King David The Tumor Slayer...
Once upon a time in a land not so far away, lived a very special boy named David. When David was eight years old, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma, a deadly cancerous tumor the size of a grapefruit living in his brain. David and his family were scared, but David decided to be brave and named his tumor Frank, short for the monster Frankenstein that had terrified him as a baby. Liken to his fear of the monster that plagued him no more, David would set out on a journey to slay the mighty Frank. But, no matter how hard he tried, Frank persisted and David's parents feared for the worst. The doctor's told them David's only hope was to endure a barbaric surgery that would require removing his face to try and rid him of the tumor, with only a 10% survival rate.

Frank Must Die: A Family's Will...
Frank was proving to be a rather formidable foe, as young David's chance of survival grew slim after the first surgery was cancelled because it was too dangerous. But, his parents would not give up hope and one day his Father, Bryn, put out a call to all the people of the land of Ebay that "Frank Must Die." The mighty bumper sticker helped raise funds and kept the family's dreams alive until one day David's Mother, Tiffini, decided there had to be something more she could do than watch her precious son die. Soon after, Tiffini searched the internet for what felt like endless days and discovered the secret weapon they had been hoping and praying for. In another kingdom, lived a surgeon named Hrayr Shahinian who pioneered a revolutionary new procedure at the Skull Base Institute that could save David's life.

Frank The Tumor Is Slayed...
On February 2, 2005, Dr. Shahinian donated his services to the worthy family after hearing their plight and embarked upon that fateful journey with David in the operating room, using minimally invasive endoscopic techniques to help slay Frank. Later that day, the entire kingdom rejoiced, as Frank the tumor was pronounced dead after only two hours. On that celebrated day, through his unwavering courage, David took his proper throne and became King of the Tumor Slayers.
