Approximately 6 months ago, through an unrelated doctor’s visit, Duben discovered that he had cancer. They caught it very early and the type of cancer he had (lymphoma) is very treatable (90+ % cure rate at the stage they caught it). Duben underwent chemo therapy over 4 months, He finished chemo 5-6 weeks ago and received a very positive report from his doctors. Following chemo, he arranged to have radiation treatments at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, Texas, where his oncologist was overseeing his chemo treatment. Radiation treatment follows chemo therapy and is usually the last step in the cancer treatment. A few days before Duben left for MD Anderson, he contracted pneumonia. He traveled to MD Anderson where they admitted him to treat the pneumonia, then hoped to proceed with the radiation treatments. Over the last 4 weeks, we received updates from Duben’s wife that he was getting better, then worse. A week ago, we were told that his lungs were damaged permanently by one of the chemo drugs he received during treatment. At that time, he was put on a ventilator as his lungs couldn’t keep up with the demands of breathing on his own. His situation deteriorated late last week and Duben passed away on Easter Sunday. Duben was 33 years old. He is survived by his wife (Carrie), a 2 ½ year old daughter (Ainsley), and a 2 month old son (Anderson). Duben was always smiling, even in the face of diversity, and maintained an upbeat attitude throughout his entire treatment. He was a great colleague, husband, father, and friend and will be missed greatly. In honor of Duben and in support of his family, we are raising money to help pay any bills incurred and to help Carrie maintain her role as a stay-at-home-mother to their toddler and newborn children. 1.
