Dave's Cancer Support Fund

I have always referred to Dave and Dee as my family. I grew up running around with them while Andrew and my brother played ball. Aaron has been one of my best friends since middle school. Creating this GoFundMe account was the least I could do to help with the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis.

Dave is the most humble, gracious man I know and on Tuesday August 1st, 2017 the Brest family received news that everyone fears hearing. Dave, a loving husband and father of 2 was diagnosed with cancer.  After numerous appointments and tests, the oncologist  confirmed that Dave had a cancerous tumor on his right kidney which has also spread to his lung.

Dr's opted to remove his kidney and treat the cancer with oral medication. His surgery is scheduled for Sept. 7th 2017.  A PET scan is scheduled for Thursday August 17th to determine if the cancer has spread elsewhere.

Funding is needed for Dave and Dee and their family as soon as possible.  Specialist co-pays are $60 per visit. This does not include the cost of medications, procedures, treatments, surgeries and hospital stays. Assistance is also needed for gas, food, bills and basic necessities so that they can focus on caring for Dave and helping him on the road to recovery.

No amount of money is too small.  We will keep you all posted as we get updates from his team of doctors. Thank you so much!
