGE DIRECTLY TO THE SITE, email ( and I will put it into the Guest Book.

David Wilson has many identities - loving Dad, Husband, Grandpa, Uncle, Brother, Friend, revered Scholar, Professor, Colleague, Mentor and more.

David (Dad) had an episode in July that was misdiagnosed as a mini-stroke. After a quick trip to the ER, he was released. Then a follow-up to the doctor and he was scheduled for an MRI in November (thank you Canadian Socialized medicine). Dad started to have memory problems, headaches and an inability to say or write what he was thinking. When his condition declined rapidly, Susan (Mom) took him to the ER.

After many tests, they found multiple tumors in his brain and a lesion on his lungs. Dad has been diagnosed with large cell lung cancer that has metasisized into his brain.

While our hopes are strong, his prognosis is not, so we decided to be candid and honest through this time, not to mention embracing the kind of humor Dad is known for. With that said, Dad is a fighter and has fought so many impassioned battles, why should he change now? Knowing him, he'll fight hard and prove them all wrong about the 3 - 12 month timeline.

Our Dad would love to hear from you often, especially to recall a David story or how he may have inspired you.

If you have a photo of David somewhere on the planet, email to ( - we'd love to post it in the photo gallery.
