Meet David, a kind-hearted 11-year-old from Salisbury, NC. Following in his grandpa and dad’s footsteps, Dream Kid David is a lifelong Atlanta Braves fan and according to their family, the 2023 MLB season couldn’t come soon enough!
At the end of last year, David was thrown a curveball after he came down with the flu and wasn’t able to bounce back to his typical self. During the final week of December, David received a scan in the Emergency Room that revealed a mass on his chest. As a result, he was immediately transferred to Levine Children’s Hospital. At the hospital, the biopsy confirmed the tumor was cancerous and David was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
David is taking his fight one day at a time and is hopeful he will be able to return to playing baseball with his team and older brother very soon. David’s sports dream is to attend an Atlanta Braves game and meet the players!
