In Memory of David Joseph

With a grieving soul I regret to announce on 04/27/2021 at 9:25pm, I lost my heart, my only child, my son David. I dare say there is no pain greater than a parent losing a child. My heart is broken and I am completely lost without my boy.


David was admitted to the ER in late 2020 with renal failure. While there he was diagnosed with stage 3c testicular cancer. He spent his last few months bravely fighting hard at Cedar Sinai in Los Angeles, Ca. He actually beat the cancer, however he wasn't able to overcome all the complications. The chemotherapy destroyed his body but not his spirit. He fought until the end. I was by his side until he took his last breath and he was braver and stronger than anyone I have ever met.


David was born in San Diego Ca, and like many, went to LA to chase a dream and unfortunately the city swallowed him up. He had a hard life and a horrendous last few months. He was a generous soul (would give you his last few Jolly, had a wonderful sense of humor and LOVED to fish and play video games. He was an aspiring and talented artist who loved to write lyrics and poems. More than anything he loved his momma.


Endless gratitude for anyone who wants to donate to help cover travel expenses (I traveled back and forth from Texas to LA while he was in the hospital) and end of life expenses. We recently used most of our credit to help our dog fight lymphoma and were not at all equipped or prepared for this. I haven't been able to return to work since his death, and my paid leave will run out on 05/17/2021. I am working with counselors to help me process my grief and depression, but at this time I am not sure when I will be able to return to work. David was unemployed and had no resources.


Any donations received above expense will be donated in David's name to the following charities:
