“Nearly three years ago I hadn’t planned on hearing a doctor tell my pregnant wife that she had stage 4 stomach cancer. I hadn’t planned on watching the love of my life, the beautiful mother of my children, suffer and die. I certainly wasn’t prepared for the cost, emotionally and otherwise. Our world was thrown upside-down; torn inside-out.
Nearly three years ago, as unexpected as cancer entered our lives, so did David Caldarella and his foundation.
I hadn’t planned on that warm smile and comforting embrace. I hadn’t planned on his strength, friendship and guidance. I hadn’t planned on so much LOVE and HOPE.
I was fortunate to receive the financial support from DDBCF. But more importantly, I feel blessed for the ceaseless emotional support that my family received, and continues to receive, to this very day.”
