Super Dave

"Super Dave" ,as he is known by his friends and family, is a man who is adored by everyone that knows him. Dave is a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. He is the maintenance supervisor for the village of Roberts. Anytime day or night if someone has an issue Dave comes to the rescue. That is how he earned the name Super Dave. Dave gives of himself to anyone that needs a hand, but now it is Dave and his family that need a hand. One late November morning in 2017 Dave and his co worker were hanging Cristmas decorations around town. When they finished he noticed he wasn't feeling very well, his heart was racing . He went home to rest for a bit, but his heart just wouldn't slow down. This was something that he had never experienced before so he went to the emergency room. They did an X-ray of his heart which led to the discovery of a tumor in his lung. Subsequent doctor visits and more testing brought the heartbreaking news of stage 4 lung cancer, as if being diabetic wasn't enough to deal with. Dave still tries to push through and work as much as he can as he begins his chemo treatments, but more bad news was to come. His insurance denied the imunotherapy Keytruda that he needs in conjunction with the chemo. Dave's wife has been unable to work for several months due to her own health issues and on the day of Dave's first chemo treatment their thirteen year old son slipped and fell on some ice and broke his ankle in three places requiring surgery. Dave and his wife Kris are very humble people that wouldn't ask for help for themselves, but they need it now more than ever so I am asking please help these wonderful people. They are going to need to cover their bills and also the medical bills that are coming their way, not to mention the cost of getting back and forth to all of the doctor appointments for Dave as well as for his son.
