In 2011, Dave was diagnosed with leukemia. His reaction was simple. He told his doctor, “Ninety percent of the cure is going to be my attitude and the other ten percent will be your medicine. I have my ninety percent, so you better have your ten percent!”
After five years of chemotherapy, Dave is cancer free. There is no trace of the disease in his body, and it is because of his good fortune that we at DCG have made a promise to children who are fighting this terrible disease. As a past board member of various organizations including Hyundai Hope on Wheels and Hope & Heroes Columbia University Medical Center, Dave has been an integral part in helping to raise over $100 million towards the fight against pediatric cancer.
The DCG Difference is our commitment to donate five percent of all DCG commissions* to a local charity fighting pediatric cancer in the location of the acquired dealership. This is a cause very close to my heart. I believe children are the way of the future, and I won’t stop until the day when no child has to hear the words: “You have cancer.”
*We deliver all of the donations directly to these organizations to ensure that the funds are properly placed. We do not raise this money; it is donated straight to the charities from DCG.
