Rusticdecor4cancer Dave

Hello everyone!!
August 2nd, 2012, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given just weeks to live. After many surgeries, (unable to resect) several types of chemotherapy, different radiation treatments and now clinical trial chemo, I am still here and fighting every day!
I'm doing my best to EARN a living. In 2015, I moved to Pflugerville,Texas to participate in medical trials at MD ANDERSON Cancer Center in Houston. On the days I am feeling "good" (not in pain or nausea) I like to create rustic décor with reclaimed wood. As getting a regular job is not an option (due to constant trips to Houston, nausea, vomiting and all the other fun side effects cancer brings) I still want to do my best at providing for my family without relying on handouts. I want to earn a living for my family while creating décor items for you and your family. Thank you,

- Dave Olson
