Dave Balch

Dave Balch has a unique, inspiring, and loving story to share, coupled with the experience, desire, and ability to share it.

He supported his wife through four successful battles with breast cancer, going with her to over 250 medical appointments and caring for her during six surgeries, two rounds of chemotherapy, and three rounds of radiation treatments. He did everything from bathing her to making her meals to changing her surgical dressings, all while maintaining his home software business and taking care of a ranch, two horses, two cats, two dogs, and a really mean parrot.

Most importantly, he and his wife both kept their sense of humor through it all (well, most of it) as they laughed and ate their way through the entire ordeal. Together.

Dave says that this experience, although difficult, was the most rewarding and fulfilling of his life. And, as a professional communicator, he is in the perfect position to help others.

Now Dave is on a personal, full-time mission to help others who are affected by serious illness including patients, caregivers, family, and friends.
