My Story

David was born at home and has always been a beautiful, fun loving spirit. He has always loved to climb and early on became a professional escape artist. He very affectionate and loves to pretend he is weird sounding animals. He is a cat lover and has a soft spot for babies and younger children. Very smart, too smart actually. Blonde beautiful crazy curls are fitting to his high energy personality. His big blue eyes make him look like a beautiful baby doll. He HATES coloring but loves building with his hands. Very inquisitive and catches on right away. April 2nd of '19, David went from never being admitted into a hospital to becoming a cancer patient also mentally now is almost 16 instead of the innocently naive 5 year old he was prior to treatment and realizing he is really sick. He lost his hair on his birthday weekend and was very upset about it but he always finds a way to make people laugh and said he looks like his uncle now. David loves to be happy and does anything to make people smile. He is a hero among many and Should inspire everyone to have that same mentality!
