    This is very mofo sucky news. I can't "like" this post. I hate that another one of our community has joined "The most exclusive club no one ever wanted to join." Prayers and good thoughts for David.

    This man is positively, without a doubt, good people. Sucks to hear he's going through this. Donated.

    Help David Die with Dignity

    David is one of the heros of #bikedc and DCBIKEPARTY. He and I went through cancer together. We both recovered. He went to Hatteras and I was still not really mobile. And I remember how THRILLED I was to see him with Cate down at the beach.

    Unfortunately David went into remission. He has stopped working. Stopped riding a bike.

    They are collecting to cover his expenses. Please consider chipping in.

    I never met David, but I donated. Everyone deserves the opportunity to spend their final days at home with family, and it pisses me off so f*cking much that this isn't a basic human right in this country.

    I echo this. (And also donated, you should too if you have not already.)

    Thank you for posting, rcannon100. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting David, although he looks very familiar. I know I've benefited from his efforts to promote bicycling in DC and his work with IMP venues. I donated, and I hope David gets to spend the rest of his days with his family.

    Thanks, rcannon100 and other posters, for the heads up. I don't believe that I have met him myself though, like dbehrend, he looks familiar. I hope that we help ease his final days.
