When you think of an all American boy, you probably picture someone like Dallas.  He was tall, blonde hair, blue eyes, great sense of humor and a sweet soul.  He was a son to Larry and Shel DuBose, a younger brother to Jessica DuBose and the identical twin to David DuBose.  Like a lot of Florida boys, he worked part time at Publix, liked getting into mischief, loved good music and the Florida Gators.

In 2006, Dallas was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  With no time to waste the family and the Univeristy of Florida Brain Tumor program went to work on healing Dallas.  Through surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, tests, scans and pain you or I cannot fathom, Dallas never complained, not once even in his final days.  As his mother wrote, "Through it all, Dallas, as usual, takes it all in stride.....not one complaint has been uttered. What a remarkable young man he is.....how courageous and brave. He is the epitome of grace."

When Dallas was first diagnosed, he was given 3 months to a year to live, but defied diagnosis and as his sister, Jessica, stated, "although Dallas is gone from us now, I hope you all realize that he did in fact beat Timmy (tumor)...Dallas fought valiantly for nearly 3 years."

It was through Dallas' will to live, his family's support and faith, and the University of Florida Brain Tumor program that Dallas was able to make the last years of his life filled with more life then most ever know.

Dallas' spirit lives on in his family and those lucky enough to have known him.  By donating to our cause, you will continue his legacy.
