    Hey Pinsiders.

    This is Dave Foreman.

    Pics are Before, after, and getting on with life. Dave was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in the left forearm. Unfortunately, the arm couldn’t be saved, but otherwise the cancer didn’t spread on all the other scans. My wife and I have been friends with Dave for well over 10 years. He’s a metal head to his core and we’ve gone to many epic metal shows with him. He’s also one of the most gracious, giving dudes I’ve ever met.

    Example…a friends moms car was in the shop where he works. She needed this car to get to her job. A snowstorm was going to hit the area and he knew the shop would be closed the next day. So, Dave stayed at work. All night, alone, and continued to fix it the next day while everyone else was snowed in. By the time the snowstorm had passed, Dave had finished her car, and she could get to work. That’s just Dave.

    This is just an FYI on a Ms. PacMan original upright that will be auctioned off on July 10, 2021 in Orange City, Iowa. I know, most of you will have no interest in this, but if anyone in the area is interested DM me and I’ll give all the info you need.

    Oh, and yes…he was back at work 2 days after his amputation. Dudes a beast.

    Does Dave have a GoFundMe?

    No GoFundMe…small community but big hearts, so we are just doing it local. Thanks for asking though.
