While the cancer was in remission, she became pregnant, but lost the baby in the third trimester. She went on to have two daughters, but her cancer ultimately returned as stage 4 brain cancer and she passed away nine years after they were married, leaving David with their two young daughters, then four and six years old.

Twelve years later, David remarried and had a third daughter, but he has put on 200 pounds since his first wife's cancer diagnosis. Now 43, 409 pounds and the father of three girls (ages 5, 15 and 18) David suffers from sleep apnea, high blood pressure, hypertension, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.

David looks forward to losing the weight so he can travel, water ski, play tennis and keep up with his active family, and prove that he is stronger than his story.
