1st Annual Hit the Streets for David Beverly Hills 5K Run - Coming Soon!
David is a survivor. From his Mother's death when he was 15, to his Father's death when he was 17, through rebellion and bad decisions when he was young, Hurricane Katrina when his offices were located in New Orleans, Louisiana, no matter what's been thrown at him, he's been able to survive it, but on December 27, 2011 when he was diagnosed with St
Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer that had spread to his lungs and liver, for the first time in his life, he thought, "I'm not sure I can survive this one!" He calmly asked his oncologist "How long?". The oncologist replied, "The average is two years or less". David was deflated. A million things running through his mind, "I have so much to do", he thought, as his mind was a swirling with thoughts about planning his own funeral to preparing for the battle of his life!
Because of his Christian belief, David said, "I didn't have a fear of dying, I just wasn't ready to 'check out' yet!"
It was at that moment that David dug in and decided to fight. He told his team of Doctor's at Cedars Sinai that he would do whatever they told him to do in order to beat this. He was surrounded by a support system headed up by his friends Barbara Lazaroff and Andy and Jennifer Hanne. Then, having always been a very public person, David made the decision to share his news and journey on Facebook.
"I was truly moved and touched by the response, support and prayers - worldwide, that I received from celebrities to my childhood friends... the messages of hope kept and still keep pouring in."
"I am honored to be able to share my experience and help ANYONE I can in their fight with cancer. It is not easy, but it is worth the struggle and fight. It is in the quiet crucible of your personal private sufferings that your noblest dreams are born and God's greatest gifts are given, in compensation for what you've been through."
"All the Best."
