You are so awesome. I love your stories. I feel like I'm right there with you. I'm so glad you're a fighter. Nine months my ass. You keep on rockin!

Dave, you truly are an inspiration and your story is a miracle. I wish you 30 more months, 30 more years, 30 more walks in my native British Columbia.

My friend's mom, like you, was just diagnosed with kidney cancer stage IV last week. I don't think the prognosis is good as it has metastasized to her bones. I'm afraid even to share your story with them. I hope there's hope but her circumstances aren't exactly the same as yours... I guess I'm just searching, for what I'm not sure.

Happy 30 months and many many more. Thank you for sharing your 30 months with us. You are an inspiration to all. Thank you for sharing "62 year old Dave" with us and letting us have the priviledge of knowing you, Sherry and Alex. Thank You for lifting our hearts with stories of Gracie. Thank you for being "You". I wish you the "happiest" of Birthdays. I do hope you go for that "Hallelujah walk" and hopefully Sherry your wonderful Knight will be by your side. On Monday we will say "Hallelujah" for you and all Warriors.
