If you’re seeing this, you’re more than likely a friend, fan, or supporter of Dave Smalley. He’s currently in the beginning stages of recovering from some serious health issues, and is in need of our help. Dave had a tough fight against cancer last year. He spent the first half of 2023 doing several bouts of chemo, followed by a surgery to remove the remaining cancer. The recovery from surgery and treatment brought on its own challenges, which left Dave hospitalized with Encephalitis on two separate occasions, for several months. He is back home now, but will need some PT going forward. It’s been a scary year, but Dave is winning his fight. While he was hospitalized he was unable to work, and is left with an astronomical amount of bills. No matter the amount, any donation will go straight towards the care and medical attention needed to get him back on his feet.
