At 29 years old most men would be unable to grasp a diagnosis of colon cancer. Out of the blue. But David Dubin wasn’t like most men at the age of 29. When diagnosed with cancer for the first time, he felt like it was almost a rite of passage. That’s not to say he was complacent with his colon cancer diagnosis or lacked fear. In fact, he describes that period of time in his life as very lonely. However, given that his father and grandfather before him had colon cancer, David knew the protocol: surgery, chemotherapy, and then move on with your life if you were lucky.
