In December 2018, David was producing a show on the beach in the Bahamas with Damian Marley. He began coughing uncontrollably and ended up in the ER. While treating him, the doctor noticed the shape of David’s fingernails and asked if he knew he had a lung disease. Obviously this was a shocking statement! When he got home, he went to his doctor who said he had pulmonary fibrosis and needed a specialist. Fast forward 6 months and David was receiving a lung biopsy to confirm the diagnosis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.

We have relocated to Jacksonville now to be closer to Mayo Clinic. We moved into an apartment this last weekend. David has already started cardiopulmonary rehab therapy to get stronger before the transplant. We have been told to keep our phones on at all times for THE call that he has a donor. It’s a bit nerve wracking because it could be today, tomorrow or in 6 months!! We are both working remotely and keeping in contact with our sons. Remembering this is a temporary situation gets us through each day. Thank you all for the donations and prayers! We appreciate it more than you know!
