David Samuelson passed away Monday, May 13th after almost three years of fighting stage four metastatic melanoma. Funds will go toward cemetery/gravestone costs and a reception in Dave's honor.
Being the fundamentally generous and thoughtful person that he was, Dave made it clear that in the event of his death, he wished to donate his body to science for cancer research. Unfortunately, after Dave died the Virginia State Anatomical Program rejected him as a candidate, and Dave did not make any alternative arrangements. Thus, the family has been left to pay for his arrangements.
All funds raised here will go toward:
All excess funds will be donated to the University of Virginia Cancer Center, where Dave received excellent treatment as well as a lot of care and support over the past few years. I (Dave's brother) am also creating a t-shirt fundraiser, all of the proceeds from which will go to the UVA Cancer Center.
