David’s Story

Site created on January 5, 2019


David has been living a fulfilling life as a husband, father, friend, community member, and tour bus operator since 1989. After years of providing outstanding customer service, tons of belly laughs from his great jokes, being the life of the party and the glue that holds the family together and one who would give you the last nickel in his pocket; David was given some news that would change his life forever.

In January 2018, David was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Pancreatic and Liver Cancer by the doctors and left to make some difficult decisions about his future. Our fearless and strong  David (Bear) rolled up his sleeves, put on his boxing gloves and said “I’m going to fight!” And thus David’s healing journey began….

Since February 2018, David has been enduring chemo treatments, infusions, and surgeries to aid in getting rid of the tumors found in the pancreas and liver. Though most sessions have been successful, there have been many days of side effects that have affected David’s ability to continue to work as a Tour Bus Operator. 

This a devastating blow to David as he is the sole provider of his family of 11. 

Yes it has been a roller coaster of emotions and throughout it all, David continues to smile and bring joy to those around him. 

There is a long road ahead, but we vow to continue to stand strong with David (Bear) and to keep him uplifted and encouraged daily. Join us!
