On Monday, Aug. 13, 2012, we witnessed someone in distress at the Tricities Cancer Center. All I remember is his name and age... David, 57 years of age. I didn't get his wife's name. If this is the person we witnessed, we want to offer our condolences, thoughts and prayers to his wife and family. I'm sorry we couldn't have done more. Blessings for strength and courage to you all...
